"Their belief kept me going"

"My family is an important part of my life and their belief in me makes me want to prove to myself that I can do anything and that everything is possible."

What it means to them

Responding to a question about what graduation means to her and her family, Moteoli had this to say:

"Graduation to me and my family means the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. It's time for me to take responsibility for all that life has created for me."

Words of a wise graduate

When asked what advice she had for other young South Africans who have hopes of one day becoming graduates, Moteoli says that they should be relentless in their pursuit of reaching their goals:

“Don’t give up! Even if your goals seem unattainable, keep going and your tenacity will help you reach your dreams.”

A world of opportunities

While many South African hopefuls don't have much faith in the South African job market, things are looking up for Moteoli, who is currently doing an Engen graduate programme that is helping her gain all the necessary skills to equip her for a successful future.

Other success stories

Briefly News also reported that the day of graduation is one of the major milestones for any family, but for Chantelle Solomons and her daughter, it wasn't quite as clear-cut as that.

In a touching Facebook post, Chantelle revealed why it was a bittersweet day and the extent of her daughter's achievement. Her daughter, Chanrique Tobey, graduated from the University of the Western Cape on Monday and qualified as a teacher.

Despite the financial and psychological challenges, Chanrique became the first of the grandchildren to graduate. The single mother revealed that the momentous occasion was somewhat tarnished as the family were denied the chance to experience the usual ceremony.
