Claudia du Plessis Level 4 IT student was thrilled when she received a SMS from the Community College organizers informing her that she was selected to study in the United States of America. Claudia says since level 2 she made it her goal to fight for this opportunity. The news came in the middle of the summer holidays which made the holiday even better. This youngster knows what she wants as it shows in her passing all level 4 subjects and obtaining a distinction in one of them.
Part of the programme is that Claudia had to do an English exam and undergo a medical test which all went well. Family and friends of Claudia support her fully as this young lass prepares to explore the future. Claudia maintains "turn your negatives into positives", that's how she did it!
Both students are excited to pack their bags and ready to leave in July 2013.
