My name is Ntombekhaya Jakuja. I’m 19 years old living in Cape Town in a township calledNyanga. I was born here in Nyanga and I was raised here by my single mother, who I love very much. I did my matric last year in 2013 and I passed. Growing up I have faced a lot of challenges, but some amazing things have happened in my life. In 2011 I won the award of Highest Achiever in Physical Sciences. During my school years, before finishing my matric, I was involved in a group of photography as an activity after school. My mentor was a professional journalist. In ten years time I want to see myself owning my own business, highly educated, achieving my goals, and making sure that I make my mother proud in everything that I do.
