Ridhwaanah Khan: Before entering into this field of study, I was an introvert, but the subject of marketing has brought me out of my shell and given me the self confidence that I require in order to excel in every aspect. My passion towards marketing as a subject as well as a career is evident in my semester results. As a third year BCom Marketing Management student at the University of Johannesburg, I believe that I should be selected for the SAMRA Annual Conference 2016 Student Guide and ESOMAR Foundation Scholarship as I am a dedicated and hard working individual. I strongly believe in the independence of women and there is no better way to gain independence then by securing an excellent education and building up a strong career path. I always strive to give off my best in every task or challenge that I face. I believe that I can make a difference in the lives of people by sharing my knowledge and skills in a creative and constructive manner. This opportunity will provide me the opportunity to not only prove myself and abilities but to make my mentors proud too.
Nicolin Mamuya: I am a 3rd year Bcom Marketing management student studying at the University of Johannesburg and my name is Nicolin Byansy Mamuya. I am a hardworking, driven and self-motivated young lady who one day hopes to be a successful Marketing Manager, leader and entrepreneur. The art of marketing is quite stimulating, hence influencing my determination for success in the field. Woman empowerment is a very important aspect to me and is something I would like to aspire in. I am not fortunate enough to come from a wealthy family which means I fully comprehend the significance of working hard to make it in life. My CV proves my lack of work experience however, I am open to responsibility and I remain committed to what I set out to achieve. It would be an honour to be awarded this opportunity as a very important step in my overall career development.

My leadership qualities have enabled me to tutor 2nd year Marketing to approximately 150 students on a weekly basis. I am a Mentor to 7 1st year students. This confirms that I have good communication and presentation skills. Should I be granted this prestigious opportunity it will enable me to fulfil my passion for Marketing and open doors both locally and internationally to pursue a career in this field. I feel honoured that I have been granted this chance.
