Kwanele Ndlovu was 33 years old when she went to varsity - four years after she was diagnosis with depression, anxiety and kidney diseases. She conquered all the odds against her and has successfully earned her LLB degree.
The woman's first job as a school leaver was as a Court Interpreter - serving up to the High Court in PieterMaritzburg.
"It was that very occupation that cultivated my love for the law. I was in awe as grey beards practiced their craft in well articulated arguments, in a war of words"
She said that she has always known that she would make a great litigator.
"It took over a decade to steer myself to my destiny"
Finally, all that history and hard work has brought her back to the stairs of a High Court, but this time, as a Candidate Attorney.
"This is not the destination. Oh but this journey has been a beauty!"
