Student Success: Helisiwe Mabunda Just Scored 92 Percent

Helisiwe Mabunda is a top Absa-sponsored Hazyview Digital Learning Centre student who says “anything is possible”. Once again, it’s the girls who are shining strong in the IT environment.

Helisiwe wanted to pursue a career in nursing, but as is so often the case, there were obstacles. Helisiwe is a single mother and there were financial restrictions. The HDLC “bridging year” was a great start, and I am thrilled to announce that Helisiwe recently pointed the International Computer Driving License Presentation module with 92 percent.

And that is just the beginning. Helisiwe is not going to let go of her dream and has committed to studying nursing part-time.

According to Helisiwe, “If you work hard, your’e focused and determined, anything is possible.”
