I am a 24 year old female with a passion to study, i studied 4 years in a university of technology and acquired a Bachelor in Technology in Quantity Surveying in 2017, that was all my parents could afford. I have since been limited in getting jobs as most companies require an Honors Qualification which is what I have applied and have been accepted for at one of the top universities in South Africa (University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg). My parents are unfortunately currently both unemployed and cannot afford to pay my funds which is what inspired me to apply for funding through this platform.
The construction industry in South Africa is going through a tough time where in we face limited job opportunities, and opportunities that are there barely pay enough to sustain a person. Studying further would really help me in acquiring a job either in the construction industry or in pursuing working as a professional in the university( the journey of becoming a lecturer).
In my Four years of studying my Bachelor, I am proud to say that I never repeated a subject, that I how hard I work! I dedicate 2020 as a year of achieving myHonors in Quantity Surveying and I will do it on record time, because I have no room for failure (I can’t afford to fail). I push myself on the motto that says, “if I cannot do it, then it can’t be done.” Meaning that the only thing I can’t achieve is what is deemed impossible.
