- A woman was recognised for her brave approach, as she left a career in IT to start her own farming business
- Unfortunately, she endured public criticism and this had a huge impact on her
- She shared an inspirational post on how she was able to overcome the challenge
Nezisa Sogoni recently received high praise for her decision to quit a career in Information Technology to embark on her agricultural journey.
Nezisa started her own chicken farming business and was honoured for her brave career shift.
However, she revealed that in response to Kganki Matabane's positive article, a gentleman decided to share some harsh criticism.
He ridiculed Nezisa's farming ability and her business as a whole.
The young lady revealed that his negativity had an adverse impact on her, but she chose to rise above it.
In a powerful message via the #ImStaying Facebook group, she explained how his reaction acts as the driving force for her to actually work harder and achieve greater things.
Briefly.co.za noted that her post touched many, as nearly 5 000 people liked the message.
Merle Hull said,
"Follow your dream with passion. Have faith in yourself. There will always be naysayers who will try to put you down. You don’t have to prove anything to anyone. Your actions will speak much louder than words. I wish you all the success you hope for."
Norma Cloete added,
"Good for you. That is the spirit of a winner."
Gillian Stewart explained,
"Qualifications don't help when there aren't enough jobs to go around. You are doing something which creates employment and feeds your family in a time of spiralling unemployment.
"This obsession with tertiary qualifications rather than skills which can build the nation is one of the major causes of unrest among the youth. We need many thousands MORE practical people like you."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Mpumelelo LaNdabezitha is one of the farmers who are tasked with feeding the nation during these difficult times.
LaNdabezitha took to the #ImStaying Facebook page recently to show off her hard work and to gush about being a farmer in the most crucial times.
