Question: How has the bursary given you access to quality education?

As a bursary recipient, access to quality education has been transformative. It’s provided financial support for tuition, books, and other essentials, allowing me to focus on learning without worrying about financial barriers. It’s also opened doors to opportunities like internships, which I was on last year. Now I’m a junior DBA in the organisation.

Question: How has your journey at BET Software been so far & why are you most appreciative for this opportunity?

My journey at BET Software has been incredible. Starting as a fresh graduate and growing into a Junior Software Developer has been invaluable. BET provided a stellar environment for my professional and personal growth, right out of varsity. Real-world projects expanded my understanding of software development. The supportive, collaborative culture shaped my career path greatly. I’m grateful for these experiences and lessons—they’ve set a solid foundation for my future with BET Software.
