How CITW has changed my life – Tsakiso Tracey Mabasa, South Africa

Tracey Mabasa is 19 years old, and is from Mabiligwe Village in Makuleke, in Limpopo South Africa. Tracey joined Children in the Wilderness Eco-Clubs at Primary School, was involved in her YES Club.

She is currently completing her first year B.Pharmacy at the University of Limpopo.

Here’s what Tracey had to say about how CITW has impacted her life. 

“While CITW’s aim was to teach us about the environment and leadership I believe I benefited more than that.  From being a child that settled for just the ordinary, I am now a big dreamer and achiever. It was CITW coordinators like Janet Wilkinson (Mama J) who helped me to realize my potential. It was also with the help of the CITW’s Youth Environmental Stewardship camp in 2014 that I was able to get one of my poems published with SANPARKS times, Eco-Stars and The Ducere’s Collection of African Stories.

With the leadership skills that I acquired from CITW I am now able to strive in varsity. I was able to choose a field of study that I feel is the best, using the skills that we were taught at the CITW trails camp in 2016. The life skills that they taught us come in handy when it comes to dealing with the pressure of this new environment. I am Tsakiso Tracey Mabasa, and I am a very proud product of CITW.”
