My siblings and I grew up as latchkey kids. My mother (a domestic worker) works herself to exhaustion to put a roof over our heads, food on the table and clothes on our backs. After graduating from high school in 2014, I decided to look for a job to earn some money in hopes of paying for my own tertiary fees, but unfortunately, the little that I get is from hand to mouth.
I am planning on studying a Bachelor in Commerce in Entrepreneurship at MANCOSA.
I am determined to be the first in my family to go to college in order to change the devastating situation at home. Another driving force is the desire to prove everyone who has ever spoken down to me wrong. There has always been a fire inside of me and I won’t let my situation, try to put me out.
*Where possible, funds raised will be transferred directly to MANCOSA*
