Oreabetswe Mokale was proud to share her achievement with the rest of Mzansi, adding herself to the Mokale family list of already accomplished university grads. Oreabetswe Mokale added that even though she couldn't walk the stage at a traditional graduation ceremony, her achievements aren't diminished.
In the post she wrote:
"The big day has finally come. I am a Bachelor of Science in Biomedicine graduate from Pearson Institute of Higher Education. I might not have walked the stage physically, it doesn’t diminish the weight of my achievement. So incredibly proud of myself and grateful for all the relationships I built with friends and lecturers alike. To my mom, all that I am is because of you, thank you."
Oreabetswe also took to social media earlier this week to share a short clip of her families wall of University graduates. The video pans us through the family home where many other relatives accomplishments are put on display. The graduate captioned the humble flex:
