My name is Noela Darne Govender, I'm a 16 year old, grade 11 student. I strive to excel in my academic ability in hopes of obtaining a bursary to study veterinary sciences. I have a personal dream that I'm aiming to attain before I embark on my career as a vet. I have been accepted to attend the IPOP talent convection in Los Angeles. My mom finds it difficult to support my sister, a wits medical student, my grandmother who is a pensioner and myself. My dad suddenly passed 6yrs ago of a heart attack, being a widow with limited working experience leaves my mom with no funds to assist me with the costs for this trip. I humbly appeal to anyone who is able and willing to please help me reach the IPOP convection.
