Accept whatever life throws at you

10 Mar,2016Profiles

Learn to accept everything that life throws at you. These are the words of Nohlelo Ntlatywa a store person from Port St Johns Team in the Eastern Cape.

31 year old Ntlatywa was born with no disabilities but at the age of 6 that changed.

 “I was playing with my friend when a snake bit me on the right foot,” explained Nohlelo.

She said that she was then taken to the nearest hospital where doctors had to amputate her foot as the poison had spread on the foot.

“That day changed my life completely and I had to learn to live with the new situation, but I tried my best to accept my disability,” continued an emotional Nohlelo.

Nohlelo said that with the support from her parents she did very well in school until her matric in 2004.

“After my matric I went to do business management at a Further Education and Training College but I could not finish due to financial problems,” she told Wofire News.

She said that in 2010 she got a job as a store person and that gave her hope for a better future.

“My team supports me and I would like to thank WoF for the job opportunity. Now I can support my child and my family and I am planning to finish my studies.” she concluded.
