An alumnus is a graduate or a former of an academic institution whom has completed theirs studies.
When I was asked to author a piece on what it is like to be an alumnus, I felt honoured of being granted an opportunity of providing such a prestigious services. I then took a walk down a memory lane of my years as a Tsogo learner. I remembered how proud and blessed I used to feel by being a part of a school which was the best public school in the province, how I used to feel that my world was an oyster- full of endless opportunities; but I also remembered how trapped I would feel as I couldn’t reach the stars due to the lack of ‘know how?’ or maybe also because I did not have the right tools and words of wisdom to get to that place especially from those who have left before me.
