My name is sarifa Mabunda and I was born in Mozambique in 1989...i am a first born at home.I came to South Africa in 2000 during flood. I was one of those people who were getting help in helicopters.by that time my mother was divorced with my father so we went to stay with my mother’s sister in Limpopo(Tzaneen) where my mom sold tomatoes and onions at street to support me and my siblings, she immediately took me and my siblings to school where I started in grade 3 at Tito Mboweni primary school,I Matriculated in 2009 and I was doing commerce.in 2010 because of seeing other kids going to school I then went to do HRM at a private college in pretoria but that collage turned out to be a scam and my mother had already paid all fees.so I had to go back home since she didn't have money anymore to take me to a college or varsity.
in 2013 I got a job as an Admin clerk at a primary school where I have studies at (TITO MBOWENI),then the contract ended ,in 2014 April I got another job at POLOKWANE as a Receptionist and resigned in December the very same year due to the way my manager used to treat me. she was my mothers friend so she treated me badly because she knew where I came from.
Why Financial Management N6
in 2015 I decided to do something about my future, my mother needed someone to help her to support us and I knew I couldn't do anything without education. I then went to TSHWANE NORTH COLLEGE in Pretoria central to study financial management ,I had always been passionate about working with numbers and since my mother had taught me how to sell fruits on the street ,it made me to fall in love with numbers even more and my dream was to open a super market for her one day. That pushed me to work so hard at school and making sure that I never forget where I am going or where I come from., I Finished my N6 in 2017.
How I Got My Internship
A friend of mine told me about outex ,GW connect ,while I was doing my N5, I then registered and they called me to finish up my profile ,I did that in February 2018 and on March they called to say that they have shortlisted me and I had to go for an Interview at BIDVEST CATERING SERVICE in centurion. I went there for the interview and I passed and got the Internship.
