Short description about yourself: I am a self-driven, proactive, enthusiastic, intrinsically motivated and passionate individual who lives to make a difference in various spheres of life and to the lives of others
What will your contribution be if you should become MR. South Africa: I feel that Mr South Africa is more than just a title or a competition. I think that it is a perfect platform to inspire, teach and motivate the millions of South African citizens to evoke a positive change in their lives and in society. I am the current Director of a non-profit organisation and if granted, I would therefore use the Mr South Africa title to leverage the differences we do even more which is much needed. These will be conducted in the various sectors of the country; namely: Health, Education, Innovative Living and Research. Nothing is impossible, the word itself says "I'm possible". www.habibnoorbhai.com
What qualities should a Mr SA title holder have: Mr. South Africa should be an ambassador of his country and resemble with pride, the patriotic qualities and virtues of a South African man. A good listener, a sense of humour, a proactive and thought-leader, humility and a passion for people - these are the key qualities that makes a man separable from the average man. A role model, ambition and a well-articulated, spoken man are the driving vehicles for shaping this beautiful country.
