Golden Key is happy to introduce Bontle Mathabi, one of Golden Key’s 2021 Undergrad Achievement Award winners. Bontle studies an honors BSc Audiology program from the University of Cape Town and will be graduating in December of 2022.

“I chose a career in the Health Sciences because I have always wanted to help people,” Bontle says. “Audiology is a very underdeveloped profession in my home country of Zimbabwe. It is more often than not seen as a luxury than a necessity, and my aim was to change that perspective. I chose Audiology to impart a change.”

Bontle plans to practice audiology upon graduation.

“Hearing and balance is a crucial part of our day-to-day interactions with different individuals, and thus I aim to use my degree to help restore these to people who may have lost it,” Bontle reveals. “I would like to practice as an audiologist while also offering these services to our underprivileged communities that may otherwise not have afforded them. I would like to create more awareness on the importance of ear health.”

Bontle is excited to be a Golden Key member and receive this award.

“I remember jumping around my room when I received the e-mail inviting me to be a member of Golden Key,” Bontle explains. “And now, a year later, I am jumping around the same room upon receiving the 2021 undergraduate achievement award from Golden Key.”

Bontle is highly engaged with Golden Key and is looking forward to being more involved in 2022.

“Having served the University of Cape Town Chapter as a service director this year has nurtured my love for service,” Bontle shares. “It has grown me into a kind and compassionate individual who seeks to lend a helping hand, wherever and whenever possible. I look forward to more growth and new experiences as co-president of the chapter in 2022.”

Bontle is very thankful for her family’s support.

“My heartfelt appreciation to my family for their support in all my endeavors and for believing in me in times when I doubted myself,” Bontle mentions. “They are the reason I am the woman I am today, and for that, I am grateful. I hope this is a testament that your hard work has not gone in vain. The scholarship will go a long way in easing financial pressure off my family as I head into my final year.”

Bontle is very thankful for receiving this award.

“It is an absolute honor to be a recipient of this award,” Bontle says. “It feels surreal, and I am immensely grateful to Golden Key International Honor Society to have awarded me this golden opportunity. This serves as encouragement to continue working hard and strengthen my commitment to serving the community at large. I am humbled by this recognition and hope to inspire those around me to give their best in whatever they do.”

Thank you for being a part of the Golden Key family, Bontle; we wish you the best of luck as you finish your degree!
