A Mzansi woman has taken to her social media page to reflect on her challenging journey, which she embarked upon in the quest of bagging an academic qualification.
In the stunning woman’s images on Twitter, one of the photos shows her starting out on the journey when she had a baby. In the second snap, one could see the progress the young man has made in terms of development and growth as he stands next to his proud qualified mother.
Such an accomplishment for Dr Sinethemba Sidloyi, who goes by the name of @think_academics, has not gone unnoticed on social media pages.
Briefly News shot straight to the comments section to pick up the reactions from the new philosophy doctorate graduate.
"What a journey this was. Your son saw his mother fulfil all her dreams. Now he knows that he too is valid.”
"The young prof knows all mommy's teachers. He s slept in mommy's office. Been to mommy's meetings and conferences and meetings with supervisors. He knows library staff members so he had to close this door with mommy.”
“I feel the young man is a shareholder of the qualifications, congratulations.”
"Inspirational... Thinking of Amanda Black's 'Amazulu' music video when I see this. Ngiyakubongela sis.”
"Nothing puts a smile on the face like seeing a woman celebrating another woman's success.”
“I’m doing Honours and I want to quit every day, kunzima. I really admire people who can this shem... Mina today I’m tired shem. Congratulations sisi... Congratulations kakhulu nje.”
"Nothing is more sobering to one's true feeling until we reflect back on our past accomplishments, you then realise you're unstoppable. The gratification is so overwhelming and wonderfully emotional. Congratulations Dr Sidloyi.”
“No words can begin to describe this. All I can say is that this is beauty, this is power, this is strength, this is human spirit on some level only attained by few individuals.”
Briefly News reported that a local woman has inspired Mzansi with some serious throwback pictures. The PhD graduate has come a long way since her school uniform days but is definitely not embarrassed about her humble beginnings.
Twitter user @think_academics shared the sweet then and now snaps. In one image it's clear the uniformed little girl still has a lot to learn about self-confidence. In the next, it's clear the self-assured young woman is ready to take on the world.
