Don't wait for anyone to understand you - Unknown

Dear South African Geeks,

"It's time to bet on yourself - I would like to encourage young geeks to bet on themselves, to actually give themselves and their wildest dreams a chance.

This would be a message I would like to spread because just a few years ago, having that mentality helped me so much. I think everyone needs to give themselves space to try. Trying everything from gaming, developing or designing, but it really all just starts with giving those dreams a shot even though they seem wild and impossible."
