Rookie - 40 Points (Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA)

Ubuntu - Poem by Suzette Richards

success is within our grasp
the fear of failure should not be entertained
visualizing the outcome brings it to pass
sharing our successes empowers others
thus elevating us to new heights of achievement
collectively the engineers of a new nation
Ubuntu, the inherit spirit of Africa
I'm what I am because of who we all are
