I began my academic career in a small city formerly known as Witbank (Emalahleni) where I attended at Tasbet Primary School, then moved to Hoerskool Patriot where I did part of my high schooling - towards the end, I moved to another small town, Standerton, where I matriculated. It was during my stay in Standerton that I encountered Anglo American Thermal Coal, that secured a future for me that initially seemed blur. It was through their means to fund my goals that my dreams of becoming a qualified nursed were realised, through the University of Pretoria, where I later (2018) graduated.
During my years as a nursing student, Anglo American Thermal Coal provided me with the peace of mind of never needing it worry about finances (everything was taken care of), the only responsibility I had was to ensure that I performed well academically. Apart from being well taken care of financially, the semester visits meant a great deal to me, they played a huge role in my tertiary years, they served as a reminder that I wasn't alone in my academic journey. I received the best support in that regard from my sponsors.
Upon the completion of my studies, I did my community service as a qualified professional nurse at Tembisa Hospital in the east of Johannesburg. I am currently employed at a Non-Profitable Organisational that specializes in the treatment of HIV/TB. I am highly grateful to Anglo American Thermal Coal for securing my future.
