Mpho Manyisa has made her voice heard across the globe and brought about meaningful change through her own ambition and entrepreneurial spirit, particularly through One Young World.
This is an organisation that aims to convene the brightest young talent from every country and sector, and Manyisa is the coordinating ambassador for South Africa. One Young World works to accelerate social impact by identifying, promoting and connecting the world’s most impactful young leaders to create a better world, with more responsible and effective leadership.
Manyisa’s proudest moment was during her term leading and hosting the Future Economies Caucus in collaboration with EOH. The caucus brought people together to pack meals with Rise Against Hunger for 7 000 families across South Africa.
She plans to tackle the UN Sustainable Development Goals, particularly in delivering quality education and reducing inequality among and within countries.
“Believe in your dreams and your ability to reach them and drive change for the next generation of young leaders.”
