Marvin September’s standard advice to anyone is: “First get a foot in the door, find your desired position and then get the qualifications you need to get you there. And don’t underestimate your own ability.”
Marvin was appointed the branch manager for PEP Home Claremont in his final semester of completing his National Certificate N6 in Financial Management at False Bay TVET College in 2019.
He is currently the Stocktake Clerk at PEP Stores Head Office and studying toward his BCom in Financial Management degree at MANCOSA.
Marvin was a top achiever during his time at the College and enjoyed his days on campus. A people’s person, Marvin helps his colleagues, neighbours and community in any way that he can, even assisting others with NSFAS bursary applications. He believes that all is possible, and we can achieve what we put our minds to.
Circumstances should not decide our future, but our determination to overcome makes the victory so much more satisfying.
