Personal life history

Educational background

In 1995, she graduated from Wingen Heights Secondary School in Shallcross, Durban. While joining the police force was an option she pondered, the theatre’s charm and mystery drew her in closer and piqued her interest. She began a two-year training program at the Market Theatre Laboratory in 1997.

For a young woman from a poor community in KwaZulu-Natal, studying acting in Johannesburg was neither a guarantee nor an easy decision. She wasn’t, however, alone. Her family backed her up and provided the emotional and material support she required. She lived with her mother’s sister, Teresa Msimang, in Pimville, Soweto, during her studies. On so many aspects, it was a completely new world for her, and the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg was contagious.
