After suffering from depression, she emphasises that her intention is not to boast but to motivate others, particularly black individuals facing similar challenges.

"I was depressed being a cleaner for a year and people laughing at me, saying my teaching qualification was useless. I wasted four full years at university to be a cleaner.
"I decided to take this massive step in my life to seek employment in South Korea. My relocation was not easy. I moved to a foreign country with only R2 000 in my account.

"It was my inspiration or goal to be a landlord, just that I didn’t have the funds to pursue my dream. I built one room while working as a cleaner and after four months in Korea, I added three rooms, and now it is four rooms."

Adjusting to life after university can be challenging. In South Africa, 31% of the unemployment rate is attributed to graduates. Psychologists believe that unemployment continues to trigger: depression and damage emotional health.
