A young man, Bheka Nxumalo, has worked hard to obtain his degree and his hustle and humbleness were praised on social media.
Last week, Calvin Mathibeli, the owner of Calvin and Family Group (CFG), took to social media to share the inspirational story of Bheka Nxumalo.
Mathibeli revealed Nxumalo sent him a message, asking for his help with employment - no matter the job.
"He sent me a message requesting if I can hire him for 1 month even if he can clean my cars or do my garden just for him to raise fund for his graduation day," Mathibelo wrote.
Briefly.co.za gathered Nxumalo put aside his pride and the fact that he is an accountant because he was willing to do whatever it takes to get his degree.
His hustle paid off and Nxumalo not only graduated but he also landed a job with the CFG as an accountant.
"He was willing to do anything to make sure that this day becomes a success. I couldn’t resist. Yes he is now a permanent member of CFG," Mathibelo added.
The story inspired social media users who praised Nxumalo for his dedication to get his degree.
Pontso Tshabalala commented: "Wow to God be the Glory, always humbleness is the Best."
Barbie Mbatha added: "Teary eyes. God is great and will bless you abundantly, congratulation boy, hard work has paid off."
Sbonelo Mazubane said: "Well done Young man. Thank you Sir Calvin for your assistance."
