I would like to introduce myself Stefni Binneman age 17 and High School Head Girl at Sonneveld Akademie in Brakpan. My passion is fashion, I love to draw, create, and make people look good so that they can feel good. Since I started my career planning at school in Grade 4, I knew what I want to do when I am done with school. I wanted then and still today more than ever to become a professional fashion designer. Unfortunately, due to life and Covid-19 my parents financial plans took a bad turn and I realized that I had to play a part in my own future. My parents are always there for me an by younger brother no matter what and they will bend backwards to give us what we need and want in life but I don’t think it’s fair on them to carry the stress alone, so I decided in September 2020 to start my own photography business with just a normal gazebo and R100-00 loan from my parents to set up a photobooth at a local flea market. Less than I year later I was able to setup my own photo studio.

Getting enough customers is not always easy and my mom is helping me a lot with our own business venture, the dream is that my mom would work with me as she is helping me with marketing, finances and so much more already, I call mom my managing director already.

I am concerned that I will not save enough funds to go to the College of my choice which we already visited during the lock down in 2020, I felt at home when I walked in the door. The people were friendly and share my love for fashion.

The college of my choice is FEDISA – Sandton campus to study for a 3-year BA: Fashion Degree and after that end my studies with a Bachelor of Arts Honours in Fashion.

They do not give bursaries to first year students, which makes sense to see if a person really wants to study in the direction so I plan to ensure that I will make the criteria to qualify for a bursary from the 2nd year onwards.

Total tuition fees for the 1st year are R 103 267,00 that includes the Books, Kits and levies.

Extra costs that I will also have to make is to buy the correct sewing machine, overlocker an ensure that my laptop has the correct specifications and programs required for my studies.

I would like to ask the community, family, and friends to support and assist me in helping me to reach my dream career. If I get only a 1000 people to contribute a R100-00 each to my education, I know I will be able to plan for the rest of the requirements with my photography business.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to share my dream with everyone reading this article and for everyone helping me to achieve a dream come true!
