Our light shines brightly on Nonkqubela Maliza (class of 1984) today, the Director of Corporate & Government Affairs at Volkswagen South Africa.
She shares with us these fond words: “I am a believer in the power of education to transform and uplift lives at a personal and societal level. The education I received at Epworth was of the highest quality- it was comprehensive, holistic and robust – be it in the classroom, in the chapel, on the sports field or in the boarding houses. I learnt to think critically, to speak up, to lead and to serve, and to work hard at everything. All of this was accomplished under the watchful eyes of teachers who were masters in their respective fields, caring and attentive and able to see and appreciate and nurture our individual strengths. Finally, I made lifetime friendships at Epworth and the values of faith, humanity and courage are deeply embedded in my soul.”
