Actor Thabiso Molokomme, who graduated with 20 distinctions in operations management from the University of Johannesburg earlier this year, is beaming with excitement.
This week, the actor shared his accomplishments on his timeline and spoke up about his struggles in an interview with TshisaLIVE.
“I worked long mornings, days and nights to achieve it and I’m so extremely proud of myself. This shows that having big goals, praying and working hard can get you anywhere. I do plan on studying further, but I won’t be enrolled for traditional modes of education.”
His achievement was celebrated with close friends and family.
“On the night of my graduation I went out of for dinner with my family and close friends. Ever since I graduated I told myself I won’t eat breakfast, lunch nor dinner in my home. I will go out to eat. I’m also flying myself to Cape Town to celebrate this magical achievement, as well as my 21st birthday.”
Thabiso expressed hope on social media that his tale will inspire others not to give up.
“Received my stage pictures and I’m still in awe five months later of this achievement. Twenty distinctions at 20.
“If you are on the verge of giving up or just mentally not being okay because of academics, may you find inspiration from my story to press on and continue.
“The joy of having your parents dress up and travel through the N1 to see their child graduate is unexplainable!” he wrote.
