Tertiary institution: Nelson Mandela University   

Field of study: 3 Year Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Psychology

Dezire is one of two siblings in the Born in Africa program.  She joined Born in Africa when she was in Kranshoek Primary in Gr 3, which has given her the advantage of enabling her to complete so many of the programs and activities we offered over the years.  This certainly benefited her now as she had to start her course online from home in 2021.  A little unusual for a first-year student who studies through Born in Africa.  2022 brought a bit of relief, as Dezire could finally attend campus in Port Elizabeth and experience the real student life! Dezire attended Wittedrift High and was also awarded her high school bursary through our organisation to do so because of her academic excellence.  We believe that Dez is going to become an excellent Psychologist as she has incredible listening skills and is also a brilliant empath.  We are thrilled to be supporting her on this journey!
