4th LottoStar Bursary Winner – Precious Senyakanyaka

Precious Senyakanyaka, a 21-year-old who matriculated in 2014 from Sir Pierre Ryneveld High School in Kempton Park, was selected as the fourth winner in the LottoStar 947 Big September Bursary Competition. Precious has a dream to become a teacher and is passionate about education. She helps mark scripts for Shukumani Primary School in her spare time and started working at a company called Talk IP, as a connectivity liaison. However, her heart was still set on becoming a teacher.

She enrolled for a Bachelor of Education at UNISA in 2015, but only got to study 4 modules as she was unable to afford to carry on. LottoStar answered her wishes by presented her with a R250 000 bursary to carry on with her studies. Precious vowed to make us proud. LottoStar wishes you the best of luck and believes you will excel and make us proud.
