Sindisiwe Mhlanga, a young lady from Piet Retief – eMkhondo, in Mpumalanga, has had to face a number of challenges in her life. Having got involved with an older man, she fell pregnant and felt compelled to drop out of school. This led to depression and substance abuse. But Sindi was determined to turn her life around. She broke off the abusive relationship with her older boyfriend and enrolled at night school to complete her studies. She is now a coordinator for the ZAZI campaign in her area, and urging other young woman not to make the same mistakes as she did. One of her sources of inspiration is Beauty Grootboom, an HIV & AIDS ambassador in the district.
