My name is Tshepiso Modupe, I am 2nd-year Anthropology student looking to move from an campus residence, to a more private accommodation off-campus.
I have social anxiety and bipolar II, which tend to have me experiencing manic episodes and depression in my room for days on end. Having a roommate, and being required to comply to residence obligations on a daily basis seriously interferes with my learning. I have found that the episodes also affect my attention span and ability to study. As a result, I have decided to attempt to move to a place where I can have more independence and refocus on my wellbeing.
A deposit for a nearby accommodation is R6400 (around $400), and rent is R3200 (around $200). My family does not have a lot of money and cannot help me, however- I am on a bursary which will pay for half of my rent. The other half I will manage as I am also a painter and photographer.
Any assistance, of any amount, will be greatly appreciated and utilized accordingly.
