In 2005, Tebello Mofokeng's mother passed away and she decided to change her life. At the time, Mofokeng worked as a domestic worker and she sold amakota for a R150 per week to feed her children.

In 2006, she landed a proper job that paid at least R5000 but she wanted more and two years later, Mofokeng enrolled in university at the age of 33.

Juggling a job and three children while studying proved to be difficult and it took her several years before she graduated with her BCom degree in Management in 2015.

"2017 I registered for my Honours. I did my honours in one year. 2018 I graduated with BCom Honours in Business Management," she wrote.

Mofokeng found her purpose and she became a motivational speaker at a local radio station.

"Through the eyes of man having studied history and bibs at school it was impossible to achieve what I have achieved. I serve a God of impossibilities...God who qualifies the unqualified."
