I am 24 years old, moved to Lakeside a year ago, I am married, living with my husband.
When I was in my second year, my parents divorced and soon after my father, the sole provider for our family moved out.
I am the first to access tertiary education from both my mother and father’s side of the family and I will be the first of all my cousins to graduate with a tertiary qualification.
A higher education qualification will mean a great deal for me and my family. Two years ago I embarked on a mission and started with the Higher Certificate in Community Counselling knowing very well my end goal would be a degree in Psychology, I remained determined and continued with my Honours in the BPsych Equivalent Programme.
Thus far I have surpassed my dreams and still continuing to do so.
