A TWELVE-YEAR JOURNEY

By Spakes Xapile | General Manager

After a 12-year journey with United Through Sport, Dr. Bronwyn has achieved her dream of graduating as a medical doctor, and is currently completing her community service. Reflecting on her journey, Bronwyn shared, “We are allowed to make five choices, and then get placed at one of the hospitals of our choice for our community service period. My parents would love for me to come back to Gqeberha. They are very proud of me.”

Bronwyn joined our Junior School of Excellence (now the Girls & Boys Unite programmes) in 2012 (launched with seed funding from GlobalGiving), when she was just 12 years old, becoming one of the first participants in the programme. Recognised for her exceptional sporting and academic abilities, she progressed to the Senior School of Excellence (now, the Aspiring Adolescence Programme) and received a scholarship at Pearson High School where she achieved an impressive four distinctions in her final year. “United Through Sport gave me such an amazing opportunity, allowing me to attend a school such as Pearson. This made me realise that I am capable of following my dreams and becoming a medical doctor,” said Bronwyn. Continuing as a participant in our Youth Rising programme, Bronwyn received funding for her MBChB degree at Free State University in Bloemfontein, South Africa, a journey of over 650km (about a 7-hour drive) from her hometown, Gqeberha.

Bronwyn becomes our first medical doctor graduate from our programmes. We are immensely proud and credit this achievement to her hard work and the generosity of our community of supporters. Bronwyn can now continue on her journey of becoming a change maker in her own community and continue to upliift her famliy and the people around her.

“UNITED THROUGH SPORT GAVE ME SUCH AN AMAZING OPPORTUNITY... MADE ME REALISE THAT I AM CAPABLE OF FOLLOWING MY DREAMS AND BECOMING A MEDICAL DOCTOR.” Dr. Bronwyn
