Social Entrepreneur and JASA Alumnus 2008
Everyone has potential; unleashing that potential reveals how great a young person can be.
Junior Achievement taught me about life skills, the norms and values of greatness and what entrepreneurship is. It taught me about personal branding and how I should represent myself as a brand, everywhere I am. Through JA I learned how I could run my own business, offering innovative solutions to media and branding.
I have a vision to inspire and empower young and old minds to be the greatest they can be. By discovering that I have leadership skills I now know that I have a responsibility to deliver on my vision. Knowledge is power and JA is a platform that aims to inspire young minds to better themselves.
Waking up on Saturdays each week and going to the programme meant that I was planting a seed for greater ventures. I have carried this discipline through to my studies in Organisational Psychology and Anthropology as JA proved to me that everybody has potential and that it is when that potential is realised that success is guaranteed.
I can confidently say that JA inspires and motivates young minds to be greater than they could ever imagine.
