Attorney shares teacher influence

Briefly News spoke to the woman to find out just how her Afrikaans teacher made an impact that changed the course of her life. She almost dropped out of school in grade 10 because of the bullying, but luckily she was reminded of her worth.

"It wasn’t specifically my journey to becoming a lawyer, but rather Ms Demas, my Afrikaans teacher, impacted the way I perceived myself at a very important developmental stage in my life. I was a teenager, a tender age, and being mocked for something, anything, when you are at that fragile age meant the end of the world to most kids.

"Ms. Demas and many of my teachers impacted my journey to success in many ways. Ms Demas, specifically, gave me a way to deal with bullies who were mocking me for living in Fairyland, an informal settlement with lots of shacks. She told me that the most beautiful, whitest Lillie grows from the darkest soil when some kids were mocking me again about living in a shack. It was a very bad day that day. Her words immediately took the embarrassment and humiliation away, and all thoughts of dropping out of school disappeared."

Understanding how many children face this, people flooded the comments section clapping for her success. She is now a beacon of hope and inspiration for other children out there.

Sam clapped:

“Miss Demas, please come to the front of the class, we need to salute you.”
