From an early age I understood what it meant when people say, “if you look good, you feel good”. So while growing up I always tried to make myself look good. This is why I chose the studies I am currently doing.
I have so enjoyed the beauty studies so far, as I was not only able to gain new knowledge and skills, but also to meet new people who have the same passion and goals as I do. In our country there are no guarantees of getting a job immediately after you leave school or college. But studying something that gives you a skill is an asset that can never be taken away from you.
My future goal is to be the first person to open a beauty spa business in my home township of Mdantsane. More and more people are wanting top quality nails, beauty and massages. This goal is going to take time while I gain all the skills necessary, but what I have learned so far has changed me and it is a stepping stone over my current challenges. I believe that with patience and hard work my goal can be achieved.
Thank you to all the Brockbank Education Fund donors for believing in us and our dreams.
