Proud Dad

There are moments to brag - and today is one of them.
Because my daughter Lisa graduated today, with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Cape Town.

Over the past few years she has struggled with a hormonal disorder that drained all her energy. She often struggled to concentrate, and even more often needed to sleep when she got back from her lectures. But she persevered. And I am proud of her persistence.

Congratulations to Lisa. We stood in the same place yesterday with son Matthew (B.Sc.).

Congratulations! It would be a wonderful accomplishment by itself, but with the challenges she faced, I'm even more impressed.
Best wishes for her in the future! With persistence like that, I'm sure she'll do great things.
