This month we’ve changed gears with a more personal story, one of persistence and tenacity.
Persistence - noun the fact of continuing in an opinion or course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.
Through this Covid period, we’ve heard alot about the difficulties people have experienced and school children are no exception. Since February this year, children have also had to pivot and adapt to a different way of life and their schooling has been one area that has been significantly impacted.
Meet Oshai Naidoo.
Oshai is in her final year of school which is challenging at the best of times, but this year has been extraordinary. The disruption of school this year has meant many changes including moving to online classes and being distanced from friends and family. And one thing is for sure, 2020 will certainly be a year that will be remembered for many years to come.
The tenacity that Oshai has shown during her final year of secondary schooling demonstrates that at every stage of life we can be confronted with trying and challenging times, but we always have a choice. Whether you’re a toddler perfecting the art of walking, working hard at school during your teenage years or a business owner making tough decisions, you will always be tested. But pushing yourself and consistently demonstrating your persistence and tenacity is the key to achieving success in any area of your life.
