My name is Londiwe Lucetta Dlamini a 2015 graduate. I am a Swazi by birth and I am a person who is very understanding and patient. I love to mingle with people and one of the things which I believe that God gave me as a gift is helping people which I enjoy doing. I believe that with what I have explained about my personality, the reason why I chose the majoring in counselling has been shown.
My coming to ACC was quite strange indeed. My main aim was to do something rather than staying at home doing nothing. I believe God had everything under control as I have become another person because of him. Therefore my coming here has not been in vain, but rather a benefit to me and the outside world, specifically my country.
ACC has helped me to attain the knowledge that I am having right now, helped me spiritually, and it has also helped me financially.
During my stay at ACC I have met and made new friends from different countries. One thing that I enjoyed mostly is to know a little bit of other people’s languages which is something that I would have not learnt if I had not come to this place.
My temper has also been changed since I came at ACC. I met different people with different cultures and what may not be offensive to my culture may be offensive to another culture. Moreover, patience is something that one must have during his/her time at ACC in order to overcome any obstacle that might be in the way.
Most importantly, I got to know more about God and his Word. Because of that I am no longer the same person I was before. What I have learnt will help me to serve the people around me, my church, my family, and also my future family.
While I was here at ACC I involved myself in two voluntary activities, Masundwvini Orphanage Meals (MOM project) and the school choir. In MOM project, we sing with the children, teach them about God, pray with them, and then lastly we serve a meal to them. With the ACC choir, we were invited to sing in churches, share the word of God, and also sing at the school.
Currently God knows what he has in store for me as I was planning to start with my church to continue my counselling practices. I have also in my mind to apply for internship in some of the hospitals around Swaziland, and, God willing, to further up with my education.
I would like to thank everyone who has impacted my life to be who I am now. A very big thank you to all the lectures for their time in teaching me. I would also encourage those who want to come to ACC to come and not let finances be a hindrance to you as the school provides financial aid and job opportunities to help you sustain your stay.
