Yashivan Govender

Where

Who

Born on the east coast of South Africa, Yashivan moved up to Johannesburg in early 2005 to kick start a company called FirstStep.me (www.firststep.me) which he developed in his final year of university in 2004. From South Africa, Dubai, Singapore, Europe and Australasia, the FirstStep.me brand has become more than just a business but an adventure.

Govender was named by Mail & Guardian as one the 100 young South Africans you must take to lunch in 2007, his second book launched in January 2012 which is part of The Fun Side of Being Serious book series and he is also the main character of the online documentary called Breaking Stereotypes (www.breakingstereotypes.org which was released in 2011). At 30, he believes that being a South African rocks, that youth business is the answer to the financial recession and that young people of the world today are the future heroes of the universe!
