The FASSET bursary provided me a great opportunity to advance my studies in 2018, after completing my undergraduate diploma in Accountancy in 2017 I had a goal of studying further towards an advance diploma in Accountancy. FASSET provided me with funding and that goal is finally in the process of being achieved, this has been a great opportunity for me as I previously did not have funding to complete my qualification.
The Magaliesburg life skills course was a great experience, I had the opportunity to go the Gauteng province for the first time and it was also my first-time experience being on an airplane. The life skills course informed us on how to prepare and what to expect in work environment. I learnt personal branding and how to advertise and promote myself to recruiters, I learnt how to handle my personal finances, and also had the opportunity to meet students from other universities and shared experiences and tips on coping at university and building careers for ourselves.
