“Growing up in a township, Khayelitsha, younger I never dreamed I would go to university, let alone travel across the world. Success was not something I could relate to and certainly not something I aspired to.

The day I set foot in TSiBA, my whole world changed - I discovered untapped potential buried inside me all along. For the first time I was encouraged to dare to dream big. I was taught with the right attitude and hard work I could become whatever I wanted to be in life regardless of my background.
It wasn’t all plain sailing. I struggled and failed maths a number of times.. But with help from TSiBA’s dedicated staff and lecturers, hard work and determination, I eventually passed maths with flying colours.

After I graduated I was awarded a Kofi Annan Scholarship to study towards my Master’s Degree in Finance at the prestigious Business School Lausanne (BSL) in Geneva, Switzerland - true testimony that failure doesn’t mean the game is over, it just means try gain.

And just when I thought things couldn’t get any better, they did! One of the world’s biggest auditing firms, Ernest & Young in Geneva, invited me to do my articles to become a Chartered Accountant in 2015. 

When I return to South Africa, I cannot wait to continue sharing my story and journey with fellow young South Africans and instil proactivity into them to take control of their lives and to realize that their future is in their hands, not the government, parents nor school. With the right attitude they can reach their highest potential regardless of their backgrounds. If there’s at least one person inspired by my story then it’s worth sharing.”
