Hard work pays off. She was a domestic worker few years ago. Look at her now [OPINION]

If you have dreams that you want to achieve you will never wallow around and do nothing, instead you will try by all means to achieve them in the long run. Dreams are achievable, but you have to work hard if you want to see yourself somewhere after certain years. The reason most people fail to achieve their dreams is because they give up along the way. In life, giving up is not always an option. You will never reach your destination if you keep quitting.

Even when it gets tough, don't you dare quit. Ntombizodwa Mahlangu should inspire you. Ntombizodwa is a South African woman who was once a domestic worker who used to take home a small amount of money every month. Because she had dreams and she didn't want to spend the rest of her living days working as a domestic worker she went back to school and studied.

Mahlangu is now a public relations officer. The BA graduate is also an author and advocate for struggling women. She obtained her BA degree in Human and Social Studies from Unisa in 2018 and now wants to pay it forward by assisting others through her non-profit organisation, Help One Helper.

Education is important. It helps eradicate poverty and hunger, giving people the chance at better lives. This is one of the biggest reasons why parents strive to make their kids attend school as long as possible. It is also why nations work toward promoting easier access to education for both children and adults.

People who attended school and attained a higher level of education are considered more employable and likely to earn more. Education helps an individual meet basic job qualifications and makes them more likely to secure better jobs.

African child, don't give up on your dreams. Keep working hard and avoid distractions. Education isn't just about learning a collection of facts and knowledge that can't be applied to the real world. It helps the uniform development of a country by fighting the inequalities of society.
