Ms. Myroniuk is passionate about education and her role in the front office in supporting both team members and the Mandela families. Maya Angelou said: "Seek patience and passion in equal amounts. Patience alone will not build the temple. Passion alone will destroy its walls."

Ms. Myroniuk states, "I am excited to be working at Nelson Mandela with a passionate team of educators that believe in this school and its scholars."
