Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela changed the world by chasing his dreams. He became the first coloured president of the world after being in jail for 27 years for standing for apartheid. And on friday the sixth of December died due to old age, he was 95 years old.

In Nelson’s early childhood when he was about 9 years old his name was Rolihlahla. His teacher asked him “ do you have a Christian name “ and Rolihlahla replied “No “ so his teacher your name will be Nelson. So from that point on he was called by that name.

Nelson stood against apartheid, doing everything in his strive to achieve his goals. He made a stand for the coloured people and they supported him. He was arrested.      

He went to jail for 27 years for it , but it was worth it. After he had finished 27 years in prison he had become president of Africa and the first coloured president of the world.

His journey had finished as president of RSA, so he retired. He got sick , and just faintly alive. And just on friday the 6th of december 2013 at the age of 95 he passed away.

I think the world could learn from this man is to follow your dreams if you know its right and keep striving to succeed.
