- Sinako Bomela is one impressive young lady- at the age of 23 she holds a Master of Law degree from the University of the Free State
- And, she went on to land a high profile job at the Con Court
- It made her the first black female who graduated from UFS to be honoured with a high position in the Con Court
Bomelo graduated with a Master's degree in law from the UFS, then went on to be appointed as a law researcher at the highest court in SA- the Con Court.
Her inspirational story was shared on social media by @SheSouthAfrica.
"Meet @sinakobomela who at an early age of 23 completed a Master’s degree in law @UFSweb. She was later appointed as a law researcher at the Con Court, the Highest Court in the land to Justice Jafta. She is one of the first beneficiaries of the Law Faculty Bursary at @UFSweb," the thread started off.
Briefly.co.za learned Bomela was born in Colesburg, a small underprivileged town in the Northern Cape.
"I don’t want to only inspire those that come from similar backgrounds as I that it is possible, that you can come from nothing to something, but to work with them to become their dream," the 23-year-old was quoted saying.
Aside from her exceptional academic record and employment at the Con Court, Bomela is also the founder of Sinako We Can Movement, a project that aims to give South Africans a clearer view of the Con Court's role in the country.
As for what she has to say to other women, Bomela added: "You are worthy of your wildest dreams. The power is in us. the power to be, to become, to overcome and to create. The moment you realise that you will be unstoppable, be stoppable at your own peril."
