A person's graduation day is one of the most special moments in life and we want to look on the big day. However, with varsity fees and other more important expenses, buying new clothes are not always a possibility.

Chikwiri, who completed her Honours degree Cum Laude, is aware of the financial strain graduates have to endure, so, she started the initiate to lighten those burdens.

Taking to social media, Chikwiri explained what #DressAGraduate aims to accomplish. She encouraged South Africans to donate clothing, which would dress a student on his or her graduation day.
