Mrs Charné Viljoen

I am a committed and hardworking individual, who started out studying towards being an animal scientist but developed an increasing interest in agronomy. I am now doing a MSc degree in agronomy and am looking forward to start my career in the agricultural sector.

I try to maintain a balanced lifestyle between work and my sport hobbies. I am an adventurous and well adapted person who likes a challenge. I enjoy being involved in various projects/ societies as I believe it is a manner of ensuring personal growth. I am a reliable person with good communication skills. My opinion is that mutual respect is key to a good working environment. A happy, motivated student pursuing a definite purpose in life.
