On Freedom Day the 27th of April 2016, I Mpho Nyaka an ambassador for my hands and heart attended an event that was hosted by Afrika Tikkun. This event was themed The Legacy of Friendship. The event focused on the harsh realities of racism and the negative impact it has on us as individuals and on the country as whole. From this event I did not only gather knowledge on how to accept our differences as people but I also learnt event management skills, communication skills and the importance of self love and self identity. What made this event more fruitful to me was the presence of young people because after all we are the now and the future of this country and learning not to be racist at a young age will definitely have a positive impact in the future making us better people tomorrow.
