To Sasa Zibe's father, education and hard work were second to none. He continually instilled these ideals in the mind of his young son. "When I was little, our home was so small and we didn't have much, but my father still taught us that if we worked hard and got a good education, we could change things for ourselves."
Sasa (pictured at left) carefully observed his fathers every move. Over time, the family's circumstances did indeed begin to change.
"He set an example to me. I watched him work and I watched our surroundings change. Our family didn't live in that small house too much longer. I learned that what you work for, you receive."
