Lungile Tracey Nsele may have lost her parents when she was younger, but she never lost hope in herself.
The young mechanical engineer previously told Briefly News that she grew up as an orphan and worked as a domestic worker before studying and eventually bagging an apprenticeship at Elinem Construction.
The construction worker had a tough upbringing
Lungile’s mom died when she was eight in 2003, with her dad passing when she was around 12 in 2007:
“Growing up was not easy. Sometimes you need your parents' advice. So, it was hard, and I felt like I had a hole in my heart. My dad was never part of my life."
The KZN artisan has big plans
Lungile has hopes of utilising her skills to improve the lives of her family members.
Despite growing up without parents, she carries no bitterness in her soul and is simply thrilled about moving forward in life:
“I want to continue studying. I am still busy with crane operator studies. In the future, I would like to renew my mother’s home because I feel like I owe them that. I want my family to have a lovely place they can call home.”
