Musawenkosa Zenzile is a South African student who graduated with 8 distinctions and yet all that has happened is that he has been shown there is no hope for him in his country.
He wrote that he graduated from Grade 12 in 2017 with 8 distinctions and an average of 92.13%. He was the top student at his school.
