- A young lady who works in a mine recently shared a highly inspirational post about life as a miner
- According to her post, she cried on her first day on the job as the experience was very emotionally taxing
- The post received many reactions from locals who loved to see how brave she was for staying at her job as a miner despite it being very difficult
Working in the mines away from sunlight and the rest of humankind is a terribly difficult job. A young woman recently headed online to share with the world just how difficult it is for her, especially as a woman in a male-dominated field.
In her inspirational and eye-opening post, the young lady with the Twitter handle @KaraboNkoana_za shared that on the first day working as a miner, she cried because of how hard it was.
"I was only 23 when I started working underground, I remember I cried the first day I had to walk 10km to site. I told myself, why should I suffer like this ke tsene skolo? Tjo, but I’m starting to realise that the world meets nobody halfway," she wrote in the post.
Locals had this to say about the post:
"I'm curious because I'm experiencing a similar situation. How did you deal with that question of yours ya gore 'why should you suffer like that, mola o tsene skolo?' "
"Everything happens for a reason and there's a season and time for everything. Always have bigger plans for your life, write down goals for your future, have a vision of how you want to see your life be like in few years and always focus on that. It becomes easier to deal with current ordeals."
In similar inspiring Briefly News reports, a young South African woman, Tshego Monnapula Maphisa, recently headed to Facebook's ImStaying group to share an inspirational post about her first time driving in a taxi with a female driver.
"Today I got into this taxi and the person driving it was a woman... so I'm deciding to #Stay because I am inspired to see that women are now becoming more involved in fields where you'd mostly find men. #Imbokodo #Inspired," she wrote.
Many Stayers wholeheartedly agreed and were soon in the comment section sharing their thoughts on having a woman behind the wheel in taxis.
