Ngobese has proudly claimed his degree at UKZN’s campus after a lot of hard work.
Throughout the event, the people were quick to comment on Ngobese’s attire for the event. Unlike many, he appeared in a black golf t-shirt and black pants. He was unable to afford a suit for his big ceremony.
Following the incident, Ngobese’s story caught the attention of many people all around the world. In fact, his graduation story drove many people, including visitors, to tears.
The 23-year-old had reflected on his rough journey which he considers “Long and Difficult”. Despite his poverty and lack of resources, he has worked hard to earn a bachelor’s degree. During the ceremony, Ngobese had clearly stated: “I could not afford to buy a suit, but I just had to be there at the graduation.”
During the ceremony, Ngobese’s grandmother could not make the trip to see him graduate due to ill health. He was accompanied by his mother and aunt. Although saddened by the absence of his grandmother, Ngobese has proven that hard effort can make your goal come true. Your ambition should be great regardless of the economics, and you should always remain humble.
