Sh0cking: woman matriculate at Age 31 and bags a bachelor pass. Sanele Cele breaks all the odds

Woman bags a bachelor pass after matriculating at age 31, Sanele Cele has broken the odds by going back to school in order to fulfill her dreams. Cele matriculated at Mzingezwi High School in Ndwendwe in the Kwa Zulu Natal Province whereby she was a full time pupil.

Sanele has amazed mzansi because she failed her matric in 2006 and returned back to school in 2021 to rewrite her matric, more than a decade later, she is more determined to fulfill her lifetime dreams of obtaining bachelor pass and becoming a nurse later.

Despite age differences between her and her classmates, Cele didn't feel any less of a student, Cele also explained that she was even far more older than some of her teachers whilst some of her classmates were half her age and the kids somehow laughed at her but she however didn't suffer from that instead stayed focused as she aimed at achieving her goals.

Cele 's family didn't show any form of support as they discouraged her from going back to six, with regards to the fact that she's old and she has a young baby that needed full time attention,Cele instead took her child to a nearby creche and daycare center in order to attend school, after school she picked up her child and went home to practice her school work and finish her homework.

Her lifetime goal looked inevitable as she had to work as a domestic worker in order to save money for her school uniform and necessary stationery for her academic year of matric.

As a result of being kicked out from her home, Cele rented out a room with her child's support grant and went for some days without food as she had no other means of income, Cele thanked the school for being sincere with her throughout her academic year and offering her extra food when she had nothing and now aims at focusing on being a nurse and taking care of her baby girl.
