My name is Lyle Brown and I am 18-years old. I live in Strandfontein and attended Mondale High School where I matriculated in 2017. I am in my first year at the University of Cape Town studying towards a Bachelor of Social Sciences degree. My intention is to complete a post graduate degree in Law. The bursary that I receive from the Mitchell’s Plain Bursary and Role Model Trust came as a lifesaver. It removed so much stress and I can focus on my studies and not worry about how my fees will be paid. A huge burden has been lifted from my parents’ shoulders as well. The bursary has also given me an opportunity to meet highly respected people such as Mr Trevor Manuel Jeremy Michaels and many others. My plan for the future is to complete my degree and get involved in legal matters and assist those that cannot afford legal advice. I also intend to plough back into the MPBRMT to ensure that other disadvantaged students are given support and funding to further their studies. I want to ensure that they get the same support, and more, that I am receiving from the MPBRMT.
