The survey, conducted by leading international PR and ratings agency Avance Media, aims to recognise remarkable contributions made by individuals towards their respective fields that have impacted other young South Africans, and beyond.

"It’s moments like these that remind me that I am on the right path,” says Lindeque. "Good Things Guy feels like a gift that was given to me to help South Africans see our beautiful country with new eyes, and I am thankful for each and every one of our readers."

First launched in 2016 by Avance Media, the ‘100 Most Influential Young South Africans’ has previously been won by comedian and TV personality Trevor Noah (2016) and Ndlozi (2017). Caster Semenya was the first woman to be awarded the title as the ‘Most Influential Young South African’ for 2018.

Good Things Guy was created by Lindeque in 2015 to promote South Africa’s good news and to share inspirational stories. The site has evolved to become a global, multi-platform company that shares unique content to over a million readers each month.

"I believe that there is always a good news story to tell, and I’m honoured to be recognised as an inspirational South African among amazing individuals who have excelled in their fields of business, lifestyle, sport and entertainment. All this in the first quarter of the year. I’m looking forward to sharing many more good things throughout 2019," concludes Lindeque.
