Inspiring youngsters to dream big

I am a rising star from Kimberley in the Northern Cape. I am a song writer, rap- per, motivational speaker, I contribute to Hectic Nine-9 on SABC 2 and in the future I hope to be a whole lot more.

With all that I have been through and as young as I am, I never gave up on my dreams. I’m still striving to achieve my dreams.

What really disturbs me is to see how weak our youth can be. We tend to give up on life when things don't go our way and end up feeling like failures.

In my township many youngsters are wasting their time idling on street corners, robbing people, smoking and teasing others. They are not realising their potential because they have given up on life.

I want to motivate the youth to get up and keep pushing no matter how hard they fall. No matter where they come from, who they are, or what they believe in - they can still be what they want to be.

I want to remind the youth that we are the kings and queens of tomorrow. We are the hope for the future and God has a plan for each and every one of us. If something you want doesn't happen at right away, it does not mean that you don't have the ability to achieve it, it may be because it’s not your time yet! It takes time for good things to happen. I hope I have the power to change the mindset of my peers. In the end I want us all to be winners.
