Who or what inspires you?
Steve Bantu Biko inspires me because of his principles and intriguing perspectives, particularly in regards to a human’s mind-set and how that meets a person’s outlook, not only about oneself but about those around the person as well. I live every day to be part of those who create a world he wanted to see. An egalitarian society in which colour, creed and race form no point of reference. He was passionate about community development and mutually valuable solutions.
