Anti-Drug Campaign for Schools

The first time I did public speaking was in 2004 at Hoërskool Alberton, and my talk was on the dangers of drugs.

In order to keep the 30 plus youngsters focused on me, I included interesting stories about my life as a boxer, my travels around the world as an international model / actor, winning the SA Natural Heavyweight Body Championships 4 years in a row, including winning the Senior Sportsman of the year award in Alberton.

These youngsters were in awe when viewing the pictures of all my championship wins in my book Drug Free Muscle Training, which motivated them to work harder to become top sportsmen without the use of steroids. Needless to say, the talk was a resounding success, resulting in the school principals from Bracken High, Marais Viljoen, Alberton High and Hoërskool Dinamika inviting me to speak to their students.

I continued doing motivational talks in schools countrywide over the next few years, speaking to over 300 000 learners.

I look forward to launching the 2020 Anti-Drug Campaign, for high schools throughout South Africa. I will be kicking off this campaign in schools in JHB South and in the Alberton area during month January, and will include speaking to grade 7 pupils in primary schools for the first time. I hope to do these presentations for grade 7 pupils together with their parents.

This presentation is a must for all pupils and educators, covers the dangers of drugs in sport, bullying, Aids, substance abuse, the use of alcohol, cigarettes, cocaine, ecstacy and other drugs.

The 40 minutes slide show which features graphic pictures of children who have overdosed and illustrates the negative effects that substance abuse has on internal organs.
