- However, he had to work his way up and he even dropped out of varsity to pursue Forex trading
- Today, he is a successful trader, with an estimated network of more than R30 million
At the tender age of 24, Shezi gets to enjoy the fruits of Forex trading, which he started doing three-years-ago.
According to a Facebook post by Millionaires Academy, Shezi became one of the youngest self-made millionaires in 2015 when he started trading stocks on the Forex market.
Brielfy.co.za learned the millionaire hailed from a humble background, but he began his entrepreneurial career at a very young age.
When he was only 12-years-old, Shezi would walk from house to house to sell muffins and used clothes.
Fast forward a few years and he is a rich man, living large with an estimated net worth of $2.4 million, which totals R30.37 million.
Shezi came a long way since his days of selling muffins, and although he was mocked by his fellow peers, he pushed through to make a success of his life.
According to the millionaire himself, he used the mockery to fuel his passion to succeed. In his third year of university, he dropped out without his parents knowing to pursue trading, and he has never looked back since.
After he hit gold, Shezi went back to school to finish his degree, as it was his parents' wish. He even ended up doing a program in global leadership at the prestigious Harvard University.
Shezi is without a doubt one inspirational young man.
