Youth story of the month: MOT SA

Aydon 5

My name is Aydon Zinzan Jantjies and I am a confident fun-loving young adult that loves all things positive.

In the year 2018, I had the opportunity to attend the Young MOTivators Education amongst many of my classmates that were youth leaders in my class.

At the camp, our walls were broken down. This was life-giving to me, seeing as I grew up without a father figure and had almost no knowledge on how a man or father show be.

I learned to have the courage to show respect, love, and care for others, never mind their background and to include those that are left out. I learned to believe in myself and to take responsibility for my own life and my future.

I am grateful today for all the lessons and tools I have learned through the many group discussions and activities that have helped me become a better role model to my peers.

Today I have a brighter future. Today I respect all no matter their background.

I am a better Man and feel fully confident that I will be a great father.

Thank you, MOT for changing my life for the better.
