“I might be a product of the past, but I’m not a victim of the future."

GMA follow-up: Princess Matabula gets the surprise of a lifetime
GMA follow-up: Princess Matabula gets the surprise of a lifetime

BACKGROUND: Princess Mathebula is one of the 8 Eldoradopark Matric girls, which Good Morning Angels will be assisting to have a fabulous matric farewell on 11 December 2018. However, she is also the top Mathematics and Physical Science Learner in Eldorado Park, despite being from a single income family from Soweto, struggling to make ends meet. Her motto: “I might be a product of the past, but I’m not a victim of the future.

 

I am Princess Mathebula, a 17 year old matriculant. I live with my Parents and two siblings in Protea Glen. My father is the breadwinner in our family as my mother is unemployed. It is rather difficult to get everything I need as funds are limited. Irrespective of the circumstance I have never been in a position not to give my best. I believe in life if that should you want to see a change in society that change have to start with you. Being the top Mathematics and Physical Science Learner in Eldorado Park has encouraged me to never settle for mediocre results. Putting my best foot forward will help me achieve the success I strive for. “The distance between a dream and a reality is called action”. The former President Mr. Nelson Mandela said that “Through Education you can change the World”. I might be a product of the past, but I’m not a victim of the future. I am very optimistic about what my future holds.

OFFER FROM FUCHS SA:

 

I want to compliment you and the Good Morning Angels team for the wonderful work you do in our community. You touch many peoples hearts every Wednesday morning.

 

I was listening to your show this morning where Liezel & Martin were interviewing some of the matric girls from her old school. I was moved by the story of one of the young woman, I think her name is Princess Matabula. Princess mentioned that she would like to study mechanical engineering. FUCHS offers bursaries to a number of students each year and Mechanical Engineering is a field that we support. We would like to try and help her if we can and consider her for a bursary. We will start interviewing potential recipients soon. Can you assist in putting us in contact with her?

 

REGARDS,
