Short description about yourself:
I am a young male, working on his dreams, to be a man of value to my country; I am a man of Integrity, and my word is my honor!

What will your contribution be if you should become MR. South Africa:
Many people always say, they will do so many things, but in fact they don't always step up to their promises; Integrity to me, is very important, and therefore, what I say, I mean, and If I mean it, I will do it; My contribution to my country will be divided into 3 projects; To start a project to assist young men, in achieving their dreams, A project that will aim to learn young men, the moral values of life, and to show them, what is to be a man, this project will be launched at several schools, as a short production, and workshop classes; I then also want to start a campaign, that is against animal violence, and lastly but the most important, I want us all to stand together and stop Woman & Child abuse, because they are our future!

What qualities should a MR. South Africa title holder have:
A Mr. South Africa title holder, is someone who represents our country, a person who is proud to wear "Gold&Green", Mr. South Africa, is the person that other people will look up to, and he will make his country proud, because he will step up, and make a change, Age is only a number, the true man, is the one that life's to provide, and not for the show!
