Mpisane chronicled her journey on Instagram where she has become a fitness icon with over 870 000 followers. The highlight of her degree she said, was her final year as all her lecturers were very supportive and understanding while she juggled her social life, work life and private life.
Mpisane also found support from students in class and the friends she made during the years at university. Expressing gratitude to her support system, she said: "I want to give a big thank you to my parents for always believing in me and my friends for always keeping me sane after a long stressful week at campus."
Her advice to other students? "My advice...is that they always find a balance that works for them. Have fun while studying and your academic years will feel shorter".
