here used to be a time when not having a university degree meant that the possibility of you succeeding in life was pretty slim, but these days that’s far from the case
Now, we’re not for one second advising anybody to drop out of school: education is a privilege and those who are lucky enough to have the opportunity to pursue it should make the most of it.
However, sometimes you just don’t get the opportunity to finish your course (and sometimes you don’t even enrol at university) and you just have to make the most of the opportunities that life hands you instead.
Thankfully, there are several South African celebrities that you can look to for inspiration.
Here are a few stars that made it big despite not having a varsity qualification
1. Minnie Dlamini
Minnie was studying film, media, drama and economics at UCT but she de-registered so that she could move to Joburg and pursue her TV career.
She says she is thinking of doing Bcomm Marketing, just to do the business side of things.
