"It has helped me move my life from “better to best”."

My name is Vernesa Debrah Mnguni and I am 21 years old. I first began attending the Centre in 2010. The Bokamoso Centre has played an important role in my life.

The staff and youth at the Centre have encouraged and supported me to get involved in different things like the drama group and music activities. In the auditions for the annual performing arts tour, I was selected to be part of the troupe. At home, I became the first person to come to the United States.

The Centre has helped me get many opportunities. It has helped me move my life from “better to best”.It has helped me move from home to school. Bokamoso means so much to me. It helps me manage life. I have learned how to handle issues in different ways and deal with people more effectively.
