FROM ADVERSITY TO UNIVERSITY

I WENT TO A SCHOOL THAT REALLY TAUGHT ME A LESSON.

It was a lesson in challenging the odds, the power of positive people and the things that can be made possible when opportunity is within reach.

The team and I travelled to meet a principal and one of his genius past students. I don't want to spoil the documentary, so I'll keep it quite vague.

In a nutshell, these two men told us a story of reviving hope and results in a school that was in disarray. Through persistence, vision and determined action, the school not only reprieved itself, it also gave an opportunity to a student who was so incredibly talented that his circumstances couldn't hold him back.

It's a story that FMI helped to make possible, and stands as something I'm really proud of. Looking back on the amazing day in Kraaifontein, and the story we heard, it makes me wonder how much talent is wasted because there's no opportunity to support it. I suppose that's why we all have to try and give what we can.

I can't wait for the full story to be released, so keep your eyes peeled!

Yours in life done better
