A glimpse into the lives of some Actuarial Science students
We are curious by human nature, and other's achievements make us feel a sense of happiness for their accomplishments and that the world is on a better path. We have followed the achievements of the first black South African accepted into the Actuarial Society of South Africa, Ranti Mothapo. Today we bring you two stories of two genuine individuals that have one thing in common, their choice to pursue Actuarial Science as a career.
Naparima College, San Fernando, has achieved a rare double-two President's Medals in a year. For Kevin Singh, his medal is for outstanding work at A'Levels, but it has been a long wait. Singh said he had been already studying actuarial science in Canada when he heard the news.
We take another look into the life of Kevin Wagner, a desk worker who make's it through the night studying his 900-page book about life insurance while faced with the possibility of fighting off terrorists.
