Leadership Award for Tshepo Motabogi
We caught up with Media Design & Technology graduate Tshepo Motabogi, 2011 Damelin West Rand Leadership Award winner, to chat about student life and his dreams for the future…
Described by Damelin West Rand staff as being reliable, hard-working and having a positive attitude, Tshepo completed our two-year Media Design & Technology course and dreams of being a graphic designer or architect. “I’m looking for a job in graphic design but lately I’ve been inspired by architectural design and am contemplating a career in architecture,” says Tsepho.
Tshepo received the Leadership Award in recognition of his academic performance, active participation in campus life and social responsibility projects, and ability to lead. His advice for new students is to the point, “Work hard and be determined to succeed.”
“Tshepo is a kind person who cares about the less fortunate. His passion for people and the example he set on campus, made him truly deserving of the prestigious Damelin West Rand Leadership Award,” says , “Tshepo was involved in many of our social responsibility projects and was always willing to assist during campus events. ”
In order to be considered for the Damelin West Rand Leadership Award, a student needs to meet the following criteria:
- A high academic standard
- Active participation in campus activities
- Excellent general conduct on campus and positive interaction with fellow students and course facilitators
- The ability to take initiative and showcase his or her leadership skills
“I loved being able to give back through Damelin West Rand’s social responsibility projects and particularly enjoyed volunteering with Project Hope,” says Tshepo about the programme which aims to empower the people of the Munsieville community, “because I come from a similar background, giving back to an impoverished community is a good thing in my mind.”
Tshepo says the best part of student life on campus was interacting with so many different people. “It was great to be around people with different personalities and opinions. I learnt so much from my fellow students!”
With a mind for design and heart for helping others, we believe Tshepo is just the kind of young leader South Africa needs!
