“I am very enthusiastic about offering my skills and ideas during this exciting time for RedZebra Foundation. From brainstorming, to planning, to roll out, to implementation, I am eager to be with an organization that is dedicated to serving, supporting, and nurturing South Africa’s youth. “
I find inspiration from George Washington Carver’s quote, so as to do the positive work I am doing at RedZebra Foundation:
“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.”
