An­swer: I am an aer­o­bics in­struc­tor helps peo­ple im­prove their gen­eral fit­ness or train­ing for spe­cial events through in­di­vid­ual pro­grammes or classes.

A: No mat­ter the time, the class shows up. No mat­ter what hap­pened at work, what drama they had with their sig­nif­i­cant other or how stress­ful their day has been, they still show up. Their ef­fort is in­spir­ing.

I of­ten see a stu­dent get­ting into a pose they never thought they could or com­ing back from in­jury when they thought it was next to im­pos­si­ble.

The ex­pres­sion on their faces and the feel­ing and en­ergy that sur­rounds them is some­thing I can hold on to. Those are the mo­ments I re­mem­ber why I teach and it ig­nites in­spi­ra­tion. A: I want to achieve per­fec­tion in all the skills I have.

A: I would en­sure ba­sic ser­vice de­liv­ery. Res­i­dents only want jobs, elec­tric­ity, wa­ter and for all the pot­holes to be fixed. A: Fam­ily means the ones who will be be­side me no mat­ter what hap­pens, the most loved ones. The friends love me when I am strong and ef­fec­tive and dis­like me when I am weak and in­ef­fec­tive.

Ac­tu­ally, some good friends also count as fam­ily ac­cord­ing to this de­scrip­tion. Fam­ily are the peo­ple who stay be­side me even in the tough­est of times and the worst of the worst times.

A: Ways must be found to shift the labour mar­ket to be more friendly. One op­tion is “im­pact sourc­ing”.

This in­volves em­ploy­ers be­ing en­cour­aged to re­view their re­cruit­ment cri­te­ria to reach can­di­dates who might not nor­mally be seen as em­ploy­able.

A: Young peo­ple may eas­ily be over­whelmed by mod­ern-day pres­sures. They could get frus­trated. The great­est mes­sage I can give to young peo­ple is that they al­ways have a choice and you can al­ways do some­thing to change a sit­u­a­tion.

A: Yes. Our coun­try bred a man who was not only re­spon­si­ble for chang­ing the his­tory of our own coun­try, but of the world as well. Noth­ing says proudly South African more than the mem­ory of this iconic hero, the late Nel­son Man­dela.
