South African Pyrographer-Painter artist Themba Shabalala

By Azad Karimi


The youth with a good adviser can make their life without fear. They need to encouragement and material and spiritual support. This support must be accompanied by an understanding of their interests.

The challenges of a teenager are very serious. They have to study and cope with school and its problems and stresses.

They also have emotional and love problems and do not know how to deal with it.

They find many interests that are very fleeting, and this confuses them. But this complex stage can also flourish in them, if accompanied by the right support and guidance.

Themba have passed that periods and now he is a young man. He is a good pattern for motivation in youth. When he was writing his answers automatically I was seeing in messenger. The words boiled in her mind and she wrote, without interruption. He is a capable man. Read the text of our interview, you will surely understand what I am saying.

I wish Themba Shabalala long life with success and lucky.


Thank you!
