Meet the Ghost Grads
I am in my first year of a Bachelor of Accounting Science degree at Wits. Though I am a financial newcomer, I am enthusiastically chasing my steepest trajectory. My predisposition to lifelong learning means that I spend too much time with my books! I became a Ghost Grad because it is an incredible opportunity to learn about business and investments.
I am a third-year student playing college tennis while studying economics at Sewanee, Tennessee in the US. I love researching market trends and analysing financials, with keen interest in small- and mid-cap stocks. Being a Ghost Grad will allow me to gain experience in the finance industry and increase my knowledge and skills.
Since I was 12 , I have dreamt of becoming a CA(SA). Now a Wits graduate and a Ghost Grad to boot, younger me would be so proud. I have completed my Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting and I’m completing my bridging year so that I can do my CTA next year. I cannot wait to grow both personally and professionally (with a glimpse of a future career path) and work with the other Ghost Grads!
I am a third-year student at Wits studying towards a Bachelor of Accounting Science and pursuing the coveted (CA)SA designation. I have a passion for finance and seeking opportunities to step outside of my comfort zone. The opportunity to be a Ghost Grad ties in with this perfectly, giving me the chance to regularly learn about the complexities of finance in a real-world setting.
