The friendship of two young learners from KwaMaphumulo in the north of KwaZulu-Natal, has seen them registering to further their studies at MUT. Bongeka Buthelezi and Nobuhle Mthiyane have enrolled for Marketing and Accounting, respectively. Both girls said they were happy with their decision to study at MUT. Their hard work paid off. More than 40 000 prospective students applied for the limited places at the University. To finally hold that student card which is proof that they are now bona fide students of the University brought big smiles upon their young faces.

The two met in Grade 10 at Vukile High School in KwaMaphumulo, and they put plans in place for their future together. They studied together during the hard Lockdown in 2020 and still managed to ace their matric. They plan to shape and own the future together. They have committed to helping each other with their studies and maintain friendship until they enter the workplace.

The two friends wish to one day make a difference in their community and encourage other learners to focus on their studies and make their parents proud. Nobuhle could not wait to go back to KwaMaphumulo and show her parents that she is finally a university student.
