I am super grateful to announce to you one of the greatest news ever- I am a young Mandela of the future (More like, present). News24 recognized me alongside other young South Africans for the 100 Young Mandelas of the Future. I am super grateful for the recognition and the love- and the nominations. Here is the link to my profile: https://mandela100.news24.com/media-grid/justice-sambo/.
In 2007, I had a chance to perform a play for Nelson Mandela- as Nelson Mandela. This role shaped me and made me who I am. This recognition goes out to each one of you for holding the dream with me.
What does this mean now for me? What does the future hold for me?
I believe in the power of the awaken youth. As a role model to some people, I want to continue to inspire a lot of other people through speaking my truth. In the next couple of months, alongside Berabose Aline and Naomi Mwangi (Co-founders of the African Dream Movement), I will be organizing a the African Dream tour. This will happen in multiple African Countries and I will be working alongside my beautiful sisters to hopefully raise the young person to realise that their dreams matter and are possible.
More info about the tour will be communicated as soon as it becomes available
