Learners should not be embarrassed to re-write

One could say that her failing matric was not so bad after all. But the young woman says her failure was something that could have been prevented. During her matric year, she focused on her music career and entered a competition that shifted her focus even further. Nikilitha encouraged learners not to throw in the towel in similar situations.

"I know you may be feeling hopeless right now, but it really isn’t the end. I know my story seems unique but if it can happen to me, it can happen to you. So many other people have gone on to do amazing things after their biggest failures, so don’t be embarrassed to re-write!❤️"
