The idea of a fish and chips waitress terrified Ntsoane and motivated her to work hard to succeed in life. She studied so hard, she ended up getting a bursary to pursue a pharmacist degree.
However, after graduating she found the working life was not all she dreamt off- she hated being restrictive and trapped in a nine to five job.
So, she took the risk and opened her own company- Afrilink Healthcare. Briefly.co.za the company started out as a small medical centre with only a doctor, dentist, optometrist and a pharmacy.
Two years after she founded Afrilink, she used all her profits and bought a fully furnished mobile clinic, which had a full-time retired nurse working on it.
It's the mobile clinic that scored Ntsoane a gig with the Tshwane Department of Health to bring healthcare to schools.
