Mom who was sound engineer mentors young kids and thrives with business

The Walter Sisulu University graduate worked several jobs before resigning from a call centre job for personal reasons, leading to her period of unemployment.

"As a breadwinner back at home, I had to find ways of making money. That’s how I became a personal shopper. I would charge people a certain fee for buying them things they wanted such as wigs, clothing, homeware and so forth.
"I continued applying for jobs and being rejected which was quite a draining experience, but because I had goals for my life I had to keep on going and thanks to my mom, whom we would pray at a certain time every day, I then had the strength to keep on moving and believing that God would deliver me," Simamkele shared.

Thankfully, her faith, family and friends kept Simamkele going, and it wasn't long before her prayers were answered.

"Just when I was about to close my birthday month, God blessed me with a permanent job which I am forever grateful for as he never left me. God saw my heart and my situation, and he changed my situation hence the video."
