Young Magician Juggles Family and Work

Magicians.co.uk | Magic News, Other News | Monday, December 3, 2012  |  14 Comments »

This week weve been inspired by a news story from BBC News Africa about Olawetu Dyantyi, a 19 year old boy from one of Cape Town’s townships in South Africa. At the age of 10 Olawetu saw a magic show put on by the College of Magic an outreach project in Cape Town. He was so spell-bound that he taught himself to juggle and finally secured a place for himself at the College. Since then he has gone from strength to strength, winning several competitions and travelling the world.

One of our biggest heroes, David Berglas, has benefited educational establishments like the College of Magic with his non-profit organisation called the Foundation for Promoting the Art of Magic (FP-AM). To find out more and make a difference click here.

Olawetu had to overcome superstition from his local community around witchcraft and he still remains the only breadwinner from a family of eight. However magic has given him a route out of poverty and a bright future ahead.

Take a bow Olawetu, your strength and motivation has touched all of us here at Magicians.co.uk
