The fight was so we could have our freedom, to give strength and example that when fighting for the greater good, you may not win the battles but the war will be won. My children and children’s children will enjoy the fruits of it all. 🤍🤍🤍 #freedom #happyyouthday #simplylive #simplylove #sumplyenhle #EmpressEnhle.

Happy Youth Day South Africa!

Amongst many other things this pandemic has taken away like physical touch, the one thing I really miss is being able to attend talks where I got the opportunity to share my story and inspire the youth.
I reflect back to a few years ago when this picture was taken. The sad reality is, that the unemployment rate is increasing and the hospitality industry is on a decline so we have to do whatever we can to help the youth of today keep their dreams alive.

My partnership with Defy is all about believing in better. This year we are contributing to The Franschoek Hospitality Academy. We are hoping to raise enough funds so that more youngsters can get an opportunity to go to school and pursue their culinary passions.

If you would like to help, click the link in my bio to see what it’s all about and how you can assist.

Mamkhize

Slaying as always, Mamkhize began her day by honouring the youth of 1976 and acknowledging their sacrifices. “On this special day may we never forget the sacrifice it took for us to get to where we are today. It took blood, sweat and tears for us to enjoy the freedom we have today”, she said in part.

Shauwn then spent her day with young and aspiring soccer players to give them the hope that they need to keep chasing their dreams. “To the youth of South Africa, I know things are far from perfect right now. But when I see how some kids are being raised and groomed into leaders, it gives me so much hope that the future of this country is bright.”

I had the privilege of meeting these future Royal AM players and it just reminded me and reaffirmed the dreams and aspirations we have for this team.

The future is yours!!!!
