A matriculant who passed with distinction, Phila Mbuyisa says the road to success has been difficult.
“There was a lot of work to do and a lot of paperwork to read at home. Because my mother worked on the street, her work brought in a small income. The cents she earned there were enough to feed her four children. That made it difficult for her to help me with other school needs that required the parent of the child to hit the pack, ”said Phila.
He said nothing helped him other than studying hard.
“We would go in at 06:30 in the morning and leave at 14:45. We come back at 17:30, with our teachers until we rest at 20:00 when the teachers go home. Most of the time we were left alone and continued reading until 22:30, ”said Phila.
She said she felt indescribably happy as she graduated because she was beginning to see the future of her future, and the home environment was changing for the better.
“I want to be a doctor. I have applied to three universities, namely UKZN, Walter Sisulu and Stellenbosch but they have not said whether they will take me. But my dream is to study, get a job and change my home environment, ”said Phila.
Phila's mother, Nelisiwe Nsele (49), said she was moved to tears when she thought of Phila's hard work.
“This child has studied hard and I can grasp it with my teeth. Most of the time I didn't have any money when I needed school supplies. Because he is a respectful child who does not hide his hard work, much of it is done for his teachers. This money, which they also needed to do homework, came from them. Even the uniform was bought by them, ”said Ms Nsele.
