Man who failed in school graduates with 27 distinctions from varsity

Xolani Mzileni, 26, from Katlehong has an amazing story of how he struggled in school, failing at one point, to eventually end up with 27 distinctions from varsity.

He is currently attending a masters student course in Operations Management at the University of Johannesburg.

His childhood was not easy, growing up in a township with very little in the way of services, no running water, healthcare facilities, proper housing and other essential services.

He began to realise his academic potential in Grade 11, which he failed,

Wothappen.com learned that instead of giving up, Xolani repeated Grade 11 and eventually matriculated in 2013. He took a gap year from studying to sort out an issue with his ID book and worked as a day labourer.

His dream was to attend university and help the community, he joined a tutoring programme in his community and taught life sciences and geography.

He decided to try applying for university and was successful and got a spot at the University of Johannesburg and enrolled in a diploma in a Management Services course.

Things were not easy, with no funding he was forced to sleep in lecture halls for three months and was lucky enough to get food from the Gift of the Givers (GOG).

For his 2016 semester, he maintained an 85% average and went on to rack up a number of significant awards such as the diploma in Management Services and the Golden Key International Honour Society for being amongst the top 15% students in the University of Johannesburg.
