Dr Moleen Zunza graduated with a PhD in Paediatrics and a BCom Honours Degree from the University of Stellenbosch - both on the same day.
This high achiever says she has learned how to balance her studies so as to manage the work load.
I think it is my background, where I come from. It is from a very poor background and I felt the need to lift myself up and be somewhere, and also set a high standard for my kids.— Dr Moleen Zunza
Zunza also believes that the world is becoming very competitive and she says it is important to be multi skilled.
She and her family came to South Africa from Zimbabwe in 2008 in search of a better life.
I want to work as a researcher in an academic environment.— Dr Moleen Zunza
But this dedicated woman is not stopping here. She plans to enrol for her Master's degree in Bio-statistics next year.
