UPPER Highway’s Noluthando Mthethwa has become somewhat of a local star since being selected as the Hillcrest SAPS Junior Station Commissioner this year.

Noluthando is a grade eight pupil from Kwadinabakubo Secondary School, which is situated in Molweni.

Speaking to the Fever, Noluthando revealed that she was scared during the SAPS interview rounds, however, the courageous messages that her mentors had given her kept her going.

“Everyone had great answers, then I got scared that I would just stumble and not make sense of anything that will come out of my mouth but, with positive thinking, I succeeded,” explained the 13-year-old.

Noluthando said that she believes that what made the SAPS choose her was her passion regarding the community and how she could make a change in it.

“The community we live in has so many criminal elements and I’m very passionate about fighting them,” said Noluthando.

The Kwadinabakubo pupil went on to say: “The crime statistics are very high in South Africa and it’s the youth who are responsible for it.

“If we can focus on trying to change their mentality regarding what they are doing, we could have a very productive country rather than being a feared one.”

Noluthando is also the highest achiever in her grade and the second highest in the entire school.

“There are people who are always pushing me to do my best and, if wasn’t for them, I don’t know what would have become of me,” she said.

The grade eight pupil said she’s really grateful to her mother, who’s her number one supporter; her school principal; and teachers.

The Junior station Commissioner’s message, especially for the youth, was that they shouldn’t think negatively about themselves because it will totally disrupt them from what they want to achieve in life.

“They mustn’t give up in life, they must always think positive, no matter what life throws at them.

“Always think great things and be unique,” she said.
