My internship blog took place at Edendale hospital ward 1B2 first floor. While I was doing internship I meant knew people from different places especially eldest. I did enjoy working with aging people because they always gave me a good advice every day. Fist time it was hard to communicate with them but when times goes on everything goes on track.

I was assisting them by collecting medication, off duties, collecting stationary, doing copies and work general. I did enjoy everything I even improve my skills and I have gain more experience.
What I have leant while I was doing my internship is to be calm, patient and communication skill wasn’t my strongest points but by implementing organization skill and time management boost my communication skills.

When I never thought I can able to work under burnt people because I know myself that I’m a coward but everything possible by believing to myself and work hard even though there is some challenges but I did everything okay.

During the month of September I had an opportunity to go and have an internship placement at Hilton Durban Hotel. I have worked in the following three departments Rainbow Terrence Restaurant; Business Center; Engineering/ Maintenance department.

At the Rainbow Terrence Restaurant I have done these duties assistant bar man; waiter; looking after a buffet making sure that it is clean and the dishes are always full.

At the Business center I have done the following duties administration work, waiter, doing the setups for meetings.

At the Maintenance department I have done the electricity; and plumber work.

This is what I have gained at Hilton Durban Hotel. I would also like to thank the WhizzKids United for giving us this huge opportunity we really appreciate it, this is what we call the beginning of a journey leading to success.

Out in the big world trying to fit in but hard to reach the pace but the journey has to start somewhere. Emotions all over the place seek for a new breeze to freshen up my thoughts of my work. As I was placed in Edendale hospital in Operation Theatre Department I experienced much more within the administrator industry. Dealing with filing, organising, answering calls, NSI forms, doing off duties etc. The skills that I have gained will benefit me in the future. Having that vibe of being in a job environment gave me a clue on how to handle professional challenges when it happens that I come across them. I am so grateful for this opportunity and I thank WhizzKids United for making a difference in my life.

Game Changers Internship - Edendale Hospital (Part VII)
posted by Nozipho Dlamini on 5 November 2014

I have been part of Game Changers for a year now. I have been given many skills like being organised, planning before, computer and communicating. They did not just give us those skills but given a chance to see how much we learnt by being placed in a working environment. I was given a chance to be an intern at Edendale Hospital, Human Resource Department in Employee Assistant Programme office. I was working with a lady called Mrs Khumalo. I was basically doing admin work which includes filing, photocopying and binding, documents filling, handling transport hiring, collecting Jim attendance and filing it according to dates. This internship was just a month but I learnt a lot. I was really scared of office work,never really thought I could do it, but through that internship I learnt to believe in myself that if I put my heart in something I can make I happen. But mostly WhizzKids made thing possible for me.

Game Changers Internship - University of KwaZulu-Natal (Part VI)
posted by Zandile Jaca on 3 November 2014

The first moment I stepped inside the gates of the University of KwaZulu-Natal it felt like my dream has came true but in a changed way because I was getting there for the diverse reason I thought I will be there for tertiary education but it turned out in a different way than I expected. Now I understand why people say life is unpredictable, it amazed several people that a person in my age was an intern in the university what shocked them further is that I matriculated last year they thought it was impossible. But what they didn’t know is that with Game Changers is possible, having to work closely with masters students which are doing Gender, Religion and Health it really motivated me study in life. The craziest moments I experience while I was there it was when the students were striking because I had to hide in the office the whole day, because they thought I look like a student. All in all it was a great experience....
