A first-year student at the University of the Free State (UFS) is delighted that she will be able to pursue her dream of studying towards a BA degree in Psychology.

Phumla Mooi won a cash prize, which she has decided to spend on enrolling at the university. Mooi, from Bloemfontein, completed matric in 2016. She entered a competition by Hungry Lion Fast Food on Facebook.

“The competition asked what people had on their bucket list for December. I know they were expecting people to say things like skydiving and so on, but for me, my biggest December dream was simply to earn enough money to pay my university registration fees,” Mooi says. “I’m so thankful that I’m one of the two competition winners.”
