- South Africa
I am a current student at the Cornerstone Institute and registered for a BA degree in Sociology and Psychology. I aspire to change the world and make it a better place. I detest racism, GBV and Femicide.
I am also an unapologetic proponent of transformation and inherently value the practice of servant leadership. I thus think that only a certain set of skills and behavioural traits including an unwavering commitment to serve are required to help encourage a paradigm shift to change the world. One female moral leader of her people, a visionary and selfless colossus of black freedom who led ahead of her time, Charlotte Maxeke, inspires me greatly to this extent. She once said, “This work is not for yourselves. Kill that spirit of “Self” and do not live above the people, but live with them. If you can rise, bring someone with you. Do away with that fearful animal of jealousy. Kill that spirit and love one another as brothers and sisters’’. Maxeke was a God-fearing scholar, gender activist and proponent of democratic education, continent and beyond. I always draw wisdom to serve, from her noble deeds.
