ADVANCED DIPLOMA MULTIMEDIA
My name is Oriel Campbell and I am an Advanced Diploma Multimedia Technology Student at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) for 2020.
During this trying time of the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone is anxious and unsure of what tomorrow might bring. But I am determined to finish my academic year. CPUT announced the resumption of classes through online learning from 1 June. Things are really tough, but the lecturers have done their utmost to ensure we as students receive the best possible learning outcomes during this trying times.
I am a full-time student and completing my academic year is of top priority to me. I have put measures into place ensuring that I will have access to all online resources provided by CPUT; this ensures my completion of the academic year.
Lecturers have put together online tests, assignments and take-home tests to ensure all students will be able to complete this academic year. Being able to complete this year would really help me in the future as a higher qualification would mean bigger and better job opportunities.
I have been in close contact with all my lecturers as I am a Student Representative for the Advanced Diploma Multimedia Technology course. It is not only my duty to ensure my own wellbeing but the well-being of my fellow classmates, because even though we are going through difficult and unforeseen circumstances, I am determined to make the most of this academic years by using the 3 D’s of success:
Discipline – It helps me stay focused on reaching my goals, gives me the gumption to stick with difficult tasks, and allows me to overcome obstacles and discomfort as I push myself to new heights.
Dedication – “the will to win”. I am a person with great determination that has “THE WILL TO WIN” I believe in nothing other than a mind-set that says “I am going to succeed”.
Determination – I am a determined person and I know which road leads to my success, I know exactly where I want to go and I have developed a strategy of how and when to reach my goal.
I believe these 3 D’s of success will carry me though my journey and pave the way for a bigger and brighter future.
