“NSFAS helped me pay for my studies at university and now I am helping NSFAS, which is cool!”
My name is Nobby Mandla Mabale and I am 30 years old. I grew up and matriculated in Soweto at Thutolore Secondary School.
I pursued a Bachelor of Science Degree at Wits University and throughout my studies I received the bulk of my much needed financial help from NSFAS as my parents couldn’t afford to put me through university. At Wits I also received some academic scholarships awarded on merit and I was later awarded an all-expenses paid scholarship in Information and Communication Technology concepts and practices.
I am now part of the NSFAS Transformation Programme. I am working in the Deloitte Consulting team that is responsible for the development of the new core banking system on which NSFAS will administer all future student loans and bursaries from 2014 onwards. NSFAS helped me pay for my studies at university and now I am helping NSFAS, which is cool!
My inspiration comes from my desire to excel in life and an underlying passion and will to succeed fuels me.
