I am a Youth Mobilization and Motivation Speaker, my forte includes inspiring the youth through innovative techniques including sharing personal experiences and elaboration on certain success techniques employed by myself and many other successful entrepreneurs and academics in the world.
I constantly speak to the youth regarding pressing issues like self worth, equality and education, topics which need to be discussed but due to socio economic circumstances are not. I engage the youth in the Alexandra Township in Johannesburg, South Africa with help from the Locally established Parliament – ‘The Leopards Group’ and inspire them to aspire to their dreams. In addition to this I aim to guide and motivate young talented individuals who are in Matric or at University in ascertaining their goals and ensuring that their dreams manifest into reality.
Having only matriculated in 2014 and recently passed first and second year at Varsity in 2015 and 2016 respectively, I am relatively well acquainted with the youth and their aspirations, having been an active part of evolving with a large group of students, I can relate to and elaborate on their dreams, goals and concerns thus being able to connect with the most influential group of our population and hopefully become a driving force of enthusiasm towards realizing those goals.
Charitable work has been an integral part of my life. I have always given a great importance to giving back and doing service for the community for I strongly believe that empowering those in need of empowerment breaks the shackles of helplessness and opens up new intriguing windows of possibility. For me, serving our community transcends just doing good, it is more a natural activity that has formed part of my day to day routine, for the feeling of accomplishing to eradicate the emptiness, helplessness and loneliness in an other’s life surpasses all lust for wealth and fame.
For this very reason, I am partnered with some of the world’s and South Africa’s most well reputed NGO’s and NPO’s. For as Mahatma Gandhi once said: ‘Be the change you want to see on the world.’ for without truly embracing service one cannot truly make a tangible difference.
I am am an Ambassador for Afrika Tikkun’s and Chairman of the Afrika Tikkun Junior Council. Afrika Tikkun is one of South Africa’s most accomplished and prestigious NGO’s and has changed the lives of countless South Africans in need of help since it’s conception in 1994. Tikkun has various centre’s across SA’s most impoverished areas consistently delivering on their promise for holistic development and change.
As their ambassador, I aim to move the dialogue of change to an action of change by making use of: ‘Social norms as a device for radical social change.’ I help develop campaigns which use Tikkun’s Cradle to Career Initiative to take a child from infancy until that child is in a well rounded individual job. Thus breaking the cycle of unemployment and etching in a new era of dedicated professionals. www.afrikatikkun.org is a game changing web page which allows every single person in the world to become an imperative part of a change which has only ever been up as a topic of discussion.
Together with this, I am the Communication Head for Food for Life Sandton. This organization is a branch of the world renowned Food for Life global food relief program which distributes over 1 million plates of FREE food every single day. Food for Life is the largest registered non-profit food relief organization in the world. FFL SA aims to become the largest vegetarian food relief program in SA. I am honored to be a part of this organization as it is privilege to be able to bring hope to the lives of those who have lost faith in the concept of hope completely. Having originated from the massive ISKCON or International Society for Krishna Consciousness movement, FFL shares principles of equality, diversity and purity, principles which aid in the deliverance of good.
Be the change, you wish to see in the world – Mahatma Gandhi (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi)
Here my role involves ensuring that people are aware of the good we do and influence others to come and indulge in the greatness we have to offer to our community through the medium of communications available to us.
