Taking part in South Africa Challenge 2014, was an eye-opening experience which saw me gain in confidence, become much more self-aware and understand what drives me. When I came back, I took on my final year of university with more determination, not just to achieve a 2:1 but also to make sure that I was making the most of the opportunities available to me. This led me to run a series of international competitions for young people, which launched in my final year. I have taken that attitude with me into my graduate career, which enabled me to land a job helping social enterprises and charities to succeed.
Returning as a team leader for South Africa Challenge 2015, gave me the opportunity to find what really drives me. The thing I enjoy the most about running South Africa Challenge is seeing how much people change how they view themselves and the world around them, enabling them to grow and develop as future leaders.
I am excited to work with the next cohort of Challengers and see what they will discover over the course of the South Africa Challenge!
