Eduzine Global Welcomes Young Ambassador
Eduzine Global is delighted to welcome Dean Bhebhe to our team of Global Young Ambassadors. Dean introduces himself to Eduzine Global readers, followers and fellow Global Young Ambassadors.
I am Dean Bhebhe, a 22 year old male student studying International Relations at the Eastern Mediterranean University, Famagusta, Cyprus. I take pride in being a young adult. I was asked by a certain young lady a question; "What does it mean being a young adult?" To be honest, lucky for her it was through a Facebook Inbox and I was half asleep when I saw the message and I had no idea how I would reply to her. I believe that was the problem. I did not know the answer at that time. I have a lot of views and answers to many questions, but I was moved by the fact that I could not answer that one question anyone would have deemed as easy. The truth at that time was that it was a hard question. I could have looked up the answer up on the internet, but I had a responsibility not only to myself but to the young lady. After much deliberation my answer was “it means having the power to choose right from wrong. It means you are important because the steps you take from now on will either change you or change the world”.
I am from the southern part of Africa and I speak English, Ndebele, Shona, Zulu and Tswana. The three years in Cyprus has also given me a handful of knowledge for Turkish. I am a great events coordinator and well versed with diversity, largely because of my background as a Junior Town Clerk for the city of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, so its very easy for me to align myself with change and be actively involved in any culture. I am a writer, a poet, blogger and a Dr Sheldon Cooper fan - ‘big bang theory’. The thing I love most about being a young adult and something that rarely gets recognized is that we’re motivated. We have the courage to think differently and explore beyond our deepest imagination. We’re innovative and resourceful. The odds may be stacked against us and yet we still find a way to triumph. That is what I offer the most; innovativeness, resourcefulness, efficiency, productivity and I do get the job done, so yes I do see myself as a hard worker. I believe when life gives you lemons you make orange juice and leave it wondering what happened. Yes, be different and choose to stand up and stand out! That’s all it takes to be young. Why fit into a world that tries so hard to change who you are, when you were actually born to stand out. If ever given the chance to give young adults advice, I would best say that, If there is a recipe for success then I wish I also knew it! I know of no other advice than the one I live by; to always give yourself a hundred percent in whatever you do and do your very best. Also, look beyond your personal circumstances and dream as if there was no limit to your dreams.
I have had dark times in my life but my brother's largely frightfully fascinating character and his poster up in his room have seen me through. The words on that poster were………..
Dreams speak to the man,
The man whispers his dreams to the stars,
The stars wink back and say,
“Come up anytime you are ready”
My achievements are part of my testimony to young people who have a heart for the world:
- Selected Bulawayo Junior city council Junior Town Clerk for the year 2010-2011
- African Leadership Academy Finalist - selected out of 3000 applications
- Published in Morocco under the Independent skies Magazine
- Published in Zimbabwe under Deck Magazine
- Accepted for International Students Festival in Trondheim 2013 out of 65 000 applications
- Accepted for International Development Youth Forum In Japan 2013
- High Honors student for the year 2012, 2013 and currently 2014.
I hope my taking a step to reach out to Eduzine Global, an amazing organization, is to a larger extent a sign of my drive and passion to be a writer. I am not looking for fame or money, but to be an example for young people out there, in the hopes of making the world a better place. I wish to use my motivation to be part of an elite team like Eduzine Global.
Once again, a BIG welcome to Dean, from all the team at Eduzine Global.com and thanks for sharing your motivational story.
