BPSF Mentor: Bhekisizwe Mkhatshwa

Reason for study law…
I chose to study law because everything that we do or use in our daily lives, even as miniscule as watching TV or walking on the side of the road, is governed by law(s); so my interest grew
out of wanting to know how such things are regulated.

On the BPSF
Words cannot describe how grateful I am towards the BPSF. They have supported me in every way a student can be supported. They are very encouraging and supportive of everything that I do, including my extra-curricular activities. Because of them, I am much wiser with regards to
my career options. I’m very grateful for my mentor Bheki, I could not have asked for a better mentor.He is very
helpful, very understanding and supportive.

Future plans…
As this is my final year, I am planning on pursuing articles for 2019 at a law firm in
Johannesburg so that by at least 2021, I can start practicing as an attorney.
