This February, IOL is spreading the love with our #MyHeart competition where we are asking readers to send a shout out to their loved ones to stand a chance of winning some amazing prizes.

Whether it's the love of your life, your BFF, your dog, your cat, your mom, your boss or your second-removed cousin on your grandmother's side, we want to know why you appreciate them so much.

Here's one of our winning entries from Triayana Naicker, who has won an iconic 10272 LEGO® Creator Expert Old Trafford - Manchester United set.

I have been a Manchester United supporter for 26 years but Ezra, my 9-year-old nephew, is the biggest Manchester fan I know!

He has been a supporter since the age of 3 (when he first began to watch & understand football). He is an avid football supporter (English Premier League & Champions league) & he represents his school in football and has played for Eskom United. layer

He relishes team stats, fixtures & results and loves to share these with anyone who will listen! His favorite Manchester United player of all time, is Christiano Ronaldo. For a 9 year old, it has been very disheartening to watch the team’s current 2019/2020 performance but he continues to persevere in his enthusiasm.

Ezra is an exceptional young man who is an all-round achiever that excels at academics & various extra-curricular activities. This competition is perfect for Ezra as one of his many passions includes Lego, where he sits for hours on end, building each new collection.

Kind regards,

Triayana Naicker
