A proper education can open up so many doors for someone, but a lot of daily life events sometimes hinders a person's ability to study.
Whether it is having children or being the sole income provider of an household, sometimes there is just not enough time to pursue a tertiary education.
However, one young lady, with the Twitter handle @miss_andisa, was tired of waiting around for opportunities to find her.
So, she suck it up and started to pursue a qualification at Wits University, knowing it would be extremely difficult to juggle work and studies.
Now, one year later, she is the proud owner of a qualification. Taking to Twitter, she shared her story.
Her story inspired many, with tweeps congratulating her on the hard work, which certainly paid off.
Hey, and she did it while maintaining a perfect afro.
