Anele Masiza

My name is Anele Masiza. I live in Gugulethu with my mother and two sisters. I enjoy soccer with my friends but I spend most of my time with school work, so I don’t get to see them a lot. A lot of young people are on facebook and mixit but I don’t like that because it disrupts the mind. I would like to start swimming and I hope to join the EWB photography group.

My name is Ngekwazi Ngumbane and I am 14 years old. I live with my mother, grandmother, aunt and niece. We originally come from East London in the Eastern Cape. I am a very quiet and shy person who does not like to argue much. In my spare time I like to listen to music, read magazines and with my mother, watch TV programs that are based on the law. My role model is Judge Matthew because he is someone who likes to help people, has a great sense of humour, interprets people well and believes in the truth. I would like to be a lawyer like him so I can help people whose rights have been violated and cannot speak for themselves.

Education is the foremost thing required, because without it only defeats are acquired.

Education is a life-sustaining material, without it we can’t lead a life which is filled with knowledge.

Education, a person can stand on her own two feet, it helps a person fight their foes  and be defeated.

Education helps us to distinguish between what is right and what is wrong.

Education is like ping-pong.

Education is the key to success!
