New Tshwane University of Technology graduate Lebo Maduna has a special message for Mzansi citizens and that is not to neglect your dreams. Maduna’s story is profiled by Varsity World via Facebook.
Maduna says after passing Grade 12 she didn’t have an idea which course or career she can pursue and nearly followed a career she didn’t love.
The stunning woman explains she never gave up on her dream despite seeing her peers graduating from tertiary institutions. After bagging a qualification in operations management, Maduna states that her journey had disappointments but she kept going.
The post reads:
"After matriculating I didn't know what I wanted to study and found myself doing something I didn't like for the sake of being a university student. Two years in, I had to decide if I was going to continue doing something I didn't have a passion for or forget about the years lost and go after my dream.
“I chose my dream. I had to look at my peers graduate in record time thinking I'll never get there but God kept me through the sleepless nights and what seemed to be a never ending road. Countless disappointments and bitter moments but all was worth it because I'm doing the one thing I've always wanted to do. My message to everyone is, don't neglect your dreams.”
