As a youth and adult development facilitator for Columba Leadership Trust, Kamohelo Ramaipato’s biggest learning curve was spending time on himself. “I realised that I should put more focus and time into pushing for my own goals as much as I’ve been doing and continue to do for other people,” he says. Despite this learning curve, Ramapaito feels proudest when the young people he works with discover their true potential, evolve and succeed. Ramaipato works to transform school cultures through a values-based leadership model. “Knowing that my job allows me to directly speak into and impact the lives of young people across the country further emphasises the fact that I have a responsibility to play a role in moulding future leaders,” he says. Through his work and as a youth leader, Ramaipato wants to mentor young leaders who work towards self-reliant and self-sustainable communities in South Africa.
