From jet-setting across the globe, to going on shopping sprees in Dubai, South Africa's young influencers are working toward accomplishing their wildest dreams.

On the hunt for young individuals to represent the Gateway Theatre of Shopping brand, social media users, along with a panel of judges, had to choose five winners, from a mountain of entries, who exuded confidence and charisma.
