Support my One Day Leader campaign

2015-12-20 12:46

Greetings everyone, I am pleased to announce that I recently made the Top 20 of the One Day Leader reality show which will air in February 2016. I know that I am still many miles away from reaching the Top 12/Top 10 and eventually the Top 6 but reaching the Top 20 is an achievement on its own. I strongly believe in the concept that a leader doesn't really need a platform to do great work for society and the country at large but having over 1 million people supporting you and your work will really allow your organization or foundation to grow and progress a lot faster. A progression of your ideas and solutions would be the ideal result of gaining the opportunity of being a part of the One Day Leader show.

Please find below my basic bio:

Zareef Minty is a 21 year old, LLB student at the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa. Zareef is a thought leader and innovator. Zareef became the youngest national youth president in South African history at the tender age of just 19. He ran in the 2014 national general elections where he was 5th on the party’s parliamentary candidates list. Zareef is a motivational speaker, where he speaks at schools around South Africa every fortnight. He also writes for the largest online news agency in South Africa called News 24, he contributes articles based on politics, law, business and current events nationally and globally. He also writes for TeenZone which is a major teen magazine in South Africa, his articles and pieces are based on lighter topics like love, relationships and self-improvement.

Zareef Minty made the Mail and Guardians Top 200 Young South Africans under 35 list in 2014 under the politics category. The Mail and Guardian is one of the most competent and reliable newspapers in South Africa.

Zareef has made huge waves in the transparency of management regulations for students.

Zareef wrote a book called EMPIRE, which made a lot of buzz in South Africa. It is about the youth and their mind set, it teaches young people tips on how to improve their mind set in such a way that they will be attracting positivity and success to them. Some of the chapters topics are Networking, Don’t take no for an answer, be your biggest critic…etc.
