Success Through The Lens of Miss World South Africa, Thulisa Keyi
Miss World South Africa 2018, Thulisa Keyi, shares her passion for education, which, she says is the foundation of the success one wants
Speaking at the Cell C Girl media launch, 26-year-old Bcomm accounting graduate and charted accountant student, Thulisa Keyi shares why she’s using her platform to advocate for education for young South Africans:
I am passionate about education because it has had a tremendous impact on my life and it has afforded me many opportunities and advantages that I know every young person can attain as well. As a young girl from Mdansane, the second biggest township in South Africa I had my fair share of challenges and the best way I knew, early on, how to rise above them was through education. I worked very hard at school and got six distinctions in matric, which afforded me different scholarships. That is how I managed to get to the University of Cape Town. There I completed my Bcomm Accounting as well as my honours. In 2016 I moved to Johannesburg, where I am doing my articles with one of the ‘big four’ audit firms because I aim to be a charted accountant. I am passionate about education because it has shaped me to being the person that I am today. I always apply Nelson Mandela’s quote, which states, ‘Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.’ With that said, I understand the importance of having the right resources and support to help you achieve what you set your mind to. I advise every young girl to make use of the resources that the Cell C Girl platform has given them.
