Mandela Uni published author honoured among the national Top 10 Outstanding Young Persons of South Africa

Awonke Nqayiya, a second-year Mathematics Statistics Master’s candidate in the Faculty of Science has been honoured among the 2021 Top 10 Outstanding Young Persons of South Africa by Junior Chamber International South Africa recently at Sandton in Johannesburg.

Every year, JCI selects 10 outstanding young people nationally between the ages of 18 to 40 years who live the JCI Mission in extraordinary ways and they are honoured for their contributions to creating better societies and creating sustainable impact in several categories. These young active agents of change exemplify an honourable generation of young active citizens

Awonke was nominated for and honoured in the category of academic leadership and/ accomplishment and has been making giant strides during the year. The award follows after he had written and published a Mathematics study guide to assist high school learners struggling with the second paper of the subject. Awonke said statistics are found to be a helpful practice tool that often provides insights into different fields. He, therefore, seeks to develop and apply his level of information in education to students through statistics and to contribute to the academic experience.

Earlier this year, Awonke won the Raising Legend Award in recognition of his noteworthy contribution to bringing change in the community while setting a good example for the boy child. He received a first-place award in the innovation category.
