It’s not surprising that young South Africans are looking at options outside the country for survival. If anything, it is more vital now than ever before to be constantly on the move. There is no satisfaction in settling for one side of the world when there is so much more out there to discover.

The main cry of course being youth unemployment on a ridiculous scale than it has ever been before. Not only are young people being pressured by society, family, friends, and life in general to become more, but our country does not have all the resources we may require. At this pointy in time, demand surpasses supply at alarming rates.

Plus, in terms of development, the internet has exposed us to a lot more than we imagined possible and South Africa is barely catching up, with the corruption; rates being on a high young qualified citizens are battling to find employment that’s reasonable or makes sense to what they studied.

On the other hand, white South Africans feel as though they have been completely sidelined and will have a more difficult time securing employment now more than ever.

We sure love our country, but we are battling to keep afloat with the lack of resources and opportunities given.

We should definitely explore options outside what we know, there is definitely a whole lot more out there.
