Koketso Marishane is a social innovator currently serving as the Youth Ambassador (NDP 2030 Vision) in The Presidency of South Africa, DPME. His journey in life as is typical of a story of a Visionary African sojourner has been made possible by many a loving heart, and by a confluence of events and circumstances, that only God can fully comprehend. His soft-diplomatic contributions to the socio-economic development of South Africa and the world (UN) has gained him an arms-length of national and international accolades such as Top 100 Global Young Leaders by United Nations; Top 200 Young South Africans by Mail & Guardian; and Top Outstanding Young Person in South Africa by Junior Chambers International & Brand South Africa among others. With a background of Chapter 12 of the South African Constitution, Marishane was the Spokesperson for the first female Southern African Presidential Poet Laureate and the Global Communications Director for UMFPS serving 72+ countries globally. He sees his greatest challenge as accepting that the outcomes of his contributions to the world may only be felt in the long term. He deems his role as one that carries a responsibility to his peers and to the entire younger generation from the UN Member States to give impetus to the importance of a generational mix, and the importance of placing young people in positions of responsibility. Passionate about rural youth development and leadership, he is behind 'Marishane Youth Development Forum', a youth platform that curates development content in GaMarishane under Marishane Authority.
