Itumeleng Mojanaga is from Ipelegeng near Schweizer-Reneke in the North West. He is a 2nd year Bcom Accounting (CA) student at the University of Cape Town. Itumeleng has been a top and consistent achiever since his first year in 2011. In the first semester he achieved a distinction of 77% in Macroeconomics. His hard work has since been acknowledged by the institution. He was not only invited to join the Golden Key Society, but he was also nominated and selected as the most consistent performer in his programme by the Commerce Faculty. Itumeleng has also been shortlisted for an interview for a bursary with a top accounting firm. REAP's Student Development Advisor is really proud of the progress this student has made from a shy and quiet first year boy in 2011 to a confident young man in 2012.

Having caring student supervisors who are always ready to listen, help and give advice where it is needed makes it easy to deal with any challenges that would otherwise negatively affect my academic work. Their support from my first day in the university until now has been great.
I thank REAP from the bottom of my heart for ensuring that my dream of furthering my studies in a university is being realised. My plans are to successfully complete my degree and practice as a professional social worker in my hometown, and I am looking forward to the joy and satisfaction that comes with playing a role in someone's progress and development in life through my social work career.
