22-year-old Fikile Cele was abandoned by her teen mom in a box outside a factory in Chatsworth, Durban when she was only just born. Instead of letting this shape her outlook on life, Cele is using the story of her life to motivate and push her towards her dream of becoming the next Miss SA.

Heading online, the beautiful young lady shared how she was abandoned in the box and later adopted by an Indian family when she was only two months old. Later on, her biological mom requested visitation rights but died when Cele was only 5 years old, resulting in Cele not having a good memory of her.
In a heartwarming Facebook post, Cele explains how she went through so much but was able to overcome it all.
“I learned that with God nothing is impossible. When you trust that where you are going is nothing compared to where you are currently, everything works out for your highest good. I'm here to tell you that it is okay to be different, okay to be you and that I am worth it and so are you.”
Many are inspired
Her many fans and followers were super moved by the touching post and had this to say about her hopeful story:
Shanice Govender said:
"You have my vote... what an inspiration to the young girls of South Africa, just shows that anyone can make something out of themselves, it's God's plan."
Steven Pillay said:
"You will always be a winner. God bless you."
More tear-jerkingly sweet reports
Briefly News also reported the young boy who had resided in bushes and eaten grass for meals is now a house owner. This is courtesy of the same humanitarian foundation named Afrimax that had paid him and his mum a visit in a video that went viral.
In their recent video to his village, they took him and the mum to the city for what they described as a surprise. In the heartwarming video shared on Instagram by @kingtundeednut, the mum couldn't believe her eyes as they were presented with a new well-furnished 3-bedroom bungalow and cash.
A cow was also gifted to them to help provide milk for the lad's consumption. Reacting to the developments, the mother of the disabled child said it was the happiest moment of their lives as they hadn't been stunned this way before.
