I was born on the 3 August 1995 in Limpopo and attended primary and part of my high school there. I then relocated to Cape Town to finish my high school. I am very interested in the safety of women and children – it’s something I worry about in my everyday life, and I try to help where I can. My hobbies are researching about the matters that society faces and to find out a different view on the issues at hand.

I matriculated in 2012 from Glendale Secondary School. I was then accepted at the University of Cape Town for a Bachelor of Social Sciences. I’m currently in my third year, majoring in Sociology, Gender Studies and Social Development. After my graduation I would love to work on advocating for the elderly, women and children’s rights – in my view are the most vulnerable groups.

The MPBRMT really helped me to fulfil my dream of studying at UCT, since I couldn’t afford the family contribution necessary. I no longer stress about my finances, which allows me to focus on my academic work without any distraction. If it wasn’t for this financial assistance I would not have made it this far – thus I work even harder to never disappoint or let such an opportunity vanish.

In the future I would like to ensure that those students like me, who dream, are helped financially, mentoring them and helping them succeed in life and in their careers – just like the MPBRMT has done for me. In summary, I would love to give back to the community – especially to disadvantaged children.
