A UKZN student has just graduated against all odds.

His heart-warming story comes at a much-needed time after much stress and challenges have presented themselves post-lockdown.

This viral story is one that we all know too well. Dumisani Ngobese was the first of his family to graduate and was raised by his grandmother, who was a street vendor.

ECR News reports: One of the graduates, Dumisani Ngobese from Bhukhanana, a rural area outside eMpangeni, could not hold back his tears after he was conferred with a Bachelor of Arts degree at a ceremony held at the UKZN’s Westville Campus on Friday. 

He described his moment on stage as a short-lived but unforgettable moment.

We wish Dumisani all the best on his journey and can't wait to follow up with him a month from now.
