Pandemic was a blessing in disguise for Thato Molobela who obtained 7 distinctions in his 2020 Grade12 results.

Thato said “As an introvert person who doesn’t like to attend classes I found the pandemic as a blessing, because I was able to study on my own and watch videos online.”

With the national lockdown that took place last year March it was a very weird and uncomfortable time for 2020 matriculents.

Despite the pandemic Thato Molobela (17) who was a Grade12 learner at Leolo High School in Praktiseer, Burgersfort managed to pass with flying colors.

He worked hard to lead by example last year to inspire his classmates during the lockdown period.

Speaking to Sekhukhune Times, he said he worked tremendously hard and had many responsibility last year, and wanted to show his fellow classmates that they can still achieve beyond what they could imagine, even during the pandemic.

“We had online assemblies, and in that way I could try to motivate everyone because everyone was struggling during the lockdown period”. Thato said.

He obtained distinctions in Mathematics, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Geography, Sepedi, English and Life Orientation.

Thato is hoping to enroll at The University of Cape Town in the 2021 academic year, he wishes to study MBChB (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery). Thato lives by the words of a motivational speaker Albert Eilstein that says “once you stop living, you start dying”.
