|1) GETTING INTO SHAPE
From the first presentation that THEA VAN WESTHUIZEN introduced SHAPE, I knew I had interest in the programme I was quite reluctant to find out or even apply, as I thought I will not stand a chance of being SHAPE’s young entrepreneur. Nevertheless I was determined to give it a try; the night before registration closed I applied for the scholarship. I knew it was one opportunity that I couldn’t let go off, it’s something I always looked forward to. As I signed my application form I felt as if I was quarter mile into discovering my potential and working towards my goal of becoming an entrepreneur. After submitting my application form, I informed my family. Their response was quite motivating; after all I understood that this was a stepping stone to achieving my dreams.
I felt really honoured to see my name under SHAPE’s shortlist. It was exciting to boast about the fact that I was one of the 120 names that were shortlisted. The big question was “Will I make it to be part of SHAPE’s 60 scholarship achievers?”. Surprisingly I did ;(….( tears of joy). CONGRATULATIONS Fatz!!!
