Vice-chancellor of UCT inspires through education

Johannesburg- Vice-chancellor of the University of Cape Town, Prof Mamokgethi Phakeng, has taken to social media, to inspire people who aspire to study further.

Fab Academic as she calls herself, said she had other things to take care of, but her education was as important.

“I did my postgraduate studies at Wits part-time while working full time & raising a family. No social life. In 1998, I took leave without pay so that I can have a strong start to my PhD. It was tough financially & personally! In the end, I won,” she wrote.
