12 August we are celebrating International Youth Day and my Birthday!!

What drives me?

From a young age I've always been fascinated by business, which led me to take the commercial route in High School. As I grew I developed quite a lot of interests, mostly being the Internet and E commerce.
Go to E-commerce

E-commerce

I have dedicated a lot of time and my life learning more about E-commerce. I even moved to China because of E-commerce. I Look up to Jack Ma who is the Founder and Executive Chairman of Alibaba Group. In 2015 I founded my own small online store called www.itemz.co,za which secured funding but eventually failed. I guess SA is not yet ready for Online Shopping. E-commerce In South Africa and the rest of Africa is still on its infancy stage, so I haven’t given up on Itemz.co.za, Infact we will be launching Itemz.co.za soon.

Go to Learning a new Language

Learning a new Language

Dealing with another culture enables people to gain a more profound understanding of their own culture. Creativity is increased with the study of foreign languages. Graduates often cite foreign language courses as some of the most valuable courses in college because of the communication skills developed in the process.

Go to Travel

Travel

Being culturally sensitive is key in our globalizing world. It is not enough to say “people from X country are like this.” It is important to look for underlying values that may explain a certain behavior in order to practice cultural sensitivity.Being aware of cultural values and norms is not only fascinating, but can help us understand international issues and conflicts, or even relate to the cultural norms of a foreign business partner.

Go to Personal Development

Personal Development

People know me as this ‘POSITIVE’ person you can come across, but why it that so? Because I have an interest in personal development. Personality is not inherited rather it is developed. The process starts right from the student’s childhood. This personality is shaped afterwards on the basis of impact of various positive and negative factors in life. The importance of this understanding is that, one should always keep on improving his/her personality. In other words, if it is felt that there are some features in our personality that need to be worked upon, then it can be done.

I am here to tell you that there is another way. It’s not for everyone. It’s not the only way. It’s not the easier way. Actually, it is more likely to be the harder way. But I guarantee you it is the best way. It is simply this – follow your dreams.

My Favorite quotes

These are few of my favorite quotes from people that I look up to, they really get me going. When we find someone to look up to and admire, we are challenged, encouraged, and enlightened. We find a defense against harmful or trivial distractions. We are emboldened in our worthy pursuits. And we are better equipped to accomplish them.

很多人常常问,“为什么我爱中国?”。我告诉他们,是因为我爱中国文化和中国菜。
