Who says women can't do the same jobs as men? One lady, Zamanzini Philisiwe Zungu, is proving that women can succeed in industries dominated by men.
Zungu is an engineer who decided to expand her house's structure. Instead of hiring a builder, the inspiring lady took on the physical work herself.
She shared photos of her handiwork on Facebook and captioned the post:
"This is what I am good at."
Another woman, Nompilo Majozi, then decided to share Zungu's story on the #ImStaying Facebook page.
"If this doesn't inspire you, then I don't know what will. Sis studied civil engineering at FET, now look what she's doing in her home. Her name is Zamanzini Philisiwe Zungu...I'm so proud to be a woman!"
South Africans were inspired by Zungu's hustle and they applauded her in the comment section.

Previously, YEN.com.gh reported on another inspiring South African. RenneckProvide RoseUniquemunhle Mrkhoza shared a compilation of pictures with a brief caption proudly showing off his two jobs.
Mrkhoza works as both a male nurse and a builder and he could not be prouder of his jobs.
He shared images of both his jobs and captioned them:
"I'm a professional nurse but I don't limit my abilities, take care of your talents and they will take good care of you!!!"
In other news, age, they say is just a number, and Elizabeth-Irene Baitie, a Ghanaian woman who just turned 50 years old has just affirmed the truism in this narrative.
Without stereotyping women or persons who look older than their age, Baitie has been hailed as a quintessential example of a person who has defied time to maintain her youthful hue.
Elizabeth-Irene Baitie just marked her 50th birthday in August 2020 and she has taken to social media to celebrate her new age with lovely snaps of herself.
