#MyBostonStory – Precious Lebogang Hlaka



Meet our home grown sports champ, Precious Lebogang Hlaka. Precious studied sports management at Boston City Campus, Randburg in the year 2015/2016.

Precious loved being a student. “For me studying at Boston was so wonderful. I was advised to go there by Thomas, being a beneficiary at Afrika Tikkun centre Diepsloot and having attending their after-school programs.  I was involved in the sports program but more specifically the triathlon team. Being part of the sports team gave me the privileges of being selected to be part of the Tikkun triathlon relay team which went overseas. I was so fortunate to be part of the team that went to Germany and UK in the year 2014. During our travels we were also given a platform to present ourselves and our future plans careers going forth, and that’s where I expressed my passion for sports development. I wasn’t sure of where and how I would be able to further my knowledge in that department.

After all that traveling and engaging in programs in the centre, Thomas then stepped in more as my mentor. He advised me in furthering my academic path in sports at Boston. He highly recommended it, and that’s when I went ahead and applied for the sports management course.  I enjoyed every moment! I was mentored by the best student advisors, they were so helpful! Even until today they are still in contact with me. I am so very grateful, and glad that I took the decision to further my education at Boston.

I graduated in the year 2016. Not only did I get the best results, but also top student for the Sport management course with 4 A’s, due to the support I was given at the campus.

I obtained top results which I have never obtained in my high school years and for that I would like to thank Boston, as well as Afrika Tikkun!”
