My name is Nonduduzo Dlamini and I am a Swazi. I have four siblings, three sisters and a brother.
I enjoy being around people and it gives me joy when they are happy. I like singing and when I sing for the Lord joy runs through my veins.
I consider coming to ACC a blessing in my life. I have learned a lot about life. I understand people from different cultures and how to live with them. It has been a strong foundation for my life. I got an opportunity to learn what I thought I could have learned in other universities.
I was shaped in a way that I became a different person. I am now ready to face the world and to share the light, not only to my community, but to everyone that I will encounter with. I am going to use the knowledge that I gained to bring people closer to God and to help them understand about the love and word of God.
I was involved in a lot of different activities at ACC. I enjoyed visiting small churches to motivate and strengthen their congregation. Mostly I enjoyed motivating the youth and teaching them about some things that I learnt at ACC. For instance, I taught about HIV and AIDS on how they can prevent it from spreading worldwide. I also taught them from New Life Behaviour. That is one of the most activities I will miss the most.
I was part of the ACC choir (I already said I enjoy singing). One of the things that I also enjoyed doing at ACC was organising entertainment for everyone. It gave me a peace of mind to see everyone together, laughing and sharing their talents.
I also enjoyed visiting orphaned children, the MOM Project which helped to provide food, clothes, and Bible stories to the children. I enjoyed singing and dancing with the children. Moreover, I was also in the Student Representative Council.
After I graduate from ACC I am planning to go out into my community and apply what I was taught. I would love to work with organisations that provide counselling to abused or orphaned children.
My message to current students is that: never give up. The more one learns at ACC is the more one understands what a special and unique privilege it is to be at the school.
To the faculties I would like to say Thank You, Thank You and Thank You once again for making me realise that a lot of work needs to be done in the world. Thank you for helping me understand about the things which I didn’t understand and for equipping me with skills which I will use in life. You didn’t equip me with skills only, but you also taught me to be humble and to respect every soul.
I will never forget the changes you made in my life. Please continue with the wonderful job that you are doing and never stop praising and trusting God. I will miss you ACC!
