I was introduced to the Award at The President's Award - SOUTH AFRICA For The Youth Empowerment . In my school , Reitumetse High School. I become the Youth Leader in 2020 before the outbreak of Covid 19.
I embarked on my Bronze Award last year but I couldn't continue with since I was distress with COVID-19. This year I had to re-do it again as I'm

currently working on my bronze and I'm still the Youth Leader of Reitumetse High School. Even though I come from under resourced background I'm not POOR because POOR means PASSING OVER OPPORTUNITIES. I have learned the art of survival, shared responsibility, service and self-reliance. Since I joined this programme I always strive to push myself to go over and beyond my call of duty. I challenge people to push beyond their limits and lead by examples, virtues I learnt in the Award. As a volunteer of the Award I put my best foot forward and take charge of my team.

The Award has challenged me with necessarily skills that I don't find in class setting . And also challenged me with to do public speaking of which it was something I was afraid of ; I lacked confidence

The Award equipped me for life. Thank you our Founder for giving us a platform to discover ourselves. A platform to make a difference for ourselves, our communities, our country and the world.

Let us all take after the tenets of the Award and be the change so much needed in the world.
