The MYD Show – We Are Because of One Another with Ashwyn Mberi
Ashwyn Mberi is a performing artist, poet and television presenter, actor, director and MC. Born in Harare, Ashwyn moved to Windhoek in 2013 pursue studies here. He says when he arrived in Namibia he fell in love with the country.
“Unity. Love for one another. Lack of prejudice. Understanding that I am you, and you are me and that I can’t be me, without you. Knowing that the best way to help myself, is helping you. Thats what I think Ubuntu is. Over-arching unity.”
Joining us for this episode of the MYD Show, Ashwyn shares with us on the power of Ubuntu, why collaboration has made the difference in his career and how fear is what he feels keeps us divided.
“People need people. You have your dreams, you have your goals, you have your values. But people need people. And if you remember that people need people then you will start to value the people around you. When you value the people around you, the more they grow and the more you grow.”
