I am Dumisani Mthembu, currently doing my final year in Medicine at the University of Pretoria. I will be forever grateful to Discovery for the contribution towards my university studies through Umthombo.
I come from a disadvantaged background, and no family member would have been able to support me financially. I had no hope of studying, but Umthombo has lifted the burden of having to stress over financial difficulties.
The funding did not only assist me but will assist my community as I will be the first resident to have such a prestigious qualification.
Discovery’s kind contribution has brought me this far, and every year during the registration period, I sit back and reflect on how lucky I am to have received a bursary that covers my tuition, accommodation and food allowance. I look forward to becoming a Discovery member in the future.
