Our focus for this weeks #FastForwardFriday is Pranav Goven.
“Some of the most important skills I learnt throughout my schooling at St Henry’s Marist College is to be able to learn independently and to follow your dreams. My dream was to pursue a business-related career which was mathematical and scientific in nature. I decided to study Actuarial Science as this is a good blend between the two as it involves making carefully calculated decisions around mitigating risk. I matriculated as the 2014 DUX at St Henry’s Marist College then began my studies at WITS University. Over 2015 to 2019 at WITS University I completed three degrees: BSc (Actuarial Science and Mathematical Statistics), BSc Honours (Mathematical Statistics) and BSc Honours (Actuarial Science). This journey was by no means a walk in the park, but I believe that it has equipped me with the skills that I need to make a meaningful contribution to the business world. Currently, I am working as an Actuarial Analyst at Nedbank Insurance while I continue with my professional exams to qualify as an Actuary. I am very grateful for the education I have received at St Henry’s Marist College and WITS University. To this extent, I am offering online Mathematics tuition to school students to use my skills to help students achieve their dreams. Best wishes to the Marist family for 2021!” ... See MoreSee Less
