In other inspiring education news, Briefly News reported that Katlego Letimela took to social media to share the news that she fulfilled her dream of becoming a nurse.

"Mama today I am a graduate. Wow. I never thought imagined that I will get this far," she wrote

Social media users were left inspired by her story and vowed to match her work ethic and determination. Letimela detailed the challenges she faced.

“During matric in 2013 I applied for nursing, and I got rejected because I filled the forms out with a blue pen instead of using the black recommended pen. This broke my little heart, I could not get into nursing then, a passion in my heart,” she said

Letimela said in 2014 she decided to pursue a PC training course but was unable to complete her studies due to financial constraints.
