The CPUT master’s graduate overcame various hurdles

The young woman explains that finances were one of the biggest issues she faced on her road to academic excellence:

“From my Bachelor of Technology to my master's Degree, I have had to self-fund my education, and to this day, I still owe the institution a substantial amount of money.
“Additionally, I face the same challenges that many black women encounter in academia. As a black female, I am not exempt from these challenges. It's a reality that we often have put in extra effort to gain recognition, even though working tirelessly doesn't guarantee that we will be acknowledged for our skills, experience, and the quality of our work.”

The Eastern Cape woman wants to inspire other ladies

Lisa notes that she would love to obtain her doctoral qualification and eventually become a rated professor.
