Lerato Tala (21) grew up in Daveyton but currently lives in Maboneng, Johannesburg. She has always looked up to her mother as she was her pillar of strength and her mother made her interested in Forensic pathology.

She has always dreamt of becoming a Forensic Pathologist but due to the lack of funding, she didn’t reach that goal. She also loves coding, programming and games. She wishes to become a game developer and create games. What is more, she thinks that playing best real money online slots is a perfect way to socialize and meet new friends.

She became an activist because of seeing the need to help the youth to make their dreams come true. In her community, there are recreational areas but they are not open to the youth to use and to get the youth out of the streets and stop them from substance abuse. Tala currently works at Khanya College in the ICT department.
