A brave and powerful woman has earned Mzansi's respect by putting herself first. @SnehKhanyile9 revealed on Twitter that she quit her job and was on her way home without any work lined up.
What made Mzansi proud was that she quit due to her home/work-life balance, she said she was overworked, undervalued and racism was rife in the workplace.
This is her original caption:
"I resigned from my job because I couldn’t take how I was overworked, unvalued and the racism there. I’ve survived migraines and panic attacks more than I can remember. I have no plan no new job lined up, just a flight ticket home and a luggage full of hope. I will be fine."

Here is what social media users had to say about her:
"Not taking anything away from you and your bravery, but till we all learn to challenge the toxicity in the work environment and stand up for ourselves against racism in the very same workplaces, we will continue being taken advantage of. Sometimes resigning is not the only option."
"Stay hopeful Sweetheart, I can so relate to your situation. Panic & asthma attacks plus migraines were the order of the day. It was hell from 2010 until 2015, after quitting I gained my sanity and health."
"I really admire people who do that, I've heard people complain about toxic working environments something that's not emphasised a lot and taken into consideration in the corporate world. One would tell you to hang in there cause it's your bread and butter."
