You can change the direction of your career path to pursue your passion. It is indeed possible, and can yield great rewards without any regrets.
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.
702's Phemelo Ngcobo (standing in for Azania Mosaka) spoke to her about taking a leap of faith by taking the road less travelled.

It was more about me finding my passion more than anything. It wasn't about the environment or the people.— Mandisa Nduli, former civil engineer
