Botho University continues to be at the heart of empowering the girl child and women hence on the 20th January 2022, BU launched the Girls for Girls Movement to empower female students at the university. Leading the exciting movement is a mentor and BU employee Phatsimo Mosimanegape who made sure the session was warm and fun for the girls.
The session was a safe space for the girls to be vulnerable, and they shared what makes them tick: some indicated that they loved to sing, knew how to crack great jokes and loved laughing. For the first session, the cohort was joined by Malebogo Makhale as a guest speaker. Makhale is a legal professional and is passionate about working with people to become the best version of themselves.
Schaffranek says she jumped on the opportunity to come to Botho University because she loves travelling and the adventure that comes with getting to know new cultures and languages. She further notes that she knew right away that she would like to do an exchange semester at the beginning of her studies. She looks forward to exploring what Botswana and Botho University have to offer, gaining more insight into the education system, and making new friends around the campus.
