- Tsietsi Ngobese graduated this year and is an actuarial scientist
- He says he'd prefer to continue sell vegetables on the street than take up an office job
- He is also developing a mathematics tutoring program called WeSolveX
Tsietsi Ngobese's graduate success story is like no other. Rather than plotting to climb further up on the corporate ladder, the actuarial graduate would much prefer to continue selling his vegetables in the streets.
Looking smart is his fine black suit and heart-warming smile, Tsiestsi sets up shop on his street, ready for another day selling veggies. After all, what better way is here to keep in touch with the community.
Tsietsi has big dreams as well. He is developing his mathematics tutoring program, cleverly called WeSolveX. Tsietsi understands the transformative power of education and hopes to use his skills and degree to empower learners, one equation at a time, Briefly.co.za found.
"South Africa Basic Education System is one of the best in the world, however, the challenge, is how the content is delivered which is not unique to global education challenges. Working together we can make a difference," writes Tsietsi on Twitter.
Tsietsi believes that leading a successful life is about more than just financial success and qualifications, a position that is easy to lose sight of considering the struggle the youth endure to go to university and challenge the dramatically high unemployment rate.
He continues to develop his community and put his hard work and academic success to good use, while continuing to do what makes him happy, and in turn, shares his positivity with every passer-by he greets and sells delicious veggies to.
For his graduation, Tsietsi wrote that it takes a village to raise a child, and thanked his family for their support.
