Esona Mlanjana, 20 years from the Bluedowns branch. Received the top student for Computer Literacy bursary on the 2nd of December graduation ceremony.
As a result of financial issues, Esona had to leave her Paralegal Studies at the South African Law school with only 3 modules remaining. With a lot of time on her hands and a hunger for education, she kept passing the Silulo sales team in her area and enquired on the short courses offered. Both she and her mom agreed that she needed to try something different from the restrictive Law or Engineering route and she registered for Computer Literacy.
During her studies Esona notes the daily struggle to get out of bed and go into crowds because of mental health issues her biggest challenge. However, with a patient and approachable facilitator like Khanyisa, these classes became her happy place.
Esona also shares her mother’s support the whole journey, even with helping her practice at home. With her bursary she intends on pursuing Office Administration in 2023 and continuing with it as she enjoys it.
Changing lives one qualification at a time, Silulo Ulutho.
