AFTER a tough childhood in Greytown, Arvesh Dheorajh is proud to be able to support his family.

Dheorajh, who is currently in Johannesburg, is a resident from Mispha Farm near Greytown. He recently received a top award for his excellence in customer service.

“I am currently working for Midrand Freshmeats (t/a) B Nagiahs Midrand. I have been with B Nagiahs for years, going on six. I am a meat technician by trade. I process carcasses of beef, lamb, pork and chicken.

“I recently was awarded for my customer service as we also deal with customers daily.

“I lived in Greytown, on Mispha farm. I lost my father at a young age, while I was in primary school, and my mother got sick after the loss of my father. We then relocated to eShowe, in Northern KZN. I schooled at Greytown Junior School and I went to high school at Sunnydale Secondary. While schooling, I moved to Durban. I worked for B Nagiahs in Bayview Unit 2 for around four months before I got a transfer to the Johannesburg store.

“The message I have for the youth is that the struggles out there are real but, if you believe in yourself, nothing is impossible.”
