Who is the VOICE for our community and our YOUTH? I have your answer read along…..

Mr Tony Fernandez is the voice for the youths, OUR YOUTHS, speaking from my own personal experience, Mr Fernandez has taken me under his wings and been a true voice of guidance, step by step leading me in to the right directions, with the most essential resources such as books, networks, links, people, and the most priceless his great wisdom and advice. The best advice Mr Fernandez gave me was to “Enjoy the process” this was the best advice anybody could of ever given me, and as I started to apply that mentally and physically into my blog, poetry and writing, everything became a joy to do and my dreams, goals and my aspirations all begun to unfold, by listening and learning to his VOICE. 

Mr Tony Fernandez not only trains but allows you to be comfortable in your own voice, I became confident sharing my writing with Mr Fernandez, as I recognised that all that he wants is the BEST FOR HIS YOUTHS, OUR YOUTHS as he never faild to show great interest and enthusiasm each day by always taking time out to read my work and always giving back quality feedback, and him understanding your passion and dream. It’s as if he is re-living through you and wants to make a change for the better. 

Mr Tony Fernandez has a way to encourage and empower through his voice and the chosen words he uses with out even knowing, and one thing that we need to hear as youths is ” I am proud of you”, and I heard this alot from Mr Fernandez, this allows us and our community to want to keep on pursuing, pushing and achieving , as we are consciously aware that our leaders and our community are behind us and beside us and that they want to see us achieve and want to be proud of US. 

Mr Tony Fernandez is an example of what we need more in our community, his voice of leadership and guidance is what has pushed, motivated and encouraged me, many others and hopefully YOU.
