Katlego Lekalakala not only makes people feel better as a medical doctor but she also makes them feel beautiful on the most important days of their lives. | AnElectricLady

The 25-year-old from Pretoria took her medical oath on Saturday, with four distinctions to her name, after working for years as a highly sought-after make-up artist.

"I didn't see myself nor did I aspire to be a make-up artist until my third year in varsity, when my family started struggling financially and I had to start making means to fund a lot of my expenses. Make-up artistry became the answer to my financial struggles, only to later find out that I'd love it as much as I do and I would be as good as I've become," she said.
