Facebook page Varsity World recently took to the app to share the exciting news of a young woman, Ntombikayise Precious Bhengu's achievement - getting her Master's degree in chemical engineering.
Ntombikayise first reached out for help from her fellow South Africans via the Facebook page in 2017 and was able to come up with the money to enrol at a varsity to complete her qualification. Three years later, she has is now a qualified chemical engineer.
In the post, Ntombikayise explains how she had to overcome many obstacles in order to finally reach her goal of having her Masters.
"I have officially completed my MSc in chemical engineering. Thank you to each and every individual who backed me. From when I started my MSc until I finished, I have had so much backing. My MSc journey was tough. I got TB, broke down more than once, was full of self-doubt and nearly quit more than once."
She goes on to say that the support from the people who were willing to invest in her dream was what stopped her from giving up and gave her the strength to keep on going. She finished off by saying thank you and that she would be "forever grateful".
Facebook users who were proud of her for finally reaching her goal and persevering against all odds left messages of support underneath the post.
@Michael Towner said:
"Congratulations with your promising career".
While @SamuelMaila said:
"Congratz my sister. Nothing comes easy. Well done."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported about a young woman who was able to start her own farm, which employs 20 people, after she had failed matric. Taking to Twitter to share her story, @BlessingRamoba wrote how the young woman from Eastern Cape failed matric but then went on to successfully start up her very own farm.
Twitter users did not miss the opportunity to comment on Siphesihle's success and were soon flooding the post with messages of support and advice. Many of them could not believe that she was able to achieve such a great feat.
Others however seemed to agree with the notion that education is no longer the key to success and that one simply has to have the drive and the determination to achieve your goal.
