A group of children are honouring a new graduate in the family with the most distinguished praise, giving him the graduation ceremony he never had right there in the family yard. The sweet moment was captured on video and has since gone viral.
@Master_vRama first shared the touching video:
"UNIVERSITY OF VENDA STUDENT. THIS ONE TAKES THE AWARD," he captioned the post along with a few boom emojis.
In the video, the little munchkins gather around in praise as the young man arrives fully decked out in his graduation cap and gown. The cuties stand on podiums made of empty cartons, awarding their role model with his certificate and graduation sash.
Social media users were impressed by the young man and acknowledged his ability to inspire all the children gathered in his honour. Many remarked that he was encouraging them to attain their own similar achievements one day.

Man graduates after 8 years at university, encourages others to never give up
In more graduation news, Briefly News previously reported that a local graduate is certainly proving it's never too late to turn things around after finally completing his BSc degree in Food Science and Technology. Dakalo Muluvhu's inspirational story was shared by popular student forum, Varsity World.
Heading to Facebook, the determined young man detailed his continued struggles with academic disappointment and his financial struggles. It took him eight long years but Muluvhu got through it.
"Matriculated in 2011 with a diploma. Decided to repeat Grade 12 in 2012 because I got rejected by all varsities that I applied to. 2013 I enrolled at the University of Venda in Food Science and Technology. It took me 8 years to finish it because I repeated some of my modules 3 to 4 times," he added.
The young man went on to get a little personal, hoping others would find encouragement in knowing that if he got through the dark times then so could they.
"The was a time I was depressed and wanting to quit but told myself to soldier on, that time I had no sponsor, my parents were paying for the fees. 2021 here I am, completed my BSc in Food Science and Technology with a distinction on my research. Moral of the story... Never give up on dreams and goals,'' he ended the lovely post.
Dakalo Muluvhu has definitely inspired the youth of Mzansi with his story. Check out some of their sweet comments below:
