Johannesburg -Whenever actress Amanda du-Pont is at the gym, she notices a young boy boxing.

After seeing his spirit and continuous dedication, and no doubt with curiosity getting the best of her, Amanda decided to introduce herself to the young boxer.

What she learnt about his life was not only an important life lesson for her, but perhaps for us all.

Taking to Instagram recently, to talk about her experience, Amanda wrote: "This kid has lost his father and grandfather in the space of six months...Instead of giving up on life and feeling sorry for himself he is becoming a dedicated boxer and all round fitness this he has found healing," she wrote.

"This is a lesson to us as adults. Don't let your pain destroy you, let it give you power to become stronger. God will only give you a burden you can handle," she added, along with the caption "#Hero."
