“I will always feel blessed because I had a bursary that walked with me until I received my Honours degree.” These are the words of Shirley Baloyi who has been sponsored by Signa Trust.
This young woman’s amazing journey started in 2018 when she had to face the risk of becoming a drop-out and end her pharmacology dream. In her own words she said, “I am grateful that I got this bursary when I did, because not only did it support me, but it also fuelled my fire to make a success story out of myself.”
Shirley looks forward to a bright future, “I am now an intern for a multinational pharmaceutical company and that would not have been possible without my education.” She now holds an Honours degree in Pharmacology from the University of Pretoria, which is among the top scarce skills in our country. We wish Shirley all the best in her new career as she helps to change the lives of many others.
