Christill Cave: Zareef Minty

  • Tell us about your background?

My Child hood wasn't as easy as some people think. I was born in Port Shepstone and grew up in Durban. I'm a 23-year-old young World Changer/Business woman who made a decision to live a purpose driven life. As young as I may be, God instilled in me power, knowledge and wisdom to become the person I am today and who I'm still going to be. My grandparents and mother have played a very vital and big role in the lady I am today and I'm forever grateful.

I have always been very different from my peers. I grew up reading, writing and had so much eager to know more about business and how I can be able to change the world and get more young people involved.

  • Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

HAHA! Have built an empire for as many young people as possible that call themselves "World Changers " not only that but Living a purpose driven life. Fulfilling what God has assigned me to do here on earth.

I have a feeling by then we would have changed at least half of what the world is preserved to be viewed right now. It really isn't about me at all, in the next 5 years I want to see World Changers from all over the country uniting and work in towards changing the perception of how we should live in order to be successful.

  • What made you start World Changer?

When I was still a student in high school I was involved in a lot of leadership and debating movements, this is when I discovered that I'm quite good when it comes to public speaking and my views where different from the other pupils because I just had that hunger to change the world, so my topic on that day when I was speaking was " Changing The World As Young People " after that a lady from the United States said to me "Christill Cave YOU ARE A WORLD CHANGER AND YOU WILL DEFINITELY CHANGE THE WORLD "

From there a lot of people started calling me World Changer and I believed I am. Then I started World Changers as a campaign under my organization "Youth in Action Africa "

  • How did Youth in Africa come about?

Ha-ha, honestly speaking this was a gift from God. After finishing my program with Junior Achievements South Africa, I was so inspired to continue engaging and working with the youth. This led me to enhance my leadership skills and equip World Changers.  YIAA was founded in 2009 when I was 16 years old.

  • I believe you are an author as well, tell us more?

YESSSSSSSS! I love reading and writing and my book is definitely going to inspire not only local pupils but globally it's going to impact many lives young and old. I'm soon to launch once everything has been done people will know more about it. BUT I have always been a very critical thinker and most of the time I get inspired to write more than I do with speaking. There are people who can express themselves by voicing out and there are some people like me who can express themselves through pen and paper.

  • What advice do you have to young women out there?

Want promotion? Make yourself promotable! Do what is in your power to add value to yourself. Sharpen your current skills and add some new ones. Develop your character---integrity, personal discipline, kindness, communication, people reading, adaptability, flexibility---these are just a FEW thing that will cause you to rise to the top of the pile. See yourself in the role you desire. Dress like the job you want to have. Speak in the way you will need to in that new season. Take initiative and go above and beyond---don't worry about getting paid for it right now, move by faith into the future you desire. Become promotable and you WILL be promoted!

Also Standing out is a lot more fun than fitting in.

  • What is your ultimate goal?

Serving God. I'm nothing without him in my life.

  • What is the one quote you live by?

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams "
