SA YOUNG AMBASSADOR TO EXPERIENCE A TEST OF THE CULTURE AND EDUCATION PROGRAMME IN NANJING

 

South African Young Ambassador (YA) representative for the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games, Reabetswe Mpete, joins her international counterparts for a Young Ambassadors seminar that will be held from 25-28 March, 2014 in Nanjing, China.

The main aim of the seminar is to provide the YA’s with general information and help them acquire better knowledge of Nanjing and Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympics Games. It also serves as a test run of part of the Culture and Education Programme (CEP).

The YA’s will have a chance to experience some of the CEP activities as well as give their opinions about them. This seminar also avails the YA’s a platform to interact with each other through fun team-building activities, to meet their NOC Chefs de Mission (CdM) and get to know Nanjing, the host city for the 2nd Summer Youth Olympic Games.

Says South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) CEO, Tubby Reddy: We wish our Young Ambassador, Reabetswe an enjoyable experience in Nanjing. We hope the test run for the Culture & Education Programme will set the pace and create enthusiasm for the rest of the programme to be held during the Youth Olympic Games.

“We urge Reabetswe to share and pass on the Olympic values of excellence, friendship and respect to her fellow citizens when she returns to South Africa.

For her part, Mpete is excited to be part of this phenomenal experience. As a BA Sport Communication graduate and a current BA (Hons) Sport Management student, being selected to represent my country is both a blessing and a great opportunity for me as I get to travel to Nanjing, China and meet up with all the other Young Ambassadors from all the participating countries.

“The purpose of the seminar is to prepare us for the Youth Olympic Games and the Cultural and Educational Programes we will be running and this will enable us to bridge the knowledge gap on the Olympics.
