Tertiary institution: Centurion Academy

Field of study: Nature Management

My name is Yulynne Alexander, I used to live in Plettenberg Bay with my mother Renata and my stepfather Milan. I originally grew up in my grandparents’ 2-bedroom house with my grandparents, my mom, my aunt and cousin. My mom worked two jobs until I was in grade 2 and whilst at her day job, she met one of my godparents. I matriculated from Wittedrift High School in 2021, where I also met my now best friend of 12 years. I moved to Cape Town early in the year 2022 to start my studies. I'm currently studying Nature Management at Centurion Academy so I can one day become a botanist, mainly a forester, to help protect our environments.
