Why do you want to be part of UCT Upstarts?
“Upstarts gives students a unique opportunity to experience the "real world" of work, outside the sheltered classroom setting, while at the same time engaging in projects that might impact society in meaningful ways.”

How would you ‘Re-educate Education’?
“I would do away with matric exams in their current form, and replace them with a comprehensive set of exams that assessed writing, reading and mathematics skills, along with 21st Century Skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, and collaboration.”
