Hey I’m Angelique I’m 18 years old. I had my baby girl on 6 months in my final matric exams. She was 3 months premature and was placed in Cape Town N1 City Netcare so I couldn’t finish my exams, because she’s my first priority and she needed me more than ever. It was a hard difficult time in my life i had to get through. I promised myself that no matter how hard it is i will go back and finished what i started. February this year i went back to re write my matric exams and i passed! And i want to thank God for making me the strong women i am today! <3
Turning 19 this year in December and I’m expecting a baby boy anytime this month and I’m still stressing about my matric exams however with young mom support and the support I’m getting from my boyfriend and parents I strongly believe that I will make it through to University next year. Thank you young mom support
I’m Robin, 20 years of age. I fell pregnant in 2010 while doing grade 10. I finished my grade 10 while pregnant and passed to grade 11. I gave birth to an adorable baby on the 9th of January 2011. I thank God for such supportive parents and family. Yes, i was on a downfall with my babys daddy but i thank God for best friends. I stayed at home till the 8th February 2011 and went back to school in grade 11 at Voortrekker High School in Kenilworth Cape Town. The teachers understood me through pregnancy and all. I passed to matric and in 2012 matriculated with a degree. Not too bad but i made it as a teen mom. It wasnt a easy path for me but i made it. Im now 20 years of age, my baby Saskia is 3 years old and me and her daddy is together and living the life of a happy family. Thank you God, my family and friends and teachers for their patience, love and care.
I am Thandile Siyonzana and I am 19 years old and had my baby when I was 18 years old on the 13th of July 2013, I finished my matric year in 2013. It was very hard having to deal with school work, being nauseous and always tired and sleepy, but because I wanted a good future for myself and my baby I pushed myself to study very hard and with the support I got from my parents, friends and teachers who were patient with me I made it. Now my baby Girl is 10 Months old and a busy bee, I’m glad I have her in my life because she have brought us very close as a family, she is a real blessing, we thank God for her life. Thank you for the opportunity to share my story.
My name is Abigail. Almost 6yrs ago,I found myself in matric, final year of school and then I found out I was pregnant. At first when I found out I was shocked, angry, frustrated,hurt,
Went to school cause the kids could see already and they were talking already, but I went back to school,during my June exams,I gave birth to a wonderful son, but the main thing that kept me pushing was because all the judging comments,gossiping,etc.
I said I wanna do it for my child and I wanna persevere towards all these remarks, after having my baby I went back to school as usual, attended extra classes, holiday classes, and at the end of the day when I had to get my results I passed with a Diploma….and I thank God for that because He kept me going and I persevered towards what I wanted.
Its hard to be on school and you get pregnant,but I later found out it was just all in God’s plan and that this is what’s happening in real life, God used me to see what teenage girls go through ,how they feel etc, but you learn from your mistakes but you can be successful as well when having a baby in matric….I hope my story can encourage young teenage moms to persevere towards what they want in life….God bless
