"Shabba" to lead Walt Disney Aim High project!

A South African soccer legend will kick off the fourth phase of Disney XD’s Aim High campaign. The campaign offers fans the chance to win a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience with inspirational mentors.

Aim High is an initiative that gives kids across the country the chance to win a series of mentorships in a different field to learn how to realise their true potential. Seeking inspiration from world class sportsmen and musicians, Disney XD’s Aim High gives kids everywhere the chance to do what they love and love what they do. Whatever the route, the important thing is to Aim High.

Siphiwe Tshabalala achieved fame when he scored the opening goal for Bafana Bafana against Mexico in the FIFA 2010 World Cup. As Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, Tshabalala is at the height of his profession.

Regarding his involvement with Aim High, he said: “It is a great honour to be selected as Aim High mentor. As a child I had great mentors who gave me opportunities that changed my life. It is great to know that I now have the opportunity to return the favour.”

To enter, fans simply need to visit the Disney XD Aim High microsite or go to MXit >Tradepost > Entertainment > Disney > Disney XD before Thursday, 13 June and answer a multiple choice question and then say why they should be selected for this incredible opportunity to learn from an international soccer star. The winner will get to spend a day learning the tricks of the trade directly from their mentor.

Aim High’s previous mentors include singing sensation and winner of South Africa Idols 6, Elvis Blue; South African rugby star, Tendai ‘The Beast’ Mtawarira; and international South Afric cricket star, Dale Steyn.

12-year-old Khethelo Hlongwa from Durban was the lucky winner of the first phase mentorship with Elvis Blue. Hlongwa spent an inspiring day writing and playing music with his favourite singer.

The winner of the second phase mentorship with Mtawarira was 14-year-old rugby fanatic, Ruben van Heerden from Johannesburg. Van Heerden spent a day at the Sharks home stadium, playing rugby and training with his idol.

In 2012, 15-year-old Nishan Pillay from Pretoria spent a day with Dale Steyn at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London, as winner of the third phase of Aim High.
