One Day Leader Bio

21-year old Sebenzile Nkambule is a B.A. Journalism graduate from the University of Pretoria.

Sebenzile says "It is our responsibility to let our own light shine and give other people permission to do the same. My purpose is to inspire people to be free and confident to do what they are meant to do, by seeing me do what I have been called to do.

"I am a writer, a poet, soon to be journalist, a leader, a feminist and a humanist. Through these 'identities' and being true to each one, I influence and promote social change.

"If you educate a woman, you educate a community, so my purpose is to uplift, educate, help and inspire as many women and girls that I can because that will inevitably lead to social change and ameliorating social ills.

"My dynamism, eloquence, energy, genuine care and love for people, intelligence and eagerness to learn are meant to serve society through leadership."

On her vision as a leader she says "I dream that South Africa will one day be among the countries with sustainable economic growth, that we will understand our role in SADC and start being more regionally based in our decision making.

"I hope someday we will all be able to sit at a table and share our opinions without disrespecting anyone and wanting to be right all the time.

"We are a nation that needs to look beyond colour and seek unity in our struggles because more often than not, our differences are skin-deep. I know that someday we will get to a place where leaders are elected because of their competence and ideas about change, not just according to whom they know.

"Grand ideas of reconciliation and transformation can only be realised truthfully in our day-to-day interactions and not just on relevant public holidays.

"I dream of a South Africa that will have more people working than people living on grants! I know we can achieve a South Africa that respects women and that does not breed abusers and chauvinists, a South Africa that respects cultures, difference, choice, life, nature, sexual preference and political affiliation, a South Africa that does not have broken people walking around daily, barely surviving.

"Our education system is a joke and what are we if we are poorly or not educated at all? My dream is for the South African identity to be true for all who choose to own it and not just for black people.

"All of this starts in our day-to-day interactions with one another, with us losing our attitudes of apathy, living and truly embodying Ubuntu and the spirit of being an African.

"We can, if we make the effort come together as human beings. Not as comrades, not as feminists, not as soccer players, or as Afrikaners, but as mere human beings sharing this beautiful land we live on.

"That is my dream for South Africa."
