BTE Student Stories


BTE Site: Tswelopele, South Africa

About Me:

My name is Mathapelo Mafafo and I am from Gauteng Province in South Africa. I live in a very busy town called Tembisa, which has a large population. It is a disadvantaged environment, but the many diverse people all have humanity. I am very observant and I like challenges. I love learning, especially about new things.

Interests & Hobbies:

I am interested in book-collecting. I enjoy reading novels. I also love agricultural science. Discovering facts about the human body fascinates me, and I love nature. I also enjoy jogging and watching movies in my free time.

Your BTE Experience:

Group work tasks have always been the best. My favorite experiences are when everyone was given the chance to express their way of thinking and we had to work through challenges together.

Looking Forward to ABTS:

I am looking forward to networking with other ambassadors of my age from different BTE sites and learning from other young leaders. I look forward to developing new skills from the experience.

ABTS starts October 25! Follow the event here.
