My name is Atiyyah Isaacs and I live in Portland, Mitchell’s Plain. I attended Mondale High School and matriculated in 2015. I decided to pursue a degree in science, BSc Molecular Biology and Biotechnology at Stellenbosch University. Although my undergrad is in science research, I intend to pursue my postgrad in education. I found my passion for teaching and educating young minds as I do volunteer tutoring for children who cannot afford tutors. The Mitchell’s Plain Bursary and Role Model Trust is all about the community and giving back. If it wasn’t for the Trust encouraging its recipients to always give back to the community, I would never have found my passion.
