Angela Mogorossi from Rustenburg is a dynamic and passionate individual who likes to take on challenges and thrives off continuous change within an environment.
Why did you decide to be part of the ACTIVATE! Network?
I have always been part of youth networks within my community and through that I saw joining ACTIVATE! as an opportunity to further improve and build myself as an individual.
What did you enjoy the most about training?
The snake and ladder game. I thought it’s an easy game because we were the first team to win the game and it was a new record to the ACTIVATE! team ,only to find out that there’s a lot ahead of me. When we got to the second game I saw that I’ve been ignorant all this time because I got introduced to the map of Africa where I became more openminded.
How has training helped you or changed your perspective?
I’ve learned that everything is possible and that team work is the key to achieving success. I’ve also learned that I matter and my voice needs to be heard, well not only me but the youth is the most powerful force within any country.
What do you think the role of the youth is in developing the country?
The role of the youth is to be vibrant and active to achieve development within the country at large, to work as a team and not forget humanity as it is the key to human nature. South Africa is moving towards a new era in which the young people are beginning to make their own mark, whether it be on a social or the economical stage and I want to be part of that.
What is your field of interest?
Social and economic development
How would you like to drive change in your community?
I would like to educate and inspire, to be someone that people can look up to for advice or motivation.
Now that you have completed training, how do you plan to keep active in the network?
I am the network! So I believe it will be impossible for me to change who i am…I am the Change driver.
What are your plans for this year?
To reach my short term goal which is to run and manage a successful media company which I’ve already begun with my partners.
How will you be involving the network in your plans?
Basically what we busy working on shares the same vision with the network which is to connect,develop and entertain South African youth.
