Unemployed graduate makes bricks to keep afloat, refuses to give up on his dreams, Mzansi stans positivity

In related news, Briefly News reported that there are thousands of unemployed graduates in Mzansi. One young man has refused to let his situation define his future and knows there will be light at the end of the tunnel… eventually.

Having studied many long hours to get a qualification, it can be extremely demotivating to stay unemployed thereafter. While making bricks was not this man’s plan, he is making the most of it.

Twitter user @Ndi_Muvenda_ took to his timeline with a few snaps of his hustle. He might not be where he wants to be, however, that will not stop him from continuing to push. Nothing will break his stride, and we love it!
