I know for a fact that volunteer work does expose one to work experience in order to gain knowledge for a particular job. Also, volunteer work gives one an opportunity to explore how the work environment is structured and decipline is maintained in relation to productivity and the work ethic.
Youth in South Africa do not understand the significance of volunteering to gain some work experience, besides giving back to the community should be a moral obligation for all citizens to restore our humanity as a society. I learnt how to write by volunteering for a local community newspaper.
Later on in the process I was invited by "The Springs Reporter" in Kwa-Thema to write motivational articles for the same reason. This was the beginning of my love for writing as a hobbyist author.
It was a spiritually rewarding exercise and a huge learning curve to mould me as a budding lyricist and composer to winner of the best "Song Writer of The Year" in 2005 international competitions. (The Yoko Ono - Project)
I am currently encouraging one of my student who has the potential to pursue an interest in writing for pleasure. It is time African Women take a stand to tell their own story. Welcome Tshegofatso to Go Trending Events and News as a volunteer freelance author.
Count Yourself In!
