You know the saying: “There is always light at the end of the tunnel” and in my situation my Light is Studentdigz.
My name is Teboho Mofokeng a nineteen (19) year old student from Lawley currently studying at the University of Johannesburg.
Growing up I was always an academically inclined, who loved to study so completing my matric was a dream come true under my difficult circumstances. I always wanted to be an independent person so after completing my matric I knew I had to pursue my studies in higher education. Coming from a very disadvantaged background I knew that finance was always an issue but that didn’t stop me from pursuing my dreams.
Studentdigz was introduced to me by dearest friend Tshpang Sesogag he told me about how cool the place and my curiosity got the better of me and had to check out the place. When I arrived at Studentdigz I was amazed by what I saw, the place is exceptional. There is 24-hour security and fully furnished rooms, a free laundry and a transport to school.
Coming to the Studentdigz letting office I had nothing besides a letter from a social worker, my Identity document and a student card. I was taking a chance as I did not know that they offered accommodation bursaries, but when I met the friendly staff I had hope and faith that they were able to help me.
My situation was a sensitive one but the team at Studentdigz showed how much they actually care by offering me an accommodation bursary for the entire year.
Throughout every conscious effort there’s always a reward in place. Perseverance, persistency and being optimistic are the results of me being where I am today and this is thanks to Studentdigz.
Thank you to Studentdigz for believing in my dreams and helping me when no one else could.
