Nelson Mandela was on of the worlds most loved human, he changed the lives of dark skinned people, from down hill to the very top, He went to jail for 27 years for what he believed in and came out to be the next president of South Africa. Mandela had nine siblings, three brothers and six sisters. Nelson Mandela said I quote "May your choices reflect your hopes not your fears" 

In 1918 Nelson Mandela was born his birth name was Rolihlahla it means trouble maker.
The English name Nelson was given to him by a missionary teacher from his middle school. In 1939 Nelson Mandela attended at the university college of fort hare, in Alice then got expelled.

51 years ago, Nelson Mandela was was Arrested and charged for standing up for what he believed in which was: white people and dark people live and do things together as one, in other words stop racism and all people live in harmony. He said in court "I will do whatever to achieve this, even if it means death" 

1948 - 1951 Mandela was released from prison and made his stand, he stood strong and achieved what he said he would achieve. After he achieved the stop of racism Nelson was elected President and National Secretary for ANCYL (African National Congress Youth League).

Even at the old age he always kept to what he did best 'Bringing Peace' In 2012 Nelson celebrated his 94th birthday with his family in Qunu in eastern cape. Mandela was admitted and charged into hospital two times until finally his suffering from being sick was over on december the 5th 2013.

I have learn't a lot about this wonderful man! He has done so much to help the world and with his passing he leaves a great legacy. Nelson wasn't respected because he gave revenge to the people who put him in jail for 27 years, he finished what he started.
