Mandisa Nduli: From civil engineer to yoga instructor

Mandisa Nduli did a 180 degree turnabout when she changed her career direction.

In today's edition of 'Young Voices', she shares how she left the very technical industry of civil engineering to work in a very different field, as a yoga instructor.
