I’m Angela Cupido and I attended Woodlands Secondary School. I’m a third-year student, studying SPFET B ED (teaching) at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT). I did not have a bursary when I started my first year. This made the first few months at university very difficult, because I was worried about my fees. Luckily the Mitchells Plain Bursary and Role Model Trust gave me an opportunity. I can truly say if it wasn’t for the Trust, I would not have been able to study. After I obtain my degree, I will apply at a school in Mitchell’s Plain and do my honours part-time. I want to work in Mitchells Plain to show children whose parents cannot afford university fees, that there are people out there who are willing to assist you in achieving your dreams.
