According to the institution, Moonasar has always pushed herself to exceed, from being the student head of the IIE Faculty of Science and Technology to securing a graduate developer position at Derivco.

“During my final year, Derivco was present at one of the Career Fairs hosted by the Career Centre on campus. I actively engaged with them during which they provided information about their graduate programme. Derivco had also hosted a few guest lectures on campus which provided me with context about the company, and I was inspired. Without hesitation, I applied for the graduate programme as The IIE’s Varsity College Westville had empowered me with insight and skills to embrace the working world and its challenges,” said Moonasar.

The transition from tertiary education into the working world has been successful for Moonasar as her lecturers went into detail about how certain things from the learning material would be adapted. During her studies, she also focused on developing the skills required for the world of work. She says that her Work Integrated Learning (WIL) presentations, where she worked in a team, played a vital role in this.

She explains that this developed her communication skills as she had to adjust to other team members who had different work methods. “Now that I am a part of the dynamic team at Derivco, my future aspirations are to become a successful software engineer,” concluded Moonasar.

When asked who inspired her the most, Moonasar responded: “Definitely my mom and sister. My mom recently achieved her PhD, and my sister is doing her MBA, and watching them work hard really motivated me to work hard, as well.”
