I am Mcvay, the new VSA intern, and I have the following to say about myself. I am a intern for the technical support at this organisation. I provide technical and network problem resolution to by performing a question diagnosis while guiding users through step-by-step solutions. Solutions include, but are not limited to, resolving username and password problems, uninstalling/reinstalling basic software applications, verifying proper hardware and software set up, assisting with navigating around application menus and troubleshooting email issues. Support will be provided by clearly communicating technical solutions in a user-friendly, professional manner. I will perform related work as required.
As a boy I grew up exposed to a world filled with possibilities and opportunities. I realized that at the age of 12, I was elected at the St. Mary’s Primary school as a Class Monitor (2004), why? Because I grew up exposed to a world filled with possibilities and opportunities… well that’s not the only reason I could possibly give. I excelled in mathematics and English, and proved myself to be obedient and just me. It turned out being you can really make you become something. Ever since then… onwards I’ve been a ‘leader’ my entire life. At Mary Waters High I was Prefect in 2007, Class Rep in 2008, 2009 and 2010 and Tutor for lower grades at 2011 and finally Head-boy of the school in 2012. And right now, I’m a Youth Leader at the Seventh Day Adventist Church. And right there I know… who I am called to be.
I call my family the half-a-dozen family. We are six. My gracefully kind and caring mother (Florence) always with a smile on her face that no one can avoid; my optimistic father (Geoffrey), with a parallel vision for each day he does something or not. My elderly brother (Lincoln), who struggles to accept poverty as part of his life, instead he does something about that to better his life. My best buddy and twin brother (Mc Lean), who is partly similar to whom I am, but is uniquely determined in discerning what is good or wrong. So I get advice from him every now and then. My little sister (Natasha), a teenager full of questions and explorations in the present life. And then there’s me and NO I’m not the last born, I just thought I put myself last; you know what they say ‘family comes first’. We are welcoming and a very Christ centred family.
I believe that what makes different from others is not what I have BUT what I can do with what I have. I have a very merciful God, supportive family and friends, so I use what they can offer me and make the best of it. I was in love with visual art… used to draw and paint but my father had a PC (computer), when I was still 7 years of age. Ever since then I familiarized myself with this kind of technology, I loved it, for what it can do… way before discovering my secondary interest in cellphones. I think of myself as difficult person when one comes to know me deeply, yet I’m open to everyone. I like the colour blue, it make me calm down and think clearly. I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian, a diet which I’m comfortable with now for almost 7 years. So I found the opportunity to be healthy and think clearly for most of my days.
I recently joined the SANBS (South African National Blood Service) at the year 2013, having in mind that I was born into a world filled with possibilities and opportunities. So I took the opportunity to have at least some good deed to offer to the world that instead of taking life let me give life. That does not make me perfect of course, neither does it make me good… but ich versuche (I’m trying) my best at all times, even when it’s not necessary.
There are of course possibilities that can discourage me along my way, I will gladly accept them. And yes I will feel hurt, but you heard what they say ‘what doesn’t kill you make you stronger’.
After passing my matric, I took a course at the college of Grahamstown known EMC (EastCape Midlands College) year 2013-2014, did the Human Resource Management Diploma, I qualified for N4 and N5 national certificates, and now I currently seeking experience in what made me different all my life. What I’m used doing every day, with the absence of low shading. The exploring of the world of technology and having to execute some of the skills and knowledge of being a leader half my life. Having said all this I have some expectations up my sleeve. I don’t ask for my but I expect to have a communal/ mutual relationship with my colleagues, acquire the knowledge and experience I’m determined to learn throughout the course of this work. Last but not least I would expect to achieve the goals and objectives of the institution I work for.
What makes me different from others? Is that the above said is only the beginning about me.
