Songezo Qubungu Computer lab and learner assistant
My name is Songezo Qubungu known as Steve. I matriculated in 2016 at Richard Varha and went to the University of Fort Hare in 2017 to further my studies, where I studied bachelor of commerce. In 2018 I had to dropout because of family matters. I am from a family of three, my mother who is blind, my little brother who is doing grade 12 this year, and myself. I am responsible for the family with the help of my mom’s disability grant so I had to look for a job to take care of my family. When Covid19 started in South Africa things went south for me because I was starting to have plans of going back to school and get my degree. Fortunately the Presidential Youth Program was introduced to help teachers and learners in schools and I was lucky to find a job at Richard Varha in 2021 until today. I am a person who loves his family and love to help other people, as a result in 2017 I started a youth co-operative which involved poultry and farming where I wanted my peers to do something and not abuse drugs and alcohol.
