It was fascinating to hear the stories of the ‘latticed’ manner in which each of these professionals (four of whom grew up in Graaff-Reinet), reached their career dreams. The common thread throughout the evening is that hard work, a never say die attitude and passion are all imperative for a happy career.
The matrics then shared a delicious meal and convivial conversation.
