There was a great level of excitement in the air for the arrival of Boity at the Morris Isaacson High School in Soweto on Monday 16 September 2019 – one of the various stops as part of the Impulse Roadshow that kicked off in August.
Music was pumping in the school’s courtyard where learners started gathering to partake in the fun and activities that were about to ensue. The Impulse promoters and MC rallied the students and encouraged them to partake in a bit of fun and dancing and win spot prizes. And soon after a substantial crowd of about 150-200 learners had gathered, Boity arrived. The learners – especially the girls – got a single glimpse of her, and soon everyone was screaming and jumping out of sheer excitement.
“I want to encourage you to surround yourself with friends and peers that will have a positive impact on your life: not those who will tell you to bunk school or get involved in the wrong things,” she said. At the end of the day, a good education is going to be one of the things that drive you forward in life.” Lastly, she spoke about the importance of a support structure. The importance of sisterhood. That you should #OwnYourThrone and #TrustYourImpulse.
