Yahnique Petersen making a difference

Yahnique Petersen, a Metallurgist at Minopex – Gamsberg Mine, participated in a career exhibition at Pofadder High School. A number of schools from the Khai-Ma district in the Northern Cape attended the exhibition.

Yahnique encouraged students to consider a career in metallurgy, the positive and negative aspects of the occupation, the required skills and also gave guidance on subject choices that will open the door to universities and colleges.

”Be a lifelong learner. You’re never too old, too smart or too experienced. Excellence comes from trying again and again but innovation is only possible by trying something new. Being great at both is incredibly hard but if you never try, you’ll never succeed.”
