"I just want to say thank you so much for the best weekend ever in my life. It was inspiring, superb and educational". 

Moshal Scholar, SA

 


 

"I so appreciate everything the Moshal team has done for us. I had such an amazing weekend – the food was delicious and the rooms very posh and comfortable.

As it was my first time at the annual event, I expected boring talks and an uncomfortable environment. It turned out to be the opposite - I felt at ease and comfortable around the other scholars.

I never speak nor ask questions in public, but what was shared by others resonated so much with me that I realised even I could voice my opinions.

It is the little things that make you feel appreciated, such as when a student was ill over the weekend and we were asked to go see her. While I am not yet a doctor and probably could not have done much for her, your belief in me makes me want to work harder so that you can continue believing in me

"This weekend really helped me out of my shell and I am so grateful. I was able to volunteer as a class representative when I would normally shy away. I was able to comfort a total stranger who ran past me crying. I went to see if she was okay and comforted her, making a new friend " .

" I would like to firstly congratulate you on a successful event this weekend.
I had loads of fun and alot of motivation, information and training that will help me in
all aspects of my studies and personal life.

Thank you so much for believing in me and trusting me with important aspects of the event this year.
It was my first time formally speaking infront of a crowd not to mention the High profile people that
were present at the Corporate Breakfast.

Thank you for putting me out there, for speaking to people on my behalf and for giving me a
platform to network and and connect myself.

I will use the contacts I got to my advantage and I’ve got my fingers crossed for a breakthrough."
