Being a mere 150cm tall, I was very nervous meeting Tendai ‘the Beast’ Mtwawarira. Just to make sure, I wore my highest (most painful!) heels. I needn’t have been so worried – Tendai is actually a friendly giant!
I was privileged enough to spend some time with Tendai the day before he, and the rest of the Springboks, jetted off to New Zealand for the IRB Rugby World Cup. He was brimming with pride and passion. Tendai loves being able to inspire kids, and has signed up with Disney XD in a campaign to mentor young boys.
Tendai “The Beast” Mtawarira will front the second phase of Disney XD’s Aim High, the exciting new initiative designed to inspire the youth to get the most out of life, try new things and be the best they can be. Disney XD’s Aim High will offer fans the chance to win a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience with inspirational mentors. The second phase of the campaign kicks off with South African international and Natal Sharks star, Tendai Mtawarira.
To enter, fans simply need to visit the Disney XD Aim High microsite* www.disneyxd.disney.co.za/stunt/aim-high or go to MXit >Tradepost > Entertainment > Disney > Disney XD before 01 November.
Tendai will be a great role model! He is humble and open. Here is what he has to say…
