- She is promoting education and the importance of it
- Yvonne was again honoured with an honorary doctorate degree in law (LLD) from Rhodes University
South African singer, songwriter, entrepreneur and teacher, Yvonne Chaka Chaka is putting the word out of the importance of a good education.
She herself has decided to study again and to apply at Harvard or John Hopkins University to study public health.
Education has always been a life passion for Ma Yvonne. She has gone so far as to have an input in government to make life easier for those students currently studying. There has to be an improvement in sanitation and classrooms.
In a recent interview with TshisaLIVE, Yvonne stated that her applying to top Universities in America is away for her to set an example for others. She also said that education is an important part of her life, which is the reason she is still studying.
She confirmed that she is in the process with an application to both Harvard and John Hopkins for her to do her public health degree. In a joking manner, she said that she has not spoken about her plans to study too much because if she decides to drop out she will be miserable!
Briefly.co.za learnt that recently, Yvonne was again honoured with an honorary doctorate degree in law (LLD) from Rhodes University. In 2012, she had received an honorary degree from UKZN.
Unfortunately, Yvonne could not attend her graduation ceremony at Rhodes as she was away in Senegal.
Amazingly, a special ceremony was conducted special for her in Johannesburg, which made Yvonne feel so humble. What an incredible achievement.
