A Venda University of Technology IT graduate shared a touching testimony of how although so many odds were stacked against him, he managed to persevere through and obtain his qualification.
Although Surprice Morole completed his matric in 2010, life saw him drop out of tertiary twice resulting in many people, including family members, writing him off. He experienced all this while dealing with loss.
"I lost three of my little brothers to death and my mother as well. My world was shattered, I thought to myself that time heals but I didn't want any second of my breath without them,” said Surprice.
