PiliPili Beach Bar in Sedgefield will host the launch of Mr South Africa's first book, Heart, on 23 April.
Known for his pioneering work as a sports science researcher, Dr Habib Noorbhai, 29, won the Mr South Africa title in 2016. Born in Johannesburg, he is now based in Cape Town.
The book looks at the roots of Noorbhai's life and how we all are provided with the same platform to evoke a sustainable and innovative difference in the lives of others but each one of us has a different path/journey.
Structured in three parts, Heart tackles the inferior vena cava (the root to his life) before delving into what he calls the superior vena cava (the meat of his career). The final instalment (the aorta) looks at the way forward for the current Mr South Africa and how one will find fulfilment from leading from the heart.
Noorbhai says that through his book he hopes to share his life journey prior to, and after Mr South Africa and hopefully inspire others to dream big.
“It showcases the important lessons that I have learnt, together with the fundamental experiences gained as well as the challenges and hardships that I have faced,” he explains.
Tickets prices for the launch event are R250 and includes a copy of the book (which normally retails at R280), the talk, snacks, finger food and a beverage. For more information contact Esther on 062 166 1831.
