A little hard work never killed anybody. In fact, adding extra effort to pursuing our goals will not only accelerate the process but in some cases, can also keep us in good shape, both physically and mentally.
Dr Mashifana proved this to be the case. In a Facebook post shared by Varsity World, Dr Mashifana shares how she worked many nights in laboratories, while juggling lectures which she did during the day.
"I spent hours in the lab. I had to be dirty. I had to sweat. I had to do all of this while I was fully employed. During the day I would be in the classroom lecturing and in the evening I'd be in the lab carrying samples." says Dr Mashifana who is a senior lecturer at the University of Johannesburg.
The Facebook post of the 33-year-old woman left hundreds inspired by her determination and hard work. Here are some of the comments they left beneath it.
"Congrats Dr, you deserve a red carpet."

"I'm speechless. Congratulations Dr, I feel motivated, I will definitely follow in your footsteps."
Dr Mashifana has achieved her doctoral degree from UJ, a MBA from Regent Business School and is currently studying for her postgraduate diploma in higher education.
“I am learning every single day that I need to share, transfer the skills and the knowledge that I have acquired to those I meet. I have seen these skills transferred to the students I teach and I could not trade that experience for anything." she said in a 200 Young South Africans article.
Briefly.co.za also reported a Wits University Medical student is making waves after he posted two images of himself to social media. The young man goes by @classic_keys on both Twitter and Instagram. South African Twitter users are leaving comments of admiration for the young man.
@classic_keys shared the images of himself on Instagram and Twitter but the Twitter post has gone viral as Mzansi tweeps are shook at how good-looking he is. Clad in his Wits scrubs with a black stethoscope around his neck, @classic_keys is the definition of handsome.
The images have nothing to do with his fashion or style, which is generally what people live for. @classic_keys has gone viral simply because he is absolutely handsome.
