Siphesihle enjoys dancing, and was a role model at her previous school in Swaziland. She is always willing to lend a helping hand. She is extremely passionate about her studies and was so excited when she was accepted to the De La Bat school in South Africa.
Siphesihle also strives to be a good role model to the younger students, both in demonstrating good behavior, but also in diligence and dedication to her studies. She has been working very hard this year at school and is looking forward to returning in January, where she will be starting 9th grade.
She has also found support in her friendships with fellow students Siyanda and Tandzile.
