Johana had to live with the consequences of the wrong choices she made in her teen years. She was a mother to two children at the age of 21, had dropped out of school when she was in grade 10 and then sold doilies to provide for her children.
After Mmaserole attended Good Friday at Ellis Park Stadium in 2011, she found inner healing from the pain of losing her mother and grandmother within two years. She was also able to forgive the father of her child who abused her.
The emotional abuse she suffered by her parents and the physical abuse she later endured in a relationship turned Sarafina into a heartless monster. Her parents treated her differently from her siblings and she had to earn the things they bought her for school.
