- Sithebe revealed her father refused to pay her studies with the cash he saved up
- So, she started working as a petrol attendant to pay tuition
- Today, she's a graduate and a business owner
A beautiful lady, S'busisiwe Buska Sithebe, is feeling blessed and she has everything to. On 3 December, Sithebe took to the #ImStaying Facebook page to share her inspiring story.
In 2004, after finishing high school, Sithebe's father had a change of heart and he refused to fund her studies with the R20 000 he saved up over the years.
He told the newly matriculated girl to go and find a job if she wanted to study. Although it was devastating at the time, Sithebe said she's grateful for it today.
In 2006, Sithebe started working as a petrol attendant at a Shell gas station. She worked there for three years before landing an administration job at Josha Research.
In 2011, the determined young woman started working in statistics but she was soon left unemployed. Briefly.co.za learned she decided to take matters into her own hands and in 2017, Sithebe founded her own business.
Through it all, Sithebe never gave up on her dream of graduating and on Friday, 29 November, that dream became a reality.
She wrote in the post:
"I graduated and I think the biggest legacy we are going to leave is a whole community of children who believe they can do anything in this world because they watched their mama's do it."
Vanessa Gray commented:
"Well done for making it happen despite the challenges. I have so much faith in the youth and the future."
Zodwa Khoza added:
"Well done gal, the sky has no limits for you."
Marion Abbott wrote:
"Super proud of you. May your legacy live on."
Amalia Gomes Ferreira said:
"Well done young lady.. Where there is a will, there is a way. You are the living proof."
Briefly.co.za also reported on Makhanani Baloyi who has graduated after years of hard work, dedication and Mzansi is here for every moment of it.
The stunning woman was showered with love after she posted about her inspiring achievement.
