"I also came to SEE how undeniably human they (learners) are. I came to increase my exposure and raise my expectations for the dent that I could make on my chosen problem areas. With this newfound exposure and network, back to South Africa I go."
"So many opportunities to seize, so many problems to solve! Now I know for sure that making a dent is possible - I've made great friends with other humans who have, so why can't I?" he added.
