Mmasechaba Sentle (Botswana, WK 05-11)

1.    What years did you attend Waterford Kamhlaba? (What forms/year group?)

Form1 to IB2 (05-11)


2.    Please tell us what you have done or are doing at the moment? (e.g.. what you studied and what field you are currently working in)


I studied Human Relations, which is a multidisciplinary field that concentrates on theoretical perspectives from social sciences, humanities and organizational studies. Most importantly emphasizing on the importance of work and service. At the moment I am a full time Mum to my beautiful daughter who was born late last year, but before that I worked for an organization called Youth Entrepreneurs.



3.    Could you tell us what inspired you to pursue your career path.


I have always been interested in the human mind and behaviour, particularly how we interact with each other. Taking Psychology in IB also played a part in what I studied it was an introduction to the different possibilities.  However, what I liked about Human Relations is that it was broader and it gave me the tools to face the challenges of working in a diverse and global workplace.



4.    Did Waterford in any way play a role in your career path choice?


a.    If yes: then what has that role been.


Yes, being in a culturally diverse environment made me appreciate people and it made me want to stay in that type of environment, as it is a constant learning process. The other thing was the importance of community service, any chance I get the opportunity to give back I do so. It was something I heavily considered when deciding on what to do.


5.    What advice would you have for aspiring students who would want to be involved in
similar areas of expertise?


Since it is a multidisciplinary field deciding on which career path to take can be difficult. My advice would be do not be too hard on yourself and be patient it is all about learning what you like as you go.


6.    Do you have any fond memories of Waterford? Could you possibly share one with us and could we also ask you to send us one or two pictures of your time at WK?


There were so many!! But I remember the weekend trips/activities in form 1 that the teacher on duty would plan. It was fun most of the times because it kept us busy.

Can’t think of any..repressed memories I guess.
