Man becomes attorney of same court he had helped build as a labourer, many react

Reactions as Man who Worked as Labourer Becomes Attorney of Same Court He Helped Build, Photos go Viral, Humble beginnings are often the launching pad to great milestones.

This holds true for a South African man who took to social media to briefly share how he went from being a labourer to realising his dreams of becoming an attorney at a court he helped build with his own two hands.

Mpho Lebepe shared a post on his Facebook featuring two photos of himself.

The first, dressed in blue overalls at a construction site, and the second, formerly dressed as an attorney.

“I worked as a labourer during the construction of the High Court (Polokwane). Now I am representing my clients at the very same High Court as an Attorney. Your dreams are valid. Yours sincerely, Mpho Lebepe of Lebepe & Associates Inc,” he captioned the post.

His story is a reminder that everyone’s path to success starts somewhere and that with a clear goal in mind, nothing is impossible.
