I am a young determined, young leader who believes in social change. Growing up in the township, I was also able to rise above the challenges that our community face on a daily basis. I started to work as a garden boy while I was doing my high school levels in order to help my parents with school fees and other stuff. I went to study Tourism at the University of Western Cape. I then went to work for Cape Town Tourism, African Eagle Tours. I was part of the organising committee during the FIFA 2010 Soccer World Cup. Now, I am a tour guide and sharing my knowledge about Cape Town and Townships.
