- A young man took to social media to heap praise on his sister for the role she played in getting an education
- He revealed that he started studying at the University of Johannesburg when his father lost his job

Education is such a powerful tool to uplift the masses, but the sad reality is that many South Africans can’t afford tertiary studies.
One young man took to social media to heap praise on his sister for the role she played in his education.
Twitter user, @Lipra_LM, detailed how he had just started studying at the University of Johannesburg when his father lost his job in 2008.
He had nowhere to turn to and no way of funding his studies, but then his sister stepped in.
At the risk of her own marriage, she assisted financially to enable him to become qualified.
The young gentleman rounded off the tweet by saying: “We take women for granted, but their hearts are bigger than ours.”
Briefly.co.za noted the reaction as more than 500 people liked the post. However, some took exception to his generalisation that men take women for granted.
