Yolisa is from Gugulethu and one of the recipients of our Hillsong Africa Scholarship. Her plan was to go a high school in her local community but after applying by faith for the Hillsong Africa scholarship and winning it her life changed dramatically.
In her community of Gugulethu it was difficult to learn and get a good education because of drugs , violence and alcohol being a big factor in the community . But now Yolisa is at Reddam High School where education is stable and of a higher quality.
Yolisa starts her mornings very early and gets home late in the afternoon . She has much homework to complete prior to that but she says she enjoys it and is happy at her school.
Yolisa has big plans and aspirations to become a Chartered Accountant or an Auditor for Mercedes to help those around her and to become a Kingdom Builder.
