NUMBER 1 ADVICE TO THE 10 FINALISTS BY MADONSELA
“Accept yourself as you are while working to do better on things that matter and if you fall treat that as school fees for lessons learned and bounce forward as quickly as you can be wisened by the fall.
Different seasons of life bring mixed emotions. You might find yourself feeling anxious, nervous, excited, content frazzled or even burdened but remember the challenges you are facing today don’t define you. God clearly chose you to experience this journey for a reason. Girdle yourselves with strength (spiritually, mentally, physically); there is a sacred light that serves as a lamp unto your feet. You were called for a time such as this so be strong and courageous, be loving and generous, stay confident and full of wisdom.”
