After reading the article in DRUM’s 31 August issue, “Mzansi’s new star”, many of us learnt that living with a disability isn’t an excuse not to do your best. It’s pleasing to see Ntando Mahlangu succeed despite his disability, to achieve what even people who don’t have disabilities have failed to achieve.
Ntando won us a gold medal in the T42 (amputees) 100m event at the recent 2017 World Para Athletics Junior Champion-
ships in Nottwil, Switzerland.
A big thumbs up for our new Mzansi star. As a nation we are proud of his glorious victory.
The article showed us that as long as you dream big, believe in yourself, follow your dreams and work hard you can achieve anything, just like Ntando.
Young people who live with a disability should discover their God-given talents and let them shine. They shouldn’t allow their condition to discourage them.
God has laid a plan for them so they can succeed and accomplish their goals. If God is with them who can be against them?
Ntando’s greatest achievement isn’t a miracle or luck but the result of hard work and effort to achieve his best. ANDRIES RORO KABINI, ROCKVILLE
