I plan to take on an honours degree in business management at the university of the Western Cape. I am passionate about rural development and entrepreneurship in Africa. I do not know what the future holds but I know this is a significant direction as my journey continues.
Besides the education opportunity which the scholarship offers, I look forward to lasting interactions from young leaders across Africa. These leaders are diverse and excellent in their fields. I look forward to my leadership development and learning from these leaders.”
