My name is Angeles Evans. I come from Zimbabwe and I am the third born in a family of four. Both my parents are alive and they all work as teachers. After high school I was employed at Lesaffre Industry for production of Anchor Yeast in Gweru Town where I was staying with my mother’s little sister. In as much as the salary was good, I had to decide whether I want to work in Industry my whole life or not. The Industry operates for twenty-four hours so we were doing shifts. Most people at the workplace were graduates and some were attached there, with an exception of me and my best friend, Pauline Mutisi, holding the certificates for Ordinary and Advanced levels.
The work was fine as well as the working conditions, but it got boring when others showed you that they qualify for the job and you are not, so I began to hate it. I became angry with myself the other day for being uneducated, and I began to feel uncomfortable because I thought some workers were discriminating me yet that was not true. So last year I decided for myself that I have to leave work and focus on my studies first then go to work. I was woken up by an incoming call from my brother telling me to send my qualifications through his e-mail and told me to be ready for study.
He stays in Swaziland, lecturing at the University of Swaziland with his wife. So they first compared which school was better for me and they chose African Christian College for it is known for good behavior for students as well as good living conditions. I had to also make the decision whether I want my life to be dedicated in studying God’s word. After making that decision, I eventually submitted my application because I thought to myself that the environment and everything I have heard about the school met my desirable place of study. I am excited about the prospects of the impact I will make after my study. I can safely say that coming to ACC was not because of tough situations I faced but a free willed choice in line with the impact I want to make in the world.
