Zamekile Natacia Zitha – Chakaza Primary School


I was born on the 20th of June 1988 at Themba Hospital at Kabokweni. I live at Newscom trust with my father and my step mum. I have four siblings: 3 sisters and 1 brother. I have 1 daughter whom I have adopted. She is 6 years old going into grade R. My mother passed away when I was 8 years old. From then I lived with my grandparents at Zwelisha trust. My grandfather passed away in 2004 and that’s when I started living with my father.

I started my primary school at Chakaza primary school in 1993 and completed my matric at Fundinjobo High formerly known as Zwelisha High School. I furthered my studies at with Boston City Campus Nelspruit in 2007 until 2009 doing my HIV/AIDS counselling and management. In 2010 I registered at University of Limpompo doing psychology. I love travelling and music. At high school I was the chairperson of the debate team and a captain of the volleyball team. I’ve won so many debate competitions while in school and that made me feel great.

I currently work at Chakaza primary school as a youth facilitator under I love my job so much because it heals me at some point and I love helping children who are in need. I do a lot of projects in the school that I work at and in my church. Being a youth facilitator is a great opportunity for me since I’m looking forward to be a child psychologist one day. It helps to be able to notice people that need help and attention. This job has changed my life in a good way. I’m now able to smile and solve all my problems without any doubt and difficulty.

“I am always motivated and inspired all the time.  Even when times are tough I always know that God is with me all the way.”
