In other news about graduates, Briefly.co.za recently reported on friends that finished university together and completed a Master's degree. Sindi KaZanele Ngobese took to the Facebook group #ImStaying to share her inspirational story of friendship.
She and her friends met at university and formed a strong bond. When they graduated they decided to pursue Master's degree together. The Master's degree was more difficult and the girls weren't able to finish at the same time or together.
However, they all managed to graduate and are grateful to each other for their continuous support and are still close friends today. Part of her post read:
"We met in varsity, created a strong bond. We completed our first degree and graduated together. We then all decided to do our Master's degree (peer pressure)."
