🌊Leader of the Week: Eli Zaelo
Multilingual local pop star Zaelo takes the stage
Hey High Tide!
My name is Eli Zaelo. I am multilingual singer from Pretoria, South Africa. I sing C-Pop, Western pop and Afropop music. I also enjoy dancing and I’ve been fortunate enough to be in a movie or 2 ...or 8! So basically I’ve been bitten hard by the entertainment bug and I’d consider myself to be a triple threat.
I also enjoy swimming. I live for a good beach day!
I’m passionate about various things but here are 3 that I can think of right now:
Multiculturalism and Cultural Exchange
I’m passionate about multiculturalism and the beautiful exchange of cultures in an authentic, respectful and informative way.
This article by Liz Jackson from University of Hong Kong is a good look into how Hong Kong’s education system could embrace more of Hong Kong’s many cultures.
I’m also a supporter of the Refugee program at The Vine church “Branches of hope” as it has done so many wonderful things for the community. Find out more here.
I’m inspired by go-getters who consistently work on their craft and attain great results. A great example if this would be Simone Biles who’s competing at the Olympics right now.
