The road may be rocky but it ends at a smooth destination. This is the impression given by a group of recent graduates from Pearson Institute of Higher Education.

They were reflecting on their journey to their graduation day on Thursday 12 April, held at the Klein Grove Club in Newlands.

They were among 298 students who tossed their hats into the air, symbolising the success of their hard work.

Danilson Patricio, one of the graduates who earned his Higher Certificate in Information Systems, says: “I’m happy to be able to conquer this stage because it was not easy to get here. I had to study a lot and I can tell other students that it is not easy but it is also not impossible – it is a matter of hard work.”

Another student, De-Vene Swanepoel, was named the national top achieving student in the Bachelor of Psychology degree and says she is humbled by this achievement.

“Completing my degree consisted of various crests and undercurrents. What kept me going was imagining this very day (graduation day). It helped me to put things into perspective as one week with a flood of assignments and examinations. Now I know my hard work was completely worth it. I want to advise others to remain patient with yourself and your own process of completing your course. Don’t compare your journey and qualities to those of others.”

Guest speaker at the graduation and brand ambassador for Pearson, Maps Maponyane, congratulated the students on their big day, providing them with advice on how to ensure they achieve the brilliance set out before them.

Ebrahim Matthews, managing director at Pearson South Africa, says their graduates have been empowered to be great leaders, and their diligence and tenacity have brought them far.
