When ones leaves varsity, one doesn't expect to create a revolution but to move swiftly in the direction of ones goals to create an impact. In my case, I wanted to do things that mattered, to change a life or two. I didn't want to be stuck in a hole of meaningless work duties. To my parents, they reasoned my work as the impact I'm making, to my mind however, I'm solely making minimum wage so I can go buy the next pair of shoes. Where did the sole purpose of me getting my self educated become quantifiable with the number of woolies heels I could afford. Did I start off with unrealistic working expectations or did my mind get trapped in my projected outcome. When I try to explain my predicament to the working class, they only state that your generation expect to start at the top. But I fear that we are a little misunderstood in our quest for wanting to create a better possibility of our nations and ourselves. Unless the generation before us, we can state that we are educated, I wouldn't necessary state well educated since South Africa education system is ranked 143 out of 150 countries. But, I can state, we did the best we could under our current predicament. Nevertheless, it doesn't mean we are unable to compete with the rest of the work, we just asking for the right training to be able to move swiftly in the direction of our dreams. Teach us to fly. Then, allow us then find our own routes so that we can live the life of our dreams.
