My name is Sibusile Sinothando Lamula, I am a 4th-year Pharmacy student from Ulundi in KwaZulu-Natal. I would like to thank Umthombo for the opportunity that was awarded to me, enabling me to pursue my dream of becoming a Pharmacist one day.
My mother is the sole breadwinner in my family and sometimes has to support my extended family members with the little that she has. With that said, she would not have been able to afford to pay for my University fees.
I will be forever grateful for Anglo American together with the Umthobo Youth Development Foundation. I no longer have to worry about who will pay for my tuition and accommodation fees, including all of the study material that I need.
I also receive a monthly food allowance and a book allowance at the beginning of each year without fail. The foundation has made my school life a very easy and pleasant experience.
