Mind Action Series congratulated Ziyaad Banderker, top Matric learner in Mathematics for 2021. Ziyaad matriculated at Rondebosch Boys High School in the Western Cape and we caught up with him to find out a bit more about this brilliant young man.
In asking Ziyaad how he felt when he received the news that he was the Top Learner in the country in Mathematics, he answered “I was in complete shock and disbelief when my name was announced as the Top Mathematics Achiever in South Africa. To be honest, when we were invited to the event, the last subject/award I expected was Mathematics, let alone first place! There was an overwhelming feeling of gratitude and relief that all my blood, sweat and tears had paid off.”
Ziyaad will be doing a Bachelor of Business Science course, specialising in Actuarial Science at the University of Cape Town this year.
Ziyaad is definitely a young man with big dreams and when asked what his ultimate life goal is, he was quick to answer “ it is to innovate in the Finance sector of South Africa. In a rapidly changing world, I believe it’s critical that we improve and adapt so that we keep moving forward and ensure a bright future for South Africa. At some point in my career, I’d like to be running my own company that contributes to building a better South Africa.”
Well done on your accomplishments Ziyaad and we wish you all the best for your studies and your career, may it be just as successful as the year 2021 was for you!
