Young blind man bags master’s degree in Law, achieves dream of becoming a lawyer

A young blind man named Thabang Manamela has finally achieved his dream of becoming a lawyer as he bagged a master’s degree from the University of Pretoria, South Africa.

Thabang Manamel was at birth partially blind and was diagnosed with glaucoma, which resulted in him losing his eyesight at an early age. He lost a substantial part of his eyesight but that did not stop him from achieving his dreams.

Manamel obtained his first bachelor’s degree in International relations and affairs from the University Of Pretoria and bagged his second degree in Law (LLB) from the same university.

During an interview with Sowetanlive, he mentioned that he managed to attend classes using a computer, but he found it difficult since he was already used to using Braille, a tactile writing system employed by individuals with visual impairments, including those who are blind, deafblind, or have limited vision.
