Congratulations are in order for Nolwazi Shange. She has obtained a bachelor's degree in marketing communications.

The Safta-award-winning actress was beaming with pride as she shared images from her graduation.

“Years of study have culminated into this. Four years ago, I decided to study a new degree and today, I get to celebrate. It’s a bit of an emotional day, I won’t lie. I will find the words to express my feelings later. Inhliziyo yami igcwele ukubonga. Thank you for all the well wishes. I hold them dear to my heart," she wrote.

Since graduation season commenced in April, many celebrities have shared their academic achievements. 

Another thespian who recently celebrated her graduation is Kgabang Sekhabi, best known for her starring role as Shoki in's House of Zwide.

Kgabang obtained a BA in film and television from Johannesburg's Wits University and wore the gown her father donned when he graduated from the same institution 30 years ago.

Reflecting on her academic journey, Kgabang spoke of the challenges she overcame over the years and the impact they had on her physically, spiritually, and emotionally. 

“The person I am today is not the person I was when I first stepped through these university gates. I am so proud of the woman standing here today, boy is she strong and capable of anything she puts her mind to. She inspires me so much. Whenever I am low, I will look back on this day, on this journey, and I will pick myself up again the same way she had to, over and over again,” she wrote. 

“Oh gosh, there is so much I could say about the challenges I’ve faced throughout the years, and even days leading to this point. It’s been a mentally, physically and spiritually taxing journey, and there were many times when I really thought I wasn’t going to make it here. Thank you to my mom and dad, family and my friends for carrying me through till the end.”
