How would you describe yourself in 10 words or less?

Ambitious person chasing his passion, with a smile on his face!

Favourite quote:

Follow your passion and success will follow you.

Why did you get involved in your community?

I have a love for dance that I channelled through Tru Streetdance.

What is your project about and when did it start?

We started our project in November 2009, and it is about training a group of eight young people to become leaders within Tru Streetdance.

What difference has your project made, and to who?

Our project has equipped the 8 young people with the knowledge of how to run their own business, and become role models and leaders within the community.

How do you inspire other people to get involved, and who have you involved?

We run regular open classes that are open to the public in which we inspire young people through the art form of dance.

What has been your most memorable experience in your project?

Personally I would say the accomplishment I feel when I inspire young people through teaching them dance!

Where do you see your project going and how will you stay involved?

I see our project leading to greatness and hopefully not only having the 8 young people come through and run the business but having new young people after that doing the same.

What’s the most important lesson you’ve learnt during your experiences?

To gain respect, show respect!

What qualities does it take to be a good leader?

Confidence and a strong mentality as well as aspirations and people skills.

What do you feel inspired to do in the future and where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years?

I see many possibilities; who knows what one it would be? But I do know they all lie within the arts of dance and acting.
