The Tassle Was Worth The Hassle

The Tassle Was Worth The Hassle

A testimonial from recent graduate, Leyla van Greuning

Today I graduated with a degree: Bachelor of Commerce in Management Marketing from Boston City Campus, which I am so proud to say I funded myself!

Story time!

In 2017, I won a bursary to study at Boston City Campus for a year when I won Miss Million Dollar hosted by Henley and Valria. I completed my Higher Certificate in Marketing Practices in 2019 and enjoyed it so much that I decided to do my degree through Boston too.

There were many sleepless nights, tears, feelings of being overwhelmed, and loads of coffee, but it was SO worth it!

Mommy, I honestly could not have done this without you. Thank you for always being there for me and supporting and motivating me throughout the three years. Bringing me coffee, cake, food, tea, chocolate, Red Bull when I was studying and keeping quiet in the background while I was writing exams. I appreciate it more than you know. I am so grateful and blessed to have you as my momma!

To Hanlery Bouwer and Valria Ferreira, thank you for such a prestigious prize, introducing me to Boston City Campus and having a hand in my tertiary education journey.

And to everybody else who supported me on my journey, thank you for the words of wisdom and encouragement. It has always meant the world to me and definitely made it a little easier.
