In 2006, she landed a proper job that paid at least GHC 26,000 but she wanted more and two years later, Mofokeng enrolled in university at the age of 33.

Juggling a job and three children while studying proved to be difficult and it took her several years before she graduated with her bachelor of commerce degree in Management in 2015.

"In 2017 I registered for my honours. I completed them in one year. 2018 I graduated with bachelor of commerce in Business Management," she wrote.

Mofokeng found her purpose and she became a motivational speaker at a local radio station.

She has since enrolled in another degree and is on her way to complete her PhD.

Mofokeng said:

"Through the eyes of man having studied history and bibs at school, it was impossible to achieve what I have achieved. I serve a God of impossibilities. God who qualifies the unqualified."

She advised women not to pull each other down adding that her trust in God was what kept her going and never gave up.
