As a final-year student at the University of Witwatersrand, Noreen Mutavhatsindi was inspired to start Phindulo Tutoring to help learners improve their grades. As a 10th grader, Noreen recalls struggling with Mathematics and Science. Now she doesn’t see these subjects as difficult. Her resilience helped her to power through and today she finds herself in her final year of a Chemistry degree. Noreen is a motivated young leader whose leadership qualities have led her to become the incumbent chairperson for the students’ residence hall. Her leadership skills also led to her being nominated for the Wits student leadership award.
