More and more women are making their mark in industries formerly dominated by men. One of those ladies is a social media user, who was only identified as @Monroe244.
The young lady shared photos of herself and the work she has completed recently. According to her Twitter page, @Monroe244 installs ceilings and pavements, and she works as a tiler.
On Sunday, she shared snaps of the work she had done and captioned the post:
"The results. I ain't perfect ka zama. A retweet will be appreciated highly."
Take a look at the post below:
Not only did her post get retweeted over 10 900 times, but it generated reactions from more than 28 600 South Africans.
Mzansi social media users were inspired to see a young woman who is not afraid to get her hands dirty.
Twitter user, @DLionandDJewel, commented:
"Remove the 'I ain't perfect' from your vocabulary and go forth and prosper. You did good and will only get better but do not ever downplay your work ethic, drive and excellence. Ever."
Another tweep, @Amanda_Aphane, wrote:
"Caught between tiling my own office and hiring you. Your work is remarkable."
Social media user, @Tlhadi, added:
"I am struggling to understand what perfection you're looking for, because what I see it's just pure excellent work."
Previously, Briefly.co.za reported on another inspiring lady. Zama Philisiwe Zungu went viral in Women's Month when photos surfaced online showing her building an additional room on her home.
The 26-year-old inspired South Africans with her skills in construction and she proved women have what it takes to succeed in a man's world.
Zungu made the decision to become an engineer in 2014 and her father was a major motivation for her.
"My dad was my inspiration since he is also a builder," she said, adding: "Also I was inspired by the lack of women in this industry, since it was labelled as a man's job. I took the challenge knowing very well there are quite a number of challenges I'd encounter in a male-dominated career."
