An international art exhibition in London this week is looking at the lottery of birth. This got us thinking about what it is that dictates our future?
Some believe that where you are born will decide your future, but can you not shape your own destiny? Is it not down to personal determination to overcome adversity, or do you feel the odds are too heavily stacked against you?
Is this attitude holding Africa back?
Do you feel your fate was decided by where you were born? Have you overcome adversity in your life and succeeded against all odds? How did that happen? What can you as an individual do to shape your own destiny? Send us your views.
