My name is Kelisha Pandaram. I have recently completed my degree at the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Westville Campus. I am an outgoing and personable leader and mentor that seeks to improve the lives of those around me from all socioeconomic backgrounds in the rainbow nation. I am a great listener and clear communicator as I am a proficient speaker and writer in more than one language, whether I am engaging with colleagues, academics, or interacting with stakeholders. I strongly consider myself to be an intellectual thinker and team player. I like to explore alternative solutions to problems, and I have an open mind about what will work best. My creativity has made me an effective team leader in various university projects as I am an individual who knows how to execute complex tasks and innovative solutions with precision.
I enjoy exposing myself to new information emanating from then business sector and educating myself on recent research in the fields of finance, marketing and management. I am currently part of an informal
student campaign at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, focusing on gender-based violence (GBV), which assists vulnerable and disadvantaged women from all races and socioeconomic backgrounds. I
also currently mentor and teach primary and high school learners with mental and learning disabilities. I enjoy volunteering at the Aryan Benevolent Home and Cheshire Home’s Soup Kitchens and assisting
with the preparation of meals for the vulnerable and elderly.
