About the Winners
David was born in Botswana and moved to Durban, South Africa when he was nine years old. He currently attends Westville Boys' High School, and although he does not know the career path he wants to pursue, it is very important for him to work with people and make a difference in their lives. He believes in the Dale Carnegies theory, which is that you never leave people neutral, you leave them either better or worse, and he chose to always leave people better after meeting him. David is excited to be given the opportunity to speak at the WLSA & CAN Conference, where he will discuss the role WLSA played in his development as a leader.
Tom Earle is a Westville Boys' High School student who is currently in grade 11. Tom hopes to achieve academic honors and to be accepted to enroll into an American University of his choice. Tom is interested in performing community service and is looking into different programs to volunteer for during the summer time. Tom is very much looking forward to attending and speaking at the WLSA & CAN Conference as he is keen to see Shanghai again, which he calls " an amazing city" and divulge into the Chinese culture. He hopes to make the most of the opportunities that will present themselves to him at this year's conference.
