Born in Bochum and raised in Polokwane, Limpopo, Ramusi completed her schooling at the Northern Academy Secondary School. Says Ramusi: “I’m very excited to have been selected as a CampusKey mentor. My responsibilities include offering my time and support towards the students, their mental wellness and health issues, as well as our awesome initiatives for them. CampusKey has created the ideal environment for students. Varsity comes with loads of social and academic pressures and we all need to know that we’re not alone and that there are people who care about and will support us.”
Ramusi has been at CampusKey since last year and says it has been the best experience. “CampusKey doesn’t only give you a roof over your head, but also a positive environment conducive to studying. It offers the best security features so you don’t need to worry about your safety. All you need to do is focus on your academics. It’s also a great social environment which every student needs as part of their varsity journey. Overall, CampusKey has the best facilities in the country for students.”
She hopes to make a difference during her mentorship year. “If we look at the nation’s high statistics of depression, suicide and mental illness, I believe that I’m part of the change. I’d like to facilitate a support system so that no student will ever feel left out and receives the support and attention they need. At the end of this year, every student who leaves should have had the experience of a lifetime and a huge smile on their faces, wanting to come back the following year.”
Ramusi approaches life and her studies with determination. “I believe there is no easy way to out. The workload keeps coming and my time management skills have really helped a lot. I’ve managed to follow a balanced lifestyle and my motto of less procrastination and more prioritising definitely helped,” she adds with a smile.
Her greatest achievement thus far is having been selected as a CampusKey mentor. Her goals for 2019? “Academically I’ll keep on excelling as I want to graduate Cum Laude at the end of my course. I also really want to make the best of the privilege and honour awarded to me as a CampusKey mentor,” she concludes.
While focused on offering ‘comfort, convenience and community’, CampusKey is the ideal home-away-from-home with its various locations throughout South Africa, including Bloemfontein, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Potchefstroom, Pretoria and Stellenbosch.
