Bridgette Moopelwa

If I were elected mayor: I would develop new strategic plans for schools and organisations where there are young people focusing on motivational skills and programmes that interest youth. Bridgette is young, vibrant and mature beyond her years. She was raised by her grandmother in a house filled with siblings and cousins and finished her matric at just 16 years of age, thereafter becoming a volunteer mpintshi and then a groundBREAKER earlier this year. She intends studying electrical engineering at a technical college and is busy looking for a bursary for this. In the meantime she is working hard and saving us much as she can in order to put her- self through college. So far she has notched up computer skills and is inspiring all those around her by her positive attitude to life � and she is only just 18. Bridgette has been described as an outstanding leader, superb presenter, overachiever breaking target records, and is able to recruit and motivate volunteers at an extraordinary pace. Her phe- nomenal qualities were recently profiled at an Umsobomvu Youth Fund workshop where she was identified as one of the best presenters.
