"Sometimes I burn out and take a step back but I find myself back at it. I start work at 5am thus making my days longer. This also helps with having more time to do things. I set goals for myself every year. Last year my goal was to move out of home, grow in my career, my hair business and take myself on holiday. I did all of that. That is what keeps me going, the goal-getter said."

Woman becomes 1st person in family to graduate despite impoverished background

Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that a young woman became the pride and joy of her loved ones after securing her Bachelor of Arts degree and becoming the first person to graduate in her family.

Rethabile Ramaota’s inspiring story was shared on the Varsity World Facebook page, where she disclosed that she had initially decided against attending her graduation ceremony this year until she realised how much celebrating the special moment meant to her family.

“As the first university graduate in my family, they are super proud of me and it would’ve been selfish of me to decide I won’t get on the stage and give them the full experience. I had always promised my grandma that when I graduate I’ll buy her first flight ticket and she’d come to see me graduate in Cape Town. How I almost lost her last year to a stroke made this more urgent as broke as I was, I made a way,” Rethabile said in the post.
