- In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
- Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
- And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
This passage is taken from Genesis 1:1 – 3 (NIV). In my adult life this verse has always been replayed at the beginning of each calender year. This year has brought a few familiar challenges to my academic and a personal life. Before I delve into it let me first digress to who I am.
My name is Nhlakanipho Tlhalefo Sibusiso Dhlamini. Many people (especially those I’ve met post high school) know me as Sibusiso. I am the eldest of 4 children, I am a student and have recently switched my course & institution where I study.
I generally am a nice guy, I love to laugh, God is King of the earth Jesus is alive and the Holy spirit is moving. I enjoy house music and like to watch films. My interests are, entrepreneurship, film and television,design, music, fashion, photography, food and people.
Right ! Now, the switch to study Marketing management was quite strenuous and filled with admin, especially when doing all of that in the beginning of the year. I must say that without family support one can get discombobulated by dealing with such tedious administrative tasks without patience and understanding from people.
The end of the month came and a new beginning with it. After much efforts were made to register at my current institution. The light has come and for me the world is a bit brighter due to prayer, family, support, self belief, having a vision and taking responsibility of my past actions.
