A lady has stated on social media that when considering going abroad for career purposes, the only thing that matters is what one can bring to the table.
Naledi Millicent Mabidilala made this statement on LinkedIn as she marked 2 years since leaving South Africa to pursue her dream of becoming a mining engineer in Australia.
Naledi recalled that she left South Africa with only two bags and her career dreams.
The 27-year-old admitted that she nursed fears of finding her feet in Australia because of not having any family there.

But her determination eventually paid as Naledi would later discover that she left South Africa with an extra thing called courage.
"My fears were strong. Heading to a foreign continent, where I have no family. I kept telling myself, "I am still young, what if I fail, what if I am not good enough."...... Coming from the most disadvantaged province (Limpopo) in South Africa, "how will I compete in the world."
"Our self-limiting beliefs, hold us back from realising our true capabilities.
"I realise now that I had more than just bags, I had 'COURAGE'."
