I am a 23-year-old "go getter" whose dreams are only at the beginning, my name is Lethabo Phathakge and I am proud to say that my tertiary education was funded by the Anglo Community scheme. Although I haven’t always known what I want to do, I have always known that I wanted to take my studies as far as I can, and Anglo was a great help in getting that process started. To me the Anglo Community Scheme was not just where my fees came from, it is also where my confidence was boosted and where I learnt that if I believe in myself internally then I will be able to physically start realizing my goals and that’s how strong the support system this initiative provides is.
I now hold an undergraduate degree in Strategic Communications from the university of Johannesburg and an Honours Degree in Linguistics from the University of the Western Cape. I am a reserved yet opinionated young lady who thrives in competitive environments. I love learning and trying new things and I am always looking for a new way to expose myself to all the greatness out there. I am currently a Digital Strategy Consultant working for a Digital Marketing agency in Johannesburg where I get to partake in the development of great marketing Strategies as well as service some cool B2B clients. I have also recently been admitted into the MA Linguistics programme at the University of the Western Cape and am excited to reach even greater heights not only in my professional career but also academically.
