Double celebration for Arena Park sisters

Nivarya Naidoo and Nerissa Naidoo have done their family and friends extremely proud.

Two beautiful and brilliant Arena Park sisters proved that dreams can be turned into reality after they both graduated from the University of KwaZulu-Natal at the Westville Campus, recently.

Dr Nerissa Naidoo (26) proudly graduated with a Doctoral Degree in Health Sciences – Anatomy and is now the Assistant Professor of Anatomy at a university in Dubai.

Dr Naidoo’s PhD thesis was based upon a clinico-anatomical investigation of the intrinsic and extrinsic factors of the shoulder region within the South African and Belgian population groups. With over 15 published articles and 25 conference presentations at both national and international platforms, the young woman has always dreamt of being a member of the medical fraternity.

Meanwhile, 23-year-old Nivarya Naidoo graduated with her Honours Degree in Biological Sciences and is currently studying towards her Masters in Environmental Sciences. The passionate woman has always been very fond of animals and nature and was thrilled when she completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Science at the end of year 2015. She is presently assessing the functional and ecological properties of a series of 12 wetlands in the Dundee region.

The dynamic duo feels that their journey into academia has just begun and attributed their success to consistency and commitment which they have shown.
