South Africans were quick to react to the news of the girl’s academic achievement.
“Excellent stuff!!! Woman, the world is hers for the choosing now! This young lady's hard work has opened so many opportunities on so many continents. Excited to see how she changes the world."
“Most intelligent women either wear glasses or natural hair. There's no in-between.”
“Girl is probably fluent in isiZulu but her parents may have wanted her to take this route of learning European languages so that she can leave and go study in Europe and get a job there. That way she can escape this high youth (graduate) unemployment of RSA.”
“Excellent. Congratulations. Makes a big difference when you’re in a private school paying R6965 a month. So sad that the vast majority of SA children are at the mercy of basic education Dept. Please @AngieMotshekga give them a better chance.”
“I do not think they looking down on indigenous languages, firstly the school is literally called Deutsche Internationale Schule Johannesburg and secondly as much as our African languages are beautiful you aren’t getting a job in MIT or Harvard with them that's just reality.”
