Aspirations: Bogosi wants to study Tourism Geography.
Kebatlamang Bogosi was born in a small village called Make Bole in the North West Province of South Africa; he is an only child. Bogosi is a single-parent orphan. He has a mother, who works on a farm, but he was raised by his Grandmother. The little money that Bogosi’s mother made from her job allowed Bogosi to attend primary school, even though he did not live with her. Bogosi only knows his mother; his family is not willing to share any information about his father with Bogosi, not even his name. Not knowing his father has been very painful for Bogosi. RTC founders and directors, Neil and Lesego, met Bogosi in 2012 and were struck by his strength and diligence. He has attended Edendale Independent School since 2013, and will graduate this year as a matric. He is applying to study tourism and hospitality management at several South African universities.
Interview with Bogosi
Who inspires you?
I am inspired by one of my aunts; she always tells me to take education seriously and advises me on the challenges I come across in life.
What’s the best thing about being a part of RTC?
The best thing about being with RTC is that we have teachers who help us with studies and look after us. They are my close family and always have time for me when I want to talk to them.
Which famous person would you like to meet and why?
I would like to meet a gospel artist called Sechaba because of his childhood and background. He grew up suffering and struggling, but he worked hard to become successful. I would like to know how he has achieved everything he has and how he became the world famous artist that he is.
