Little Jordan's Big Dreams

Little Jordan's Big Dreams

Posted by Vicky-Leandra Barnard | winners | Competition | Big September

Even though little Jordan has had a tough life she has risen above the challenges life has thrown at her and become an inspiration for us all. This is exactly the reason why she is the third winner of the LottoStar 947 Big September Bursary competition, where deserving individuals win R250,000 towards their education.

A Hard Worker

10-year-old Jordan, who will be turning 11 on 31 October, has started her own little business selling trinkets such as bookmarks and earrings in order to raise money so that she can get a better education. Her father passed away in 2012, and her mother (who is a mother of 3) has been juggling work and studying to provide for her family. This is what lead to Jordan taking initiative.

Jordan was brought into the 947 studio this past Friday, 6th October, on the pretense that the 947 team wanted to chat to her about the importance of being a young business owner. Her mother, grandmother, and brother joined her in the studio, believing that 947 was going to set up a stall for her at Primedia where she could sell her products to staff and listeners. But the truth was that she had R250,000 donated towards her education, courtesy of LottoStar.

A Big Dreamer

Jordan is a bright spark, coming first in district level at a science olympiad she had entered this year. After that experience, she realised she was amazed by science and wanted to go to a school that was centred on science. The young dreamer is hoping to use her education to become either the first female South African president, a doctor, or a businesswoman. Her strong ambition and big dreams are the reason she was our next chosen winner.

When LottoStar CEO Tasoulla Hadjigeorgiou suddenly arrived at the studio and broke the good news to Jordan and her family that she was the winner of the R250,000 bursary, there were smiles all around, and her mother proclaimed how proud she was of her daughter. Her family now knew that Jordan’s future was taken care of.
