The Centurion winner of the youngest distinguished toastmaster award wants the youth to develop their skills.

Andrew Tsuro recently received the highest accolade awarded by Toastmasters International for excellence in communication and leadership.

Tsuro told Rekord that he believed that the youth had so much to offer.

“I am one stone in the process of becoming a marble having been elected unanimously as the division director of the largest divisions of Toastmasters in Southern Africa (9 countries) to represent Toastmasters Pretoria, Centurion and Midrand.”

He said if today’s youth were guided properly, the country wouldn’t have a problem of crime and other related issued.

“I have heard so many cries about the youth losing their direction but what are you and I doing to correct that?

It is no secret that we [youth] are full of energy and experimentation, eager to try new things and make a name out there.

Unfortunately, we have no guidance hence crime.

Platforms such as Toastmasters have afforded me the opportunity to develop my speaking and leadership skills, networking and getting mentorship ultimately driving me away from a life of crime and immorality,” he said.

Tsuro urged the older generations to inspire the youth and mentor them.\

“Fellow guardian, you can give us your vote of confidence.

You can give us your open minded guidance and mentorship.

Together, you and I can transform our world, one youth; one Millennial and one leader at a time,” he said.

Toastmasters is a world leading non-profit educational organization that helps members face and overcome their fear of public speaking and leadership.
