I am Mogamat Tayb Majiet, an 18-year-old student from Manenberg. I live with both my parents and two younger siblings. I always try to set a good example for my siblings as they look up to me.
Manenberg is an impoverished area in the Athlone suburbs. Manenberg is infested with gangsters and drugs. Often, people my age are unmotivated to seek education and turn, instead, to gangsterism and drugs.
I am a rugby player and captain of my rugby team. I would like to improve my leadership abilities to make a positive difference in my area. I want to help people who are suffering from harsh, difficult life experiences and try to help alleviate poverty.
I intend to make a success of my life by working hard to attain the necessary knowledge to become an excellent entrepreneur and not another statistic of failure. I would also like to get involved with projects that empower communities and create job opportunities for people living in rural areas and other impoverished areas such as Manenberg.
I see myself as standing out in my community as a person who refuses to add to the statistics of drug users and gangsterism. I have seen how people's lives have been destroyed by gangsterism and drugs. As a humble student, I would want to see more young people seek knowledge and improve their standards of living.
I would like to complete my studies at TSiBA and perhaps study further to equip myself with the knowledge to start my own enterprise. I am passionate about learning and always eager to make positive change.
The trip to Germany will change my life considerably. It is an opportunity of a life time. I am truly grateful for the experience as I am sure there will be many wonderful opportunities for me to broaden my horizon and enrich my values and understanding.
