One Day Leader Bio

23-year old Lesley Masibi is a BSc (Hons) Chemical Engineering graduate from Wits University. Lesley says "I dream of a South Africa, governed by the rule of law and the respect for that law".

"I'm an individual who believes in excellence and hard work. I'm disciplined, dedicated and determined to become a better person, who can contribute towards making our society a better place. In line with that, my purpose is to empower and encourage young people to take responsibility for their lives.

"I am involved with a wide range of youth from all over South Africa in programmes that educate young people, especially high school learners, with skills and knowledge that call for their transformation into focused, economically and politically active young South Africans. My involvement with my community is helping to change or influence young people."

On his vision as a leader he says "My dream is for a South Africa that is safe, where there is equitable distribution of wealth and opportunities. I dream of a South Africa governed by the rule of law and respect for that law, a South Africa which we can all be proud of, a South Africa where our leaders lead with integrity, honesty and true principles of democracy.

"I dream of a South Africa where all live above the poverty line, where freedom of choice is not limited to race, where you come from or who you know, a nation where the citizens are the truest leaders.

"Our government is slack on heeding the plea of South Africans, pleas for service delivery, pleas to be heard and taken seriously.

"South Africa is one of the highest HIV/AIDs rated in the world and thousands continue to die. Though there is medicine that can improve lives, many die in hospitals because either they do not have medical aid or because of poor service delivery, this cannot continue.

"South Africa cannot reach her true potential until its people are the main concern of our leaders. South Africa has great potential to become one of the major leading economies and nations in the world.

"There is still so much more that we can offer the world as a nation, I dream of a South Africa which will truly represent Africa on world stages, not only in name, but in influence and power, i.e. a permanent seat in the UN Security Council.

"Equally, I dream of a South Africa that will be the picture of what true brotherhood is (especially with other African countries), a society that promotes and instils principles of humanity and respect for human rights, a society that is economically sound, morally strong and a truly democratic society."
