Ahead of Youth Day 2017, 10 young South Africans spoke to The Way of Us.
Afrika Lethabo Bogatsu, Gregory Furman, Maddie Magner, Mziyanda, Terence David Masamana, James Nash, Mini Radebe, Shai Rama, Dumi Scott and Sarah Sin told us their thoughts on media, representation and misconceptions. To get the conversation started, we asked,
What do older people get wrong about your generation?
Do you feel represented in media and advertising?
What makes you proud of your generation?
What do you hope your generation will achieve?
They're not afraid to speak up, and you shouldn't be, either. Let's keep talking – we're close to finding some answers.
So, what's on your mind this Youth Day?
