We are thrilled to announce another incredible story for our MOT Blog of Grizelle Cloete, a Young MOTivator and MOT Youth Alumnus whose life has been positively impacted by the MOT Programme. Discover how MOT empowered Grizelle to overcome adversity and become a true inspiration to her community!
Hello, I’m Grizelle Cloete, an alumna of Northlink TVET College’s Goodwood Campus. In 2017, I became a part of the MOT Programme and was selected as one of the ten students from my campus to become a Young MOTivator.
MOT has helped me tremendously in my personal growth. Despite the negative experiences I went through, it has given me the courage to stand up for myself and pursue my aspirations. As a result, I’ve been able to maintain a positive outlook on life and become a role model for my children, classmates, and community.
During my free time, I’ve hosted several events for the youth and children in my community to help them focus on their dreams and goals while blocking out external distractions. One of the MOT tools that have helped me along the way is the Flashlight, which has enabled me to remain focused on the positive and find the strength to forgive and move forward.
“Without the MOT tools and stories I’ve learned through the programme, I wouldn’t have been able to achieve my goals.”
After being hit by a drunk driver and almost losing my life, MOT has been instrumental in helping me to overcome the challenges and emerge as a stronger person. Without the MOT tools and stories I’ve learned through the programme, I wouldn’t have been able to achieve my goals.
Today, I’m proud to say that I’ve completed my degree in Foundation Phase Teaching at the University of Western Cape, and I’m continually using my story and the MOT tools to inspire others to persevere and never give up.
