The girl is symbolic of every girl and every boy in South Africa and represents the power of children to shape the future. Emulating Madiba’s dance, she is a symbol of hope, of infectious joy and innocence. She looks back at her hero, whose legacy and achievements will inspire and guide her into the future, and her own accomplishments.
