"I completed my matric in 2010. 2011 I got accepted at Cida City Campus to study for a Business Administration degree. I met friends who got too attached to tertiary fun life instead of books . 2013 on my final year I had 4 outstanding modules from the second year that I needed to complete before starting my final year first semester .
"In May 2013, my scholarship was terminated. I had no money to pay for my fees I had to go back home with so much disappointment and shame. Fast forward to 2018, I enrolled with Milpark to complete my degree, my Vodacom bursary paid for my fees.
