May we as young people continue to do more to inspire others to remain inspired and driven.”
Taking to Instagram, Tumi Voster expressed herself by saying “Not only did I walk away with this prestigious award last night. But I also got to share a stage with the Gauteng Premier and the MEC’s – definitely a highlight!When I got the mail that I will be receiving an award – I couldn’t believe it. (Guess the smile says it all). To know that my work is being recognized to this level inspires me to do even more. The room last night was filled with various young people who have a powerful voice in their community and I was one of them. God is good. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise. Continue chasing those dreams! It’s so true, if your dreams don’t scare you, they are not big enough!
Thank you Gauteng government for celebrating the Youth of Gauteng, thank you for celebrating excellence..but most importantly thank you for recognizing my talent, uniqueness and voice! And well done to all the recipients! May we continue to do more to inspire other young people and to remain inspired & driven!”
