Myan Moodley, Wild Coast Sun Resort and Casino general manager, opened with a powerful speech quoting the importance of education and the youth’s contribution to what South Africa will become in the future.
The most important speakers of the day were Akhona Bongwa, a 22-year-old slots technician intern who is finishing her tertiary qualification in electrical engineering, and the reigning Miss Eastern Cape, Zimi Mabunzi, who both serve as living testament that hard work and focus pays off.

Ntlantla Dlamini a Grade 12 pupil from Marelane Senior Secondary said she gained a lot from the speakers.
“I felt motivated knowing that I will be able to make a living after school not by only seeking a job, but by starting my own business creating employment for others.
“I will use the knowledge and skills from tertiary not only to further a career, but to develop South Africa,” she said.
