Enactus is a network which gives young leaders the opportunity to be innovative to help change or improve communities in a positive way through social action plans and environmentally responsible enterprises. Every plan that is created has to be linked to one of the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development that was announced by World Leaders. As an individual, I consider myself a keen advocate for projects that provide real life value to other members of our society. This has been and is still being demonstrated in the activities I involve myself in. For example, I am currently a project leader for the Enactus team and we are in the process of creating social action plans to create value for society. Some of the projects we are focused on revolves around ideas such as; decreasing food wastage, raising awareness of mental health and tackling the environmental crisis. The goal I envisage for this project would be to create an entrepreneurial project that can be implemented into society and will continue to grow. It will be a challenge since we will be starting from scratch, but it’s in these types of situations where I thrive and enjoy being part of a team and leading a project.
