A woman in South Africa has been helping her niece to reach her dream to become a pilot.
KAMI learned that Doris Temba has turned to baking biscuits to raise funds for the aviation journey of her niece, Tshepang Ralehoko, whom she considers as her own daughter.
In a report by News24, Doris shared that Tshepang has had a dream of being a pilot ever since she was 4 years old.
Since the money for Tshepang’s flight school was almost running out, they had to think of ways for her to continue pursuing her dreams. They both thought of baking since they like doing it as well.
To their surprise, they started getting orders from netizens and started to raise funds. Tshepang’s determination to become a pilot was enough for them to continue the “biscuit drive.”
“She is so determined - I cannot let her down. She told me yesterday - giving up is NOT an option,” she wrote in her caption.
In another Facebook post, Doris explained that a pilot has to complete 500 hours of flight training to be considered for employment.
Tshepang has shared her thoughts on the efforts her mother and aunt have been doing to support her and her dreams.
"I feel very grateful. My mom and my aunt started teaching me to bake when I was four years old,” she said.
"I'm not doing this just for myself. I'm trying to create the drive to fund other people in the future that are also black and female,” she added.
Tshepang said she needed R60 000 to complete her private pilot's license, and then another R250 000 for her commercial pilot's license.
Doris said that Tshepang has been so passionate to pursuing her dreams.
"She is so passionate. You should see her eyes when she talks about aviation, she just changes," Doris said.
