Trevor Noah – FULL TRANSCRIPT:

“Good morning/afternoon everybody. Good to have you. This is weird ’cause I’m just gonna talk to your phones and we’re right here. It’s a strange experience. Welcome to the millennial age. You’ll have the picture and you’ll show it to your friend and they’ll go what does he look like in person? You go, I don’t know, I was also looking at my phone when I should have been there with him.

First of all, thank you very much, Bill and Melinda for having me. When I was first asked to be here they said hey, we want you to come and speak at this event, Goalkeepers, and talk about what’s happening in the world and I looked through all of the people speaking and I said but I have nothing. I do not have a fridge that can change lives, I do not have a plan to eradicate HIV in South Africa and in southern Africa and the rest of the continent and I most definitely cannot ride a motorbike so I don’t know what I can do for you.

Bill just said come and share your thoughts, your stories, your ideas and I guess that’s how I process information. That’s how I process my world, so, I’ll tell you a little bit about myself and why Goalkeepers means so much to me. So, in case you don’t know me, my name is Trevor Noah, I grew up in South Africa during a time known as apartheid and for those who don’t know, apartheid was a system of laws which made it illegal for black people and white people to integrate with each other amongst other things. Black people lived in separate areas to white people, they had different rules, they were segregated and this was particularly tough for me because I grew up in a mixed family, well, with me being the mixed one in the family.
