I felt immense feelings of gratitude, when I received the news of the funding to my student account on feenix.org. I also felt a bit of relief, because my mother will not have to take out yet another loan to pay for my tuition fees. Lastly, I felt motivated to complete my degree with high marks, to make my investors proud.
This donation means the world to me, because now I can study for exams with ease, knowing my tuition fees are taken care of. When I pass, I will not have to wait for my degree, but I will obtain it with my peers, because my fees will be paid off. Lastly, I can start my career without the burden of tuition debt on my shoulders.
I am motivated by people, seeing them suffer hurts me to the core. I will use every skill, knowledge or talent I have to try to assist people in any way shape or form. For example, I will use my accounting degree to educate people on how to prepare their financial statements in a faithful manner, which in turn will help sustain their businesses for generations to come.
I am a sports fanatic; my hobbies revolve around sports. My sporting heroes, like Lebron James and Cristiano Ronaldo, have built healthy habits that contribute significantly to their performance. Habits like, consistent exercise, meditation, reading novels, and positive affirmations have found their way into my lifestyle and are my main habits/hobbies. Successful completion of my postgraduate degree, with high marks is what I see for myself for the rest of the year. Then after, I will be working in Cape Town doing my first-year articles at KPMG.
As I had mentioned in my biography on my Feenix profile, I am forever indebted to my community as they took care of me from my infant days. My plan is to assist my community to lead a healthier lifestyle, through education about the benefits of exercise, healthy diet, and a quiet mind. Not only education, but also access to facilities that will contribute to a healthier lifestyle.
If I had to meet my funders’, I would say to them, “Thank you, thank you and thank you”, as I have nothing but immense gratitude in my heart for them, writes Cutin Ndala, a postgraduate student in Accounting at Stellenbosch University.
Thanks to your generous donation, Cutin will be graduating in December 2021.

***Are you looking for ways to give back this Festive Season? How about gifting a Matie student the gift of an education? You can now help pay off his or her student debt, and it’s a lot easier than shopping for gifts in-store or online.
We know that the Matie community’s desire to give the gift of an education is nothing new. However, as student debt increasingly becomes the norm for most university students, we know that corporations and individuals are looking for easier ways to relieve university costs and to get rid of student debt.
If you wish to donate and ease the burden of student debt, and help more students like Cutin, visit Feenix.org where you will be able to support an individual student or donate to the overall #Action4Inclusion campaign.
All funds raised are paid directly to SU.
