An inspiring young mother has taken to the socials to celebrate bagging her Master of Commerce degree from the University of KwaZulu-Natal while being pregnant and working full-time.
Completing a master’s degree is hard, and bagging that qualification while expecting an entire baby and working full-time is a very big achievement.
Little Lukhanyo looked so cute wearing a tiny graduation gown and cap of his own, with his momma explaining that she had a very special six-month maternity period:

“During my maternity leave, my son and I graduated with a Master of Commerce in Marketing from UKZN. Lukhanyo was growing in my belly while I was busy with my dissertation, and we used to stay up way past midnight. Trying to juggle a full-time job and completing my master’s [was tough].
“Many times, I'd find myself talking to him at 2am when I'd reached a mental block. Some days he'd say, ‘Push mama,’ and on some, he'd say, ‘Mama go to sleep.’ It was physically, emotionally, and mentally challenging, I won't lie. But we were resilient, and we made it. Only uphill from here.”
Many netizens were proud of the resilient mom for pushing through despite facing an uphill battle:
Judy Ramsukh said:
“That is a great achievement, and well done to you.”
Katya Stead is inspired:
“Thank you, Zama, for the inspiration! We too often celebrate the mom with the flawless TikTok, perfect house, quickest weight loss and best 'play dates'. I want to be the mom with a master’s!”
Daphne Anthony reacted:
“Kudos to you on the achievement of your little master and master’s degree. You are truly inspiring and a stellar example of how resilient and committed a woman can be in pursuing her dreams.”
