What has been the most unexpected part of my experience as an African woman/student in the United States?
Hi! My name is Kabelo Makotoko, I was born and raised in a beautiful country called Lesotho. I am from a family of five, including my two siblings that I miss very much.
I am currently a Junior at Berea College, majoring in Accounting and Finance. I still wake up everyday and thank God for giving me such a huge opportunity and making my dream of studying in the United States come true! I am also very grateful for Africa's tomorrow, Berea College and my family and friends, I would not be where I am if it was not for all the genuine support I have received.
My goals are to become a Certified Public Accountant and own an Accounting firm in my country. Helping others has always been one of my greatest passions, it makes me happy as a person and I am hoping that my Accounting firm will help provide jobs for educated people in my country who struggle to find jobs after they graduate. I also hope to one day build a school for the blind and deaf in my country.
Some of my hobbies include reading, exercising and listening to old school music, haha. I also enjoy cooking and watching TV shows. One of my all time favorite TV show is "Friends," I have see the show so many times but it never fails to make me laugh!
