Simphiwe Dludlu, 30, is the current coach for the South Africa u17 national team and became the first former Banyana Banyana player to lead a team to a world cup when her team qualified for the u17 world cup to be staged in Uruguay later this year.

In this awe-inspiring interview the former Banyana Banyana captain talks us through her childhood, playing football in her school shoes to her call up to the Banyana Banyana training squad at a time when she didn’t have football boots to play.

With a fighting spirit that refuses to yield and an ability to jump over life’s hurdles at will Dludlu also known as “Shorty” is not only an inspiration to the nation but a national treasure with a story that embodies grace in the face of darkness. This grace sees her shine as a light house to a lost ship at sea to a nation that is perceptively deprived of role models.
