Beauts share what Youth Day means to them

According to Jozi News, in honour of Youth Day, the ladies also briefly described what June 16th means to them with some insightful words.

Pearl Ntshehi from Gauteng

Pearl, who is a 25-year-old candidate attorney, said that the youth of 1976’s sacrifice was significant because it led to her and many others having academic opportunities that were previously not afforded to them.

“The Soweto Uprising for me, as part of the youth in 2022, marks the day in which education was afforded to me and afforded to me in my preferred language,” she said.
