Young participant eager to further his studies

“Education is the key to success and with education the sky is the limit,” said Tandisile Xoshomba a fire fighter who has registered with PE College to further his studies.

Xoshomba is a young man from the Addo base in the Eastern Cape who joined the WoF family last year in February.

“I matriculated in 2014 and due to financial problems I could not go to College in 2015 that is why I had to get a job,” Xoshomba told WoFire News.

He said that getting a job at Working on Fire was a blessing as he managed to save money so that he can go back to school.

“I am going to do Sport Administration and I chose this course because I am an athlete who has been running since 2007 and I want to be a professional,” he said.

Xoshomba said in 5 years from now he sees himself as a professional athlete who will also be motivating young athletes to pursue their dreams and never let anything stop them.

The Regional Manager of the Addo Team, Thulani Myoli said Tandisile is a disciplined young man who is willing to learn and he wishes him all the best in his career. Xoshomba thanked Working on Fire as he believes if it was not because of WoF he would have not been able to get finances to further his studies.

“I would like to advise all fire fighters to use the little they get to improve their lives by going back to school because education is the key for better life,” he concluded.
