“I Swallowed My Pride And Wear My Overalls Since Well I Can’t Get A Job” – Financial Accounting Graduate Turned Floor Layer



Unemployment continues to be a cause of great distress to development in many african countries.

Although, many African youths are well-educated, they are unable to practice what they studied in school because of their inability to get a job.

However, these youths are also not wallowing in self-pity, they are improvising ways to put food on their table and become a better person in their community.

A South-African young graduate, Keneilwe Ledwaba, on her twitter page, shared how she had to resort to flooring as she couldn’t find a job.

She said,

I did financial accounting I graduated this year May; I swallowed my pride wear my overalls since well I can’t get a job…my daily bread

We got to do something…we all born with great potentials if we can use them..the world would be a better place.
