MOT Youth Blogger of the Month – Aydon Zinzan Jantjies
My name is Aydon Zinzan Jantjies and I am a confident fun-loving young adult that loves all things positive.
In the year 2018, I had the opportunity to attend the Young MOTivators Education. I was amongst 10 of my classmates that were youth leaders in my class.
At the camp, our walls were broken down. This was life-giving to me, seeing as I grew up without a father figure. As well as having almost no knowledge of how a man or father show be.
I learned to have the courage to show respect, love, and care for others, despite their background, and to include those left out. I learned to believe in myself and to take responsibility for my own life and my future.
I am grateful today for all the lessons and tools I have learned through the many group discussions and activities. These have helped me become a better role model to my peers.
Today I have a brighter future. Today I respect all no matter their background.
I am a better Man and feel fully confident that I will be a great father.
Thank you, MOT for changing my life for the better.
