My name is Thandiwe Gonya , I am 29 years old and I am living in Estcourt. I have got Social Auxiliary worker Certificate. I am here at Isibani Organisation for voluntary work, I am working together with Xolile Khoza also the Social Auxiliary Worker who is permanently working at Isibani. I enjoy working here because I am passionate about helping other people, especially those who can’t help themselves. This organization is more based on changing people’s lives and helping them solve different kinds of problems. I am always willing to go an extra mile in serving other people with humility. The Isibani organisation to me is like is a shoulder for community to cry on. They are always opening their hands to help everybody!!!!!
I like to be challenged by the new things in my life because that gives me the opportunity to learn. I also like to see my work done, even if i have been given homework to do and if it is needed by a specific time; I make sure that I do it and submit it on time. I really don’t want to be late or delayed. I was born to serve not to be served, I like to take a stand and mostly I do; I like doing things rather than waiting for others to do it for me. When I see people getting the help they need, to see smiles on their faces, to me it feels like I’m receiving my salary, it really feels so good. I also don’t like to fail and when I’m doing something I work very hard to succeed.
When someone tells me a sad story, a very sad one, I can get too emotional and sometimes end up crying too!!
THE BEST INDEX TO A PERSON’S CHARACTER IS HOW HE TREATS THOSE WHO CAN’T DO HIM ANY GOODAND WHO CAN’T FIGHT BACK.
