Memory Bere is proof that you can do anything you put your mind to. The female motor mechanic ventured into a male-dominated industry and is doing very well for herself.
She was born in Chipenge, Zimbabwe and her career has flourished in neighbouring South Africa.
The mechanic says that she was raised by 4 words: "Mubatei muuye naye pano," which translates to, "Catch it and bring it here."
Memory wants to inspire other women to never allow society's stereotypes to hold them back. Her hopes for 2022 are to open her very own workshop and introduce more women in the mechanics field.

Beautiful woman celebrates clinching
In news of more women doing well for themselves, YEN.com.gh previously reported on a South African woman has peeps beaming along with her in pride. Dr Pulane Modiha recently graduated from the Witwatersrand University (Wits) with her PhD in in Management.
Speaking on her academic career, Pulane said the journey to obtaining her PhD was rewarding academically and personally and was reminded of what her late grandmother always shared with her, that education opens doors no man can close and most importantly, provides knowledge that no one can take away from you.
Her study focused on examining the interplay between first line roles within the banking sector, career progression and gender equality. Pulane is also the head of Business Solutions and Tactical Initiatives at FNB Dynamic Decisioning.
