“My family and friends are my biggest support system. My family is so proud of me. They can't stop congratulating me, especially after seeing my establishment.
The 27-year-old explains that not being able to study did initially impact her, but she quickly realised that she had a much bigger purpose:
“I matriculated in 2015. I was trying all by means to further my studies, but the problem was money and not being accepted any time I applied.
“As time went by, I realised that I could make money through my talent, and I started a hair salon.”
The woman with a hair salon offers advice
“I would advise unemployed youth to not give up and to keep on looking for opportunities.
"If there is something you are good at or perhaps just enjoy doing in your free time, turn it into an opportunity. Use it to make a living.”
