Often failing more than once can result in someone giving up on themselves and their dreams. A young woman, however, did not give up on herself after failing Grade 11 not once or twice but three times.
According to a heartwarming Facebook post made by Matjhabeng Street Radio, Keabetswe Modise failed Grade 11 a couple of times but she refused to let that shape her destiny. Keabetswe is now a graduate and has even been accepted by a Japanese university to study towards getting her Master's degree.
