It’s been an exciting and rewarding year for me personally, but also in my new position as the head of The President’s Award for Youth Empowerment. I’m so incredibly fortunate to witness the growth, development and blossoming of South African youth through the vehicle of The President’s Award. Everyday I’m once again reminded of the prosperous future of our great country simply by interacting and sharing with young people.

The opportunity, though overwhelming at times, comes with great responsibility. The onus rests on me, as the leader of this great organisation, to play an active role in ensuring that we deliver the very best in South African youth, and that’s a responsibility I don’t take lightly.

The President’s Award is part of a monumental movement in the history of our great nation and I’m so blessed to be a part of it. It is my wish that every young person who enrols on the Award Programme will succeed in more ways than they could ever have imagined. We look forward to an exciting 2016 through the Award Programme!
