Mthethwa, an example to other challenged kids, said: “Praying and working hard are the keys to my success.

Not to compare myself to anyone is one of the most important lessons I’ve ever learnt. I exhort pupils to keep working toward their objectives in spite of their impairment. Everything is possible if you have faith in yourself.

At the university’s spring graduation, Mthethwa was one of 15 graduates with disabilities who obtained degrees.
