‘Your background shouldn’t determine your future’- Zondi

Sphamandla Zondi (30) is one of many graduates that graduated at the uMfolozi TVET College Esikhawini Campus on Thursday, 30 August 2018 with a good story to tell.

Zondi was first employed as a gardener at Chief Albert Luthuli Campus in 2011. He was then contracted as a cleaner at the same Campus in 2013. He however, did not feel complete until he enrolled for a course in Business Management at the campus. “It was very difficult because I had to be financially smart in order to ensure that my family is well taken care of and that my studies are paid for. I did everything I could to make sure that I become a step closer to achieving my dreams. There were times where I had to stay up late at night studying and doing assignments after work,” explained Zondi.

After completing the theoretical part of his studies he had to seek practical exposure. “I was happy when the Campus opened its doors for me to do my workplace training. I worked hard and assisted in various departments which opened my mind a lot. I was ecstatic to be doing something new and to apply what I had learnt in class. I took the Business course because I love working with people and one day hope to have my own business.”

“Spotting an advert in the newspaper for a Photocopy Machine Operator in March this year changed my life. I applied and to my surprise I got the job at the campus. My life changed for the better but I’m confident to say that this is only the beginning as I would like to study towards becoming a lecturer,” added Zondi.

The young lad said what’s important is to have vision, direction, self-respect and perseverance in order to make it in life. “You cannot only rely on being smart but you have to work hard and be disciplined in order to realize your dreams. Your background shouldn’t determine your future,” he concluded.
