I do not see White, Black, Indian or coloured, all I see is South Africans united in our diversity – Congress of the people Youth President
I always had a passion for helping people, it gives me much joy to know that I made life easier for someone else. I always put other people’s needs before my own needs.
I always give it my all in helping other people. It makes me proud. I am a flexible person.
I have practised ubuntu many times (I prayed in a mosque before with muslims). I have had supper with my fellow Zulu friends, and I continue to visit people from various cultures so that I can learn from them and see life from various viewpoints which in the end will make me a better South African and a better politician.
I would like to empower the Youth. I want to be an icon of hope to them. I want to show them that there is hope for them in South Africa. I want to show them that they can achieve whatever they dream of in life, all they have to do is set goals and continue to push to achieve them.
Failure is a normal part of life. Do not give up. We learn from our failures in life and it make us so much stronger. Have faith in yourself, do not look down upon yourself. You are beautiful just the way you are, and God never makes ugly things.
You are perfect just the way you are, do not worry about what others will think or say about your decisions. If you desire to do something in life, JUST DO IT. Life is too short to hold back.
I do not see White, Black, Indian or coloured, all I see is South Africans united in our diversity.
May the racists fall.
May the constitution that was born at CODESA be prosperous.
May the dream of Nelson Mandela be achieved of a non-racist, non-sexist South Africa where we all can live in harmony.
I will do everything I possibly can to make South Africa a better place for our Youth. I will go the extra mile.
God bless South Africa!
Nkosi Sikileli I-Afrika
God seen Suid-Afrika!
