Tertiary Institution: Varsity College

Field of study: Bed Foundation Phase

My name is Matuschka Oliphant and I grew up in Kranshoek, Plettenberg bay. I went to Kranshoek Primary for seven years and then to Wittedrift High for five years, where I graduated in 2021. I lived with my mom and then in grade 7, she very sadly passed on. I then moved to live with my aunt for 4 years and in my matric year I moved in with my sister. In 2022 I started studying teaching (foundation phase) at Varsity College in Port Elizabeth, which is a 4-year course. My goal after graduating is to be the best teacher a learner could ask for. I also wish to make my mom proud because I know she really wanted what's best for me.
