DRUM - - Ed's Note -

Gil­lian Malouw (Queen of the seas, 16 May) is truly an in­spi­ra­tion.

She is the first African woman in the coun­try, and on the con­ti­nent, to work on a sub­ma­rine and that is an in­cred­i­ble achievemen­t.

She’s an in­spi­ra­tion be­cause, not only did she ac­com­plish her goal of join­ing the navy, she’s also be­come an of­fi­cer, com­pleted a BA de­gree and she nav­i­gates sub­marines, all at age 28.

It just shows, if you set your heart and mind to a task, any­thing is pos­si­ble. LIZA MAKOLA, EMAIL
