One such group that deserves all of the applause, are these seven young friends who have all qualified as doctors together at the University of Free State.

One of the women, Tshepang Motete told Timeslive, “In our class there were probably 130 students, with only nine black girls, so we grew closer because we could relate to each other”.
The women, Moliehi Mareka, Mahlatse Mothiba, Tshepang Motete, Thato Mosehle, Toni Motseoile, Lungile Mkhungo and Lijeng Lefosa told Timeslive "“We are prepared for anything and everything; our MBChB prepared us for the worst. We are confident that we will be able to handle whatever comes our way,”.
This is an amazing achievement that should not be taken lightly. For most of these girls, they are the first in their families to became doctors. A shining example of how other young black women can support, push and help each other achieve great things.
Speaking of young, beautiful and absolutely fabulous girlfriends we also consider to be the ultimate power squad goals.
1. Bonang Matheba, Lorna Maseko and Pinky Girl
If ever there was a power trio, this is one.
And they're all successful in their own right. Now known as reality TV's new breakout star, Pinky Girl is more than just Bonang's assistant and cousin. She's an IT specialist and a new show with her in the lead may just be on the cards.
Lorna Maseko, a former ballet dancer and choreographer has a new cooking channel on Youtube. It's called Lorna With a Pinch of Salt.
Bonang needs no introduction...
2. Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé from Destiny's Child
Although they are no longer a group, they are still friends. As another trio, these ladies brought us some of the greatest anthems such as Survivor and Soldier, and continue to leave us empowered.
3. Pearl Thusi, DJ Zinhle and Lerato Kganyago

Maybe it’s meant to be that part of this speech is missing... @stillsbytom battery went flat. ???? . Anyway... I tried to avoid this because I’d already thanked her earlier in the evening but there were complaints and they led to this. In a nutshell - I thanked her for loving me in ways that I didn’t know a friend could. Then I ugly cried, and couldn’t stop. ???????? . I love you so much babe. So much. @djzinhle .
From designer watch lines to international TV shows, the sky is the limit for this power squad.
4. Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kylie, Kendall and their super mom Kris Kardashian
As much as we love to hate the Kardiashian/Jenner clan, we must admit that all of these sisters have managed to make waves in the fashion, beauty and reality tv industry. Their drive is nothing other than admirable.
Who runs the world? Girls!
