Young African Lady bounces back after dropping out of school due to lack of money, wins Masters scholarship to Belgium university

A brilliant young Lady from South Africa named Trustee Mashego has overcome the challenges of lack of finance as she earns a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Mpumalanga in South Africa and won a Master’s scholarship to study in Belgium.

Trustee Mashego who earned her Bachelor’s degree in Agriculture narrated through her LinkedIn profile that she had lost funding for her university education in 2017 which prompted her to drop out.

According to her, she completed her High School education in 2015 and enrolled at university in 2016. Unfortunately, she lost her funding and had to drop out in 2017.

“In 2015 I matriculated from one of the best public secondary schools in Bushbuckridge, a small village in Mpumalanga. Started my first year as a university student in 2016 but ended up losing my funding in 2017 and dropping out of the institution at the end of that year,” she narrated.
