UTHANDO Nesthembu reality star Mbali MaNgwabe Mseleku has reached a milestone as she graduated from Thembelani Nursing College on Thursday, 2 September.
Despite pressure from her husband to drop her studies, Mbali persevered and made it clear on the last episode of Uthando Nesthembu that she wasn’t giving up/
The graduation was a confirmation of my sweat and hard work. It took me two years to complete this diploma and I’m proud of myself. The last two years were extremely difficult for me. I was constantly under pressure, trying to juggle my studies and five other tasks. For example, I had to take care of my husband, the kids, the family, my businesses, my in-laws and my studies. I had to multitask and use my time wisely. Fortunately, I had great support from home and colleagues, which made a huge difference,” said Mbali.
“I’m passionate about primary healthcare, which means my focus is mainly on communities. My day-to-day work is done at a clinic level. What I like about primary healthcare is that I’m the first point of contact. This is where I get to interact and assist our patients before they are even referred,” she said.
After completing her diploma, she completed another nursing certificate.
“This nursing diploma is my second qualification. I have several nursing certificates including the one that I recently received. I believe that knowledge is never enough, as a result, I’m not done studying. I’m studying so I can be the best in what I do,” she said.
She said she had no ambitions to become a doctor.
“My long-term goal is to manage a health institution and impart my knowledge and skills to my younger colleagues. In the same breath, I want to encourage other women to wake up and study. With dedication and discipline, nothing is impossible,” she said. –Daily Sun
