Wednesday Morning Musing: New faces, New inspiration
This week we’ve been introducing a number of new faces to the office. The latest “enklings” as Lebo Mahasa used to call those indoctrinated with the sense self-belief, enthusiasm, and passion to create opportunities for South African youth (aka. working for enke) will gradually be introducing themselves over the next few weeks.
First up is Portia Mlangeni.
Hope you are having a lekker wacky Wednesday because I know I am.
My name is Portia Mlangeni and I am one of the projects interns for enke: Make Your Mark 2012. I know that there were a lot of excellent applications for the position; and I am very much grateful and humbled by the opportunity given to me to work with such a dedicated youth orientated organization like enke. I know that my time at enke will be a fruitful one with long-term relationships established along the way.
I will be having the privilege of working with and learning from the most dedicated, hard working and focused team one can ask for. I am also keen to start preparations for the Johannesburg Forum and begin keeping track of our 2011 delegates and their projects. You guys will be hearing from me very soon…
I can safely say that for the short time that I have been part of the enke movement, it has really broadened up my thinking and what role can I play in making my community fit into a better society. One needs to take initiative to make things happen instead of waiting possibly forever to have them come to life. I know that there are quite a lot of you that can relate to what I am saying.
As the delegate liaison person, I am here to lend an ear, a hand or any other form of assistance and/or support you may require from enke regarding CAP reports or any other relevant issues you come across, or even just to say hi and chat..
You can just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org , call the enke office on 011 027 0678, send an sms on the sms line (43366, using the keyword “enke” as the first word) or on the enke facebook page. Come on guys…Lets interact!
