Below is an extract from a South African newspaper, discussing an entrant for a beauty pageant, to be honest I wasn’t too surprised to read that the girl was embarrassed that her dad was a lowly Taxi driver. but hadn’t considered that is probably the norm …… perhaps even within my own family?
Biopelo Mabe from Alexandra took her place among the 12 finalists for Miss South Africa 2017. A daughter of a taxi driver, Mabe said she was embarrassed by her father’s job.
“You know, being the daughter of a taxi driver was hard. I grew up embarrassed because of my dad’s profession but at some point I had to accept that this is what he does for a living.”
