Avuye is one of 2 siblings who was raised by her single mom, hailing from Kwanokuthula, Plettenberg Bay. This young lady has always been a top performer when I comes to academics because of the many hours and serious effort she puts into her studies. No wonder she was her high schools Top Achiever when she graduated from Gr 12. She was also her schools Vice President which is a very prestigious leadership role to fulfil. We are super proud that Avuye is our first Born in Africa student to be accepted to study at UCT and even more so that she is studying such a difficult field of mathematics and statistics methodology. We wish her all the best of luck and will walk this path right beside her.
