- A man shared how he triumphed over challenges to become a successful academic
- He has not forgotten where he comes from and recently helped another fellow village boy
- His act of kindness earned him a bursary
A man from a village in Limpopo has beaten the odds and achieved success. He then used his success to help others.
Wesley Komane was faced with problems from an early age. Upon matriculation, the young man had poor Maths and Science results. He decided to go back to school to upgrade his results.
He passed both Maths and Science on the third attempt and enrolled for a National Diploma in Analytical chemistry at Tshwane University of Technology.
His hardworking ethic paid off as he graduated in record time. He then pursued a degree in Chemistry and completed it. He is now studying towards his Master.
Earlier this year, Komane saw a young boy in need. The boy was sleeping in the toilets on campus as he had nowhere to sleep. The Masters student took it upon himself to help. He let the boy move in with him while he looked for help.
"It turned out that the boy has won a bursary from the department of water and sanitation but he did not know where their offices are based, I took [him] to their offices and upon our arrival the department told us that they have been trying to get hold of the boy but there was no luck".
Wesley's act of kindness earned him a full bursary to complete his Masters. This cover also involves accommodation for both the students.
