Your Secret Passion: I don’t have, I’m doing 2 things that I love. However, I’d love to be a performer like Beyoncé. So that can be my secret passion.
Worst day of the week: Definitely Mondays!
If you could invite any three people, dead or alive, for dinner, who would they be and why? Definitely Lebo Mathosa! She was amazingly talented and famous but remained true to herself. I absolutely love people who remain true to themselves, I hate that she passed on before we could meet. I mean what kind of dinner would it be without Connie Ferguson? I am blessed to work with such greatness. I mean I know I see her every other day at work but I’d definitely love to have her over for dinner. She’s an actress and a business woman I’d love to pick her brain so she can tell me how she does it.
The thing you're most proud of: It would have to be achieving my dreams. I went to school for Radio Broadcasting and still had the passion of becoming an actress, and I’m currently doing both. That’s amazing!
Your likes: I actually don’t have a lot of likes. So it will have to be music and traveling.
Dislikes: I can’t stand rude people and pets.
Favourite musician or band: Wow this is difficult! I love a lot of musicians. Okay when it comes to house music I’ll go with Black Motion and Soul I’ll go with Aretha Franklin.
