Creating a better Mzansi through sport and development

Never Understimate Your Abilities and Limite Yours

My name is Sifiso Mtsi from Orange Farm , 25 years old .


I raised by a single Parent who is my Mom, I was born with disability physical . my childhood was never easy when I grown up I came across many challenges that were destroying myself esteem from primary to secondary school. my peers were teasing me, making funny jokes about my disability. as a kid I couldn't know how to handle them. I end up isolating myself from other kids at school and home. because trying to run away from being teased by them, sometimes I would think to dropping out of school but I kept on pushing until I completed my matric in 2010 , then 2011 I did a course in end user computer and 2012 I enrolled to college to study sports club administration nqf level 4 and completed it.

I started to go back to community service is where I met YOUTHZONES in  2014 through eyethu united fc as I was tasked to handle eyethu united and youthzones friendship, is where I started to find my abilities through the worshops/trainings there gave us. started to get use of being around people, communicate , share life stories and market myself. I have also made myself friends and families through youthzones and past two years I being running school project of raising school shoes and stationary for unprivileged kids . I have experience lot of thing from life to business to sports. but most to empower me to business minded they introduced me to business by giving me businesses start up of selling aitime,eletricity etc as the did buy me the machine to do that and the perfume business.

through their mentorship I applied for a learnership at wits business and I am still in the program until august 2018 and currently I am an intern at wits school of governance for workplace experience , I am a adnmin support doing varies tasks in the office of wits school of governance from filing to data capturing to making phone calls to government officials.

what I want to say is that never allow your background to determine your future , keep your head up and focused remember to be humble and when you have successed go back to your community and help us ,
