Skolopad - who works as a nurse in the  Free State - has had plans of becoming a doctor, but her dream has now been crushed by what she refers to as her boss.

Speaking to ZAlebs Skolopad revealed that her boss had promised to take her to school to further her studies, however, the boss has not lived up to the promise.

“They promised to take me to school this year but they didn’t so I’m not working with all my heart anymore and it’s not nice to work knowing that I’ve conditioned my mind that I’ll be out of the hospital for such a time and it’s not nice cause I don’t want it to affect my patient care.”

Skolopad added that it is with a broken heart that she comes to terms with her dream of becoming a doctor being tarnished as she had imagined that in ten years time - in her 40’s - she would be a doctor.

“I wanted to get a diploma and degree, I had told myself that maybe in ten years I would be getting my PHD in ten years time I had told myself that I would be a doctor...they promised me and I left a lot of opportunities in the entertainment side thinking that I would be in school this heart is broken.”

Skolopad went on to add that although she has since tried to contact the person - who she refers to as her ’boss’ - and hasn't received any response, she is upset as she will be starting from the beginning after putting her entertainment career on hold.

“It’s late, I was supposed to start on the eighth and when you try to speak to the person you agreed with he ignores you and does not answer you and treats you otherwise, I don’t like fighting with people...what he told me was that he has powers when I told him that I am number seven on the list and they only take four and he said that as long as I behave and gave me terms and conditions. That’s why I was quiet as Skolopad on social media…so when they said I should cover my bum I did…”

After missing out on many entertainment opportunities, Skolopad says that although heart-broken she is still hopeful after Dr Malinga approached her.

“It’s as good as me starting over now, so when this year Dr Malinga approached me, I felt hopeful, I’m thinking of relocating because the environment of which I work in is not the same as before and my I’m thinking of relocating and getting another job either in Johannesburg or Durban"
