What inspires you?
Nature inspires me. Any time spent outside I feel rejuvenated and ready for anything. The beauty of nature around me also drives me to do my bit to preserve it!
Why did you choose to be part of Project 90 Leadership Clubs as a mentor?
I think that Project 90 is an awesome initiative doing real good for not only the environment but the people in communities of South Africa. I wanted to join the organisation to be able to contribute any skills I have and also to learn and grow as much as possible. Being a mentor means I get to work with fellow young, enthusiastic individuals who are working towards making us the green generation!
Have you attended activities organised by the Club and the Project 90 team?
I have attended a Clubs Summit as well as a mentor workshop. I thought they were both well organised and fairly well attended. I left with a clear idea of what being a mentor entails and a better grasp of Project 90’s mission.
What are the benefits for you to be a Project 90 Leadership Club Mentor?
Meeting like minded young people who have a similar passion to make a difference. Being a mentor gives one experience in working with a nationally recognised organisation and allows you to grow as a leader. Working with and shaping the ideas of school children around Cape Town is extremely exciting and the opportunity to learn and be party of innovation is a huge benefit!
As a Project 90 Club Mentor how do you see yourself as a leader?
Definitely, being a mentor you are a leader for your club but you are also nurturing and encouraging leadership amongst the members of your clubs.
In your personal life are you taking action to reduce your personal carbon footprint?
Yes, in my personal life I do my best to be aware of my carbon footprint all the time. I try to reduce the amount of waste I generate by reusing as much as possible and making sure to recycle any waste. I carpool to university and have been a vegetarian for three years.
Are you part of other organisations related to the environment?
I am part of the Green Campus Initiative (GCI) at UCT where I am a committee member and take responsibility in helping students get involved in outreach programmes such as the Project 90 Leadership Club.
