Paballo, not to be mistaken with Pablo (Picasso), is a local woman who has made it her business to paint the canvas that is her social media account using her most noteworthy milestones of 2021 as a sumptuous year draws to a close.
While it's been an epic ride for many on the streets, others, like Paballo, are happy to give a healthy report on how the last 12 months have shaped up. Her post is one of many that have cropped up on Twitter showcasing tweeps' graduations after the successful completion of their tertiary studies.
But what makes this particular stunner's social media post unique is not only the academic milestone she's checked but the fact that it was accompanied by another graduation, that of becoming a traditional healer or a sangoma – ukuthwasa.

"This year's greatest achievements."
The caption accompanies two side by side pics. In one image, she is adorned in a black academic garb complete with a graduation hat and a bouquet. In another snap, she is seen kneeling on the ground, dressed in her full sangoma attire, amid the process of ukuthwasa.
Mentions flooded with praises
The tweet attracted close to 4 000 likes and was retweeted more than 220 times as locals reacted to the incredible scenes. Briefly News took to the comments to bring readers the mesmerised responses to the post.
"Relatable content. Congratulations."
"This is beautiful. Can I post this next year also? What an inspiration. Studying and being ko lefethlong was the hardest thing I ever had to do. Congratulations."
"Thokoza Gogo! Congratulations! Doing both can’t have been easy."
Man obtains medical degree, dedicates it to late mother
Elsewhere, Briefly News previously reported that a few other things could compare to the pride felt by a parent who witnesses their child achieve greatness in one of the most important faculties in life – education.
However, things take on a more sombre tone once the parent a child works hard to make proud is no more, as one local gent who recently obtained his medical degree can attest.
Heading online, the tweep, @nqaba37, shared an image of himself in his graduation gown and firmly clutching the all-important piece of paper conferred on him during his graduation.
The caption read:
"Dr Mngomezulu officially. Missed Mom today, but I'm sure she's proud wherever in the universe her soul rests."
