Computer Engineering Student Receives Malegapuru W Makgoba Scholarship
Second year Computer Engineering student, Mr Ben Sapo, has been awarded the Malegapuru W Makgoba Scholarship.
Sapo says the scholarship will provide him with much needed relief from the financial burdens of tertiary education and allow him to focus on his studies.
Sapo has been fascinated with computers since an early age. ‘Computers have always been a passion of mine so I always knew I would go into that field. I specifically chose to do Computer Engineering because my brother did the degree and I saw the really cool projects he was involved in incorporating electronics with the programming. This inspired me to follow him and do the same degree as I saw that I would be able to build and programme my own designs,’ he said.
Sapo said Rabbi Schreiber was his role model and mentor, showing him how to be a truly good person and live a moral life.
The young student intends to go into research and development to assist in the "betterment of the community".
He describes himself as a religious person who is very driven and determined and puts in all his effort to finish tasks given to him.
