Dr Avela Majavu: Village girl’s resilience seriously inspires Mzansi
In similar inspirational news, Briefly News previously reported that another South African woman has inspired many people following her academic excellence. Dr Avela Majavu says she is just an ordinary village girl as she hails from the rural Centane, in the Eastern Cape.
Majavu says she now holds a PhD in chemistry and explains her journey has not been a smooth one. Her story was documented by Varsity World via Facebook.
The bubbly woman has studied at various institutions such as the Walter Sisulu University, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University as well as Rhodes University.
The post reads:
“I am a village girl “Dr” from Centane, Eastern Cape who has a PhD in Chemistry. It has not been a smooth sailing road of success. I enrolled in a National Diploma in Analytical Chemistry and further studied B-Tech in Analytical Chemistry from Walter Sisulu University in East London. Prior to varsity, I studied physical science in high school using textbooks only. My very first exposure to conduct and being in the laboratory to do experimental work was at Walter Sisulu University.
“It was so fascinating and overwhelming being in a different environment and had to adjust to being taught, by new lecturers. I managed to complete in 5 years including in-service training. In my undergraduate journey, I never went to the library to study as so many people overwhelmed me. I would go there to pick or drop books. I used to isolate myself and learn to use the opportunity to study in my room while everyone is gone.
“Waking up early hours was my time to focus and concentrate more. My classmates used to be amazed at how I passed the exams, as they never see me in the library. I once heard one of them while they were coming from the library in the early hours, “I wonder uzopasa njani ethanda kangaka ulala”. Little did they know my strategy of studying; however, it finally paid off.”
