Congratulations - Muhammed Bilaal Ismail!


Golden Key wants to congratulate Muhammed Bilaal Ismail for being named the winner of the Student Leader of the Year 2013!

We received high standard applications!

The Statement from the winner:

Bilaal.png"The University of KwaZulu-Natal chapter of the prestigious Golden Key International Honour Society has seen vibrant growth over the past few years. During this time, I had the privilege of working in a few key roles in the chapter, namely, Webmaster, Chapter President and Central President. I am immensely grateful to our fellow South African Chapters for their wonderful and influential Golden Key projects which had motivated me to overcome our challenges here. They had catalysed our team to fulfil the potential of our Golden Key chapter and try to make it one of the best in the country! Furthermore, I cannot underscore the immense value that each member and advisor has brought to our portfolio more firmly and even though our Chapter received two special recognition awards in 2013, we still have a vision to progress. The team will continue to go all-out in 2014!

Having said this, I am absolutely honoured to receive the Student Leader of the Year 2013 award. I see it not only as an epitomizing personal achievement, but also as a reflection of the success that the UKZN Golden Key Chapter has attained. By winning this award, I have proven to myself that I am a person who can lead further, encourage others and keep growing. I sincerely hope to continue this trend and one day become a guiding influence to better our community in every way. I wish to express my sincere appreciation and thank Golden Key for providing me with the opportunities to reach this point and for selecting me as the recipient of this esteemed award."
