I am Nontobeko Zuma. I am an enthusiastic, fun, approachable and adaptable young woman.
Before I attended Game Changers (A programme for young people between the ages of 18-24 that supports them with skills for the job market), I was a graduate looking for work experience and who lacked the financial resources to further my studies. I heard about Game Changers and applied immediately. During the application process I was called for a two day interview. Day two of the interview process was based on teamwork and creative thinking. Through the interview process and all the challenges, I was fortunate enough to be selected onto the programme.
Having been through the Game Changer programme, I currently support the WhizzKids United Girls Football Team as an administrator and liaise between players, management and the other teams. By being part of this team, I have acquired various skills, for example, planning for football matches, writing monthly reports, providing weekly feedback to management and booking and organising transport for game days. I am also at present attending driving lessons because I know that it would increase my chances of finding employment.
Going forward, I hope to learn as much as I can while being part of WhizzKids United. Game Changers helped me to identify skills relevant to the work that I am doing now.
