We are proud of our Headgirl

BY

Yolanda Mni attended Die Burger Youth Leadership Conference in December. Mrs Snyman applied and we were thrilled when Yolanda was accepted for the conference. Here Yolanda Mni reports on her experience:  I was privileged to have gone to Die Burger Jeugsleierakonferensie at the end of last year as I've learnt and have been exposed to a high calibre of leaders in order for me to become a good leader. The theme of the conference was "Leierskap in die tegnologiese eeu". This was a very fascinating topic for us as youth leaders. We were introduced to different leaders in different fields who spoke to us about leadership. We also had to deliver speeches on the topic. It was enjoyable to hear everyone's views and opinions. I realised that today we are treating technology as a leader rather than a tool we as leaders can use to create solutions to problems we are faced with. My highlight of the conference was visiting Robben Island and The Leeuwenhof. At the Leeuwenhof, the residence of the Western Cape Premier, we met Mr Alan Winde, the Minister of Economic Development of the Western Cape. After our Q+A session with him, which was an eye-opener to the issues our country faces such as the standard of education, we had tea. After only a week of being together as youth leaders we had formed a bond, learnt so much from each other to be able to cope and lead effectively this year. This was an experience like no other and all I've learnt from it will forever be embedded in me and will help me in the future.
