Neyata Daniel

 

Neyata Daniel (18) has been attending Harare International School since 2011 he was in the middle of sixth grade. Neyata is from Eritrea, however he was born in Windhoek, Namibia. He lived in Eritrea for 10 years, then moved to Sierra Leone for two years and then finally moved to Zimbabwe where he has lived for six years so far.

Although he has not attended ISSEA, Neyata enjoys playing football, badminton, table tennis, and basketball, as well as going to the gym. A lesser-known fact about him is that he enjoys writing poetry. Neyata is involved with the Harare Children’s Home, and Mabvuku Orphanage where he helps out with fundraisers like the football tournament that was held earlier this year, and teaching the children mathematics on the weekends.

Neyata has applied to The Hague University of Applied Sciences, Rotterdam University, and Stenden University of Applied Science where he hopes to study either business administration or international business and management studies.

 

His quote is – enjoy life and stay positive, remember all the negative phases in your life, toss them in the bin, move on and aim for greatness. They don’t want you to win, show them you have.

 

 

Sipho Simwaka

Sipho has been part of Harare International School for almost six years since joining us in 2011. He has greatly contributed to the school community with various CAS projects, such as Harare Children’s Home and Mabvuku. Their goal is to take care of children that live in a less privileged way or even lost family members through accidents or illness. Sipho has proudly led the school’s tennis team with his strong playing abilities (and serves) over the past years. However, unfortunately due to his IB exams he could not take part in ISSEA this year to show off his skills.

 

As Sipho says he loves the school for its “different types of activities as a community because it is different from anywhere I have been. They both involve team building, collaboration and it is very exciting.” But at the same time he is not convinced by some of the school’s facilities, such as the toilets and tennis courts, which he thinks “are not up to standard, also a reason why ISSEA Tennis was not conducted here.”

 

“No pain no gain” is Sipho’s motto when going through an IB exam. “I look up to this quote because it is the foundation of life. If you do not push yourself to an extent that is nearly unbearable, then achieving what you desire is less likely to happen.” His favorite wrestler is John Cena, whose motivation is to never give up. This is something that Sipho also greatly values and has used it as an impulse throughout his school career.

 

Sipho is extremely keen to make his parents smile and proud on the day he will receive his IB diploma, the moment he has been working up to for the past twelve years. He is not sure yet what and where he wants to study, possibly in the US or at a tennis academy in the UK. However, directly after school Sipho is taking a gap year, therefore he will have plenty of time to think about his decision and also practice some tennis.

 

 

Kahle Ekholm

 

Kahle Ekholm has been a part of the HIS community for nearly 3 years. He has been a part of the track and field team for two years. During his time on the team, Kahle has won numerous ISSEA medals. Kahle’s favorite teacher is Mr McCauley because “he is so chill and laid back”. After graduating, Kahle hopes to get accepted into the Naval Academy and start his journey of becoming a US marine. As a back up plan, Kahle has applied to other universities in the US and has already received two acceptances.

As a final remark, the one stereotypical college kid thing Kahle wants to do when he reaches university is wear shades when it’s dark.

 

Taona Tagwirei

 

Taona Tagwirei  is a senior at HIS and has been attending the school for the past 9 years. In that time he has made the school and the people in it his home. He enjoys different sports such as basketball and volleyball, but his passion is making and producing music (new album dropping June 26th).  Taona is looking to go to university and study business and economics but is currently focusing on finishing high school. He hopes to follow in his father’s footsteps in running the family business. Taona is valued member of the HIS family and even though we are all sad to see him go we wish him the best in graduating and his adventures after high school. Its been great Taona, thanks for the M’s man, you will be missed.
