Get To Know The Class of 2021: Nkhensani Khosa
Head of Lakeside Boarding House 2021
What are your hopes for Stanford Lake College as you lead the school in the year ahead?
I continue to strive for a more accepting and diverse student body; for pupils to feel like they are always taken seriously and can confidently voice their opinions on pertinent matters and mostly, strive for greater unity.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
It would be not being the same person as I was when I walked into this school 4 years ago and knowing that I’ve grown as an individual. But also, a bit of a shallow one, being able to say I was a prefect in both primary and high school.
Share a memorable moment during your time at Stanford Lake College…
It was Grade 10 Zim tour, we were on a game drive and it was just before sunset. My friends and I were singing, making jokes and laughing and we watched the sunset from the horizon and saw antelope and her calf, drinking from the water source as the sun went down. It was just an unforgettable moment.
What are your hobbies?
Reading, journaling, socialising, writing letters and listening to music.
If you could share a meal with any 4 individuals, living or dead, who would they be?
Rupi Kaur, Lupita Nyong’o, Malcolm X and Ellen Page.
What’s your favourite movie?
Divergent or Beautiful Creatures
What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done?
Climbing into a snake’s cage, specifically an anaconda’s, for my job shadow assignment.
If you had to describe yourself as an animal, which one would it be?
Where do you see yourself in five years?
I see myself being a 23-year-old , just getting out of university, taking time off before the search of a steady, well-paying job. To also travel around the world, open up a small business like a coffee shop and doing something adventurous like skydiving. Even if it seems mundane, it can still be inspiring.
