Here’s How Yvonne Chaka Chaka Plans To Go Head On With Education. A woman that fits many titles in South Africa Yvonne Chaka Chaka has announced the news that she will be pursuing her own studies in Public Health at one of the U.S.A top colleges as proof of her commitment to the importance of education.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE recently, Yvonne said that she was also leading by example by applying to study at two top schools in America Harvard & John Hopkins.
“Education plays a special role in my life. I mean, I continued studying. I am applying to do my public health (degree) at either Harvard or John Hopkins (in Baltimore, Maryland). I don’t want to talk about it too much because if I have to drop out, I will be miserable,” she said with a laugh.
Yvonne was recently honoured with a honorary doctorate degree in law (LLD) from Rhodes University. She had received a honorary degree from UKZN in 2012.
“I couldn’t go to Rhodes (to attend the graduation ceremony) because I was in Senegal. So they had a special ceremony for me in Johannesburg. It was quite humbling. I don’t make music for accolades. I do it because if I don’t do it, who will? I am just trying to do my bit.”
