Nthabiseng Modjadji, 29, from Fourway in Johannesburg, is one of the country’s foremost youth activists and intersectional feminists, someone who believes in actively championing change. Modjadji is the founder of Breaking Down Borders Africa Youth Initiative, a Pan-African platform led by African youth for the benefit of African youth. The initiative is inspired by the vision of enabling African youth to connect and share skills towards the renewal of the continent. “The initiative is invested in bringing all Africans together, to write the future of Africa and share skills and experiences in an inclusive space. We seek to address gaps that hindered youth development work within the social and entrepreneurship landscape,” says Modjadji, who is currently in Egypt for the World Youth Forum to which she was invited by President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. Modjadji is also one of the contributing authors of Africa 80, an anthology co-authored by 80 young African leaders from 15 countries.
