Hope Mampa, the Zuri Princess of the BaPedi tribe, is a young woman who firmly believes in the power of second chances and the potential of dreams. She is a strong advocate for every African who has been denied an opportunity to become what they aspire to be. Hope's journey, from growing up in Limpopo and Gauteng to becoming a diverse individual adapting to cultural change, is a testament to her resilience and determination.
A New Day, A Second Chance
Hope Mampa supports the notion that "A new day is a given second chance for you as a young human to try again and focus on your dreams". She emphasizes that delayed dreams are not denied dreams, and with the right mindset, effort, and determination, nothing is impossible to achieve. Her fight is for every African who is denied an opportunity to become what they aspire to be.
Culture is Identity
Having grown up in Limpopo and Gauteng, Hope has learned to adapt to cultural change and has come to understand that culture is identity. She believes that an individual's understanding of their own identity starts from within, but it is shaped by the values prevalent at home. If chosen as a Zuri princess representing the Bapedi culture, Hope aims to encourage youngsters to know their roots and teach them about culture. She believes that culture is what defines us, and if we don't understand our culture, it means we don't know our origin.
Empowering the Youth
Hope is not just about words; she takes action. She has a business, Hoppe Crafts, which she believes can inspire people and contribute to the economy of the designing industry. Through her business, she hopes to empower and motivate people to start their own businesses, fight poverty, and struggle. She believes that when knowledge is spread out, everyone feels included and empowered.
