A 26-year-old Silverglen man was delighted to visit India for the first time after he was selected to represent South Africa at the Global Education and Leadership Foundation’s annual conference, recently.
Together with 150 youth from around the world, Vedhan Singh, enjoyed a three-day retreat where they were able to engage the core values of leadership, ethics, altruism and decisive action (LEAD).
Speaking to journalists, Singh, who is the chairman of the South African Hindu Youth Movement, said, “I feel great and honoured that our grass-root community work is recognised in a greater level. At the summit, I learnt that ethical leadership is non-negotiable and that being, selfless and culture.”
He added, “As South Africans, we are very fortunate to live the way we do. My advice to the youth is to live a spiritual life rather than a religious life as a way to build peace among residents and strengthen the bonds that we have.”
In the spiritual atmosphere of Rishikesh, attendees were able to enjoy insightful and meaningful interactions between the young leaders, partners and friends, deepening and strengthening this transformational journey towards improving the state of their inner and outer worlds.
His message to youngsters is to always believe in themselves first.
