Anél’s distinctions have firmly confirmed her a place at Wits University, where she will study medicine.

‘I’m really looking forward to it, despite having none of my friends going to Wits with me.

‘It’s the start of the rest of my life and I am going to make the most of every opportunity that comes my way, as well as work as hard as I can.’

‘I think it’s a very interesting field to go into and it will serve me well in life.
