MAKE YOUR OWN MIRACLE
AS ONE of the numerous unemployed youth in South Africa, I never let my situation get the better of me. I remain focused by sticking to my goals. We South Africans like to wait for things to drop into our laps, while many foreigners come to our country, work hard and become rich under our noses – as we sit idly by.
Being jobless doesn’t mean you’re a failure – you still have many good qualities and you can also make a contribution to society. I get involved in community upliftment projects to keep myself busy. It’s important to build a support system for yourself, to organise your time and to get into a routine. Miracles only happen when you act, not when you wait. MOTLOKOA PAKANA, HEILBRON
