Not everyone is brave enough to tell the world when they've failed at something. A young lady recently decided that she would not be one of those people. Heading online she shared a heartfelt post about failing her accountancy exam.
According to the post, she had failed the SAICA (South African Institute of Chartered Accountants) exam. A screenshot from the institution indicates that she had taken the exam in 2020 but unfortunately did not make it. Instead of giving up, she wrote in her caption that she will be trying again.
"I will tell you a different story next year.," she wrote.
Locals were super inspired and supportive. Many of them took to the replies section where they shared thoughtful messages. Read a few of them below:
"We fail forward and failure is not detrimental."
"We will keep on keeping on. This is not the end"
"This is brave, and I commend people close to you who didn't make you feel anyhow but be supportive."
Sipho Nkosi said:
"Sorry, and never give up. It's only a few months left before your next attempt and you will nail it and pass. Fail doesn't mean that you have done & out, it gives more courage to ace it #SAICA"
According to Kwesi Tumtum, who is now a graduate, he returned home in 2017 to pursue a degree at the prestigious Ghanaian university. He, however, did not anticipate that the four-year programme would be demanding and require dedication, commitment amid challenges to complete.
In a Twitter post by the young graduate, he disclosed that he nearly abandoned his programme a year after enrolling at the Central University Business School. ''In 2017, I returned to Ghana and enrolled at Central University’s Business School. After one business maths lecture, I called my mum and told her I quit,'' he said.
