Pietermaritzburg Teen Aims for U.S. Tour with Support from Celebrated Academic Cousin, Nhlakanipho Mkhize
Nhlakanipho Mkhize, a distinguished 33-year-old academic originally from Imbali Township, Pietermaritzburg, and now residing in Springs, east of Johannesburg, embodies the belief that education is the key to unlocking boundless opportunities.
Now, he’s embarked on a mission close to his heart: to pay forward the transformative power of education to his cousin, Busiswa Kuzwayo, aged 14. His goal is to provide her with a chance to broaden her horizons through an educational tour of the United States in September 2024.
Jason Haas, a 15-year-old musical prodigy from Springs, Johannesburg, embodies the transformative power of music.
His story unfolds from the early age of four, when the melodies of his grandmother’s old piano captivated him, sparking a passion fueled by his mother’s love for music. This love nurtured his talent, leading him to master his first piece, Canon in D major, by ear—an early indication of his extraordinary musical intuition.
