06 Dec 2016

We are excited to announce the winners of the IQ Academy Instagram Selfie Competition!

This competition, which ran between July and September was publicised on social media and was open to all registered IQ Academy students. Students were invited to enter by following IQ Academy on Instagram, taking a creative selfie with their IQ Academy textbooks, posting the selfie on Instagram and tagging IQ Academy.

Refilwe Moeketsi won the 1st prize of R5000 cash and Tanduxolo Mabudla the 2nd prize of R3000!

Refilwe is a 28-year-old Restaurant Manageress and is currently studying Office Administration through IQ Academy. She was so excited when we gave her the news of the win! “I would like to take this moment to thank you and your team. I am so over the moon with joy and contentment. I have never won anything this huge in my life and this is exactly what I need.” Refilwe is going to use the money to settle her water bill and her computer course fees. She is also going to take her family out to spoil them. She went on to say that “depending on a single income is not easy, especially when you are a parent and you want what is best for your family. I have been cutting costs as much as I can because I didn't want to enter the new year with last year’s debt, so this is a dream come true for me! The money has really changed my life in an amazing way! May the good Lord favour you and your team.”

Tanduxolo, a 23-year-old Picker/Receiver of Personnel, is studying Management Information Systems through IQ Academy. This is what he had to say about his win! “I'm so excited. When you told me that I had won, I just stopped what I was doing. I couldn’t believe I had actually won.” He is planning to use the money for a family gathering and will contribute to his aunt’s medical bills. “This has really changed my life and my family will be so proud of me. Thanks to you and the IQ Academy team.”
