Proud parents gush over daughter’s 7 distinctions

Kgaugelo Mothupi shows off her Gr 12 certificate with pride, boasting seven distinctions.

POLOKWANE – Flora Park Comprehensive High School matriculant, Kgaugelo Mothupi (18), managed to obtain seven distinctions making her the top learner at her school and now looks forward to pursuing a career in accounting science.

She plans to further her studies at the University of the Witwatersrand and BONUS had the opportunity to talk with her about her achievement.

“I was excited and shocked at the same time. I struggled with my studies and it wasn’t easy but I managed to pull through. My family and friends are extremely proud of me and I’m also proud of what I was able to achieve,” she said.

Upon receiving the good news, Kgaugelo says her parents took her to lunch to celebrate her success. On her choice of field of study, she explained she has always had a love for the subject.

“I want to be a chartered accountant and I know I will achieve my dream”

“Even after I complete my degree, I will continue with my masters and honours,” she explains. She attributed her academic excellence to hard work and sheer determination to always come first and be the best.

This dynamic young woman said her accomplishments wouldn’t have been possible without the help of those around her, especially her parents and teachers who kept her motivated by encouraging her every day.

“All my teachers would tell me that I can do whatever I set my mind to. My mathematics teacher, Mrs Phooko, used to tell me that I am capable of getting seven distinctions and I am glad to have been able to prove her right. To everyone who helped me along the way, I cannot fully express my gratitude.

“My achievement would not have been possible without your motivation and encouragement,” she said.

Shogie Mothupi is Kgaugelo’s doting mother and she could hardly contain her excitement about her daughter’s outstanding achievement.

“I am extremely proud of my daughter, I cannot put into words just how proud I am. She has always been a bright academic achiever but this time she really outdid herself. I am going to buy her a cow and make sure we celebrate her achievement to the full,” she said.

With her dreams clearly in sight, Kgaugelo said she will carry on working hard and making a name for herself in the process.

Her advice to the class of 2017 is to focus and work hard to achieve the marks they deserve, putting them one step closer to reaching their goals.
