Actor and Former Child Soldier, Emmanuel Jal, Visits Bassett House School

Bassett House were treated to a visit and presentation from South Sudanese-Canadian Actor and former child soldier, Emmanuel Jal.

Forms 3 to 6 sat and listened in awe as Emmanuel spoke about his life journey; from his start as a child soldier in Sudan to becoming an acclaimed recording artist and peace ambassador.

He encouraged the children to think about what they want to be and achieve in the future, to follow their dreams, to maintain a positive attitude, to dust themselves down from failure and not to worry about what other people think and say.  Emmanuel is truly inspirational and we felt incredibly honoured to meet with him and hear his incredible story.
