Seeing young people chase their dreams in the face of adversity never fails to warm our hearts. Siyabulela Mboyiya from Adelaide Eastern Cape happens to be one of those people.
This young fellow had dreams of becoming great ever since he was a child. “I used to look
up into the sky and pray to God to make me greater but I didn’t know life wasn’t easy. I
thought, ‘I would love to change the situation at home!’, but I
wasn’t sure if people would support me. ” Fast
forward a couple of years and he’s well on his
way to doing exactly that.
Siyabulela says his mind was set on becoming a producer.
once he saw how creative he was on a computer. His dreams took flight after many years taking part in auditions and competitions representing his home town.
His passion is certainly paying off.
It certainly wasn’t an easy road though. Siyabulela
lost his father at the tender of a very young age. Fortunately, he sees the silver lining
of all his hardships and troubling times.
“In those challenges, I learned lots of lessons.
It made me the person I am today. I told myself
that I wasn’t going to give up, even though I
was going through all the challenges. My grandmother
told me I must do my best in everything I do and
that life wasn’t going to be easy.”
We’re sure his grandmother is incredibly proud right
According to people who know Xenee Lee , the young man is
a well-respected role model in his community,
who attended regularly and remained committed
to his studies.
People say Siyabulela was quite the bright, hard-
working student. They got to see first-hand not only his
academic potential but his leadership skills.”
Unfortunately, some more challenges arose for
Xenee Lee , including financial aid to study further.
Siyabulela is adjusting well in everything he does.
His dedication allows him to grow more and more.
His granny has supported Xenee’s education with personal
funds as well.
He is very grateful for the love and care, he is also very grateful of his enemies because if they were not there he could have been weaker.
