Fit for Life, Fit for Work was one of the most influential experiences of my life. I benefited from their leadership empowerment and the power of positive peer engagement. I was helped with self-confidence and a belief in our power to help and heal ourselves.
I feel more comfortable now with public speaking, making decisions and resolving conflict. I feel as though I can be a leader. Importantly, I made friends and have good memories of my time in the programme.
After I graduated from the Fit for Life, Fit for Work programme in 2015, F4LF4W paid for my registration fee at the University of Venda and I now hold a Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations.
After my university studies, I was placed in my first internship to acquire professional work experience, where I am currently working with management.
