He as the very first person from his school to excel in the Olympiad, not least of all because it was the first time they entered.

“I was so surprised, but very proud,” he told the SA Jewish Report. “After meeting all the wonderful people at the SAIPA Gala Dinner, I am sure it will stand me in good stead in my future career.”

Adam is clear he would love to be involved in the financial world, “making a difference to the lives of as many people as possible”. However, next year he will be focusing on more spiritual studies as he heads for a yeshiva in Israel. Thereafter he will be back to further his studies.

He said he found the tests challenging, but “felt it was a wonderful opportunity to compete against schools from all over the country”.

Of his success in the Olympiad, he said: “The school was very excited and my accountancy teacher, Mr Van Den Berg, was very proud to see my hard work and dedication paying off.”
