Due to some circumstances at home my father supports a family consisting of 11 members, which is a burden to him financially to keep everything in place and also manage paying for my fees. I am applying for this funding to help decrease the financial load at home and also an opportunity for myself to get sponsored, secure my future.
I have obtained an award to be in the top 10 in formatics 1A in the university of Johannesburg, also obtain several awards in High school for best performance. I finished some online courses for programming in Java, C#, Java script and also Python. I worked in a old age home for 2 years during school holidays and received a certificate of Appreciation from the organisation.
My strength is that I am a hard worker and Self oriented, I am disciplined and I’m collaborative always preferred to work in groups to perform a task. My weakness is that I am sometimes selfish and Believe I can solve problems on my won, It works at some situations , but in many cases I need the help of others to overcome situations beyond my capabilities or control.
Since I was young I had no other interest but to stay indoors and play video games to point where I become interested in how they are made . That made me to do some research and I found out that games are made through programming. Programming can also differ, digging deeper made me realise that my interests are in technology. It all come together when I started programming on my own trying to make simple games. I then decide to study computer science and software engineering and use that to change the world.
I can Programming in few Languages which are C++,C# , Java , Python, Java Script and VB.net even thought I don’t have enough experience but I have enough knowledge in syntax of each language.
All i need is human kindness for me to progress in life thank you.
