An example of a change maker is Nelson Mandela.Nelson Mandela is the man who kept South Africa from ripping itself apart by advocating reconciliation instead of revenge. Contribution:Nelson Mandela was the first Black president of South Africa and the first president to be elected in a Democratic manner.He was inaugurated in Pretoria, the same town in which he had once stood to be sentenced to jail. Nelson Mandela made so many contributions to humanity and for his contribution he received the Nobel Peace Prize. He was able to teach the world what activism really means, he stood up to those who sought out to oppress others. He was willing to give up his own life for the principles of democracy. He showed everyone his incredible strength and the ability to never back down. He did this by coming out of 27 years of incarceration, stronger and more determined to save his country from a civil war and make the world a better place.He was able to end the racial segregation in South Africa, by working with other activiststo abolish apartheid. This paved the way for a truly equal society in South Africa. Although Nelson Mandela made such an impact on his country, his impact led to problemswith his family. He had 3 wives and married his last on his 80th birthday. Due to hisimprisonment he had many issues and missed out on most of his children's lives. The conditions that led to NelsonMandela being such a great leader was mainly his beliefs and his time spent inprison helped define the man that lead South Africa to greatness. His persistentvision of a better future, this was somethinghe continually thought about and wasprepared to die for. His concrete disciplineto tirelessly work for his country, this wassomething not many people got to see. Healso had an enormous capacity of forgiveness,he was wrongly imprisoned for 27 years of hislife, he treated everyone in the prison friendlyand polite, even the people who had given himso much pain. I believe these are just some ofthe many conditions that led to Nelson Mandelabecoming such a great leader.
