Short description about yourself:
I was born in a rural area of Lusikisiki in the EC, 1st born of 7 kids, that’s where I spent most of my life dreaming of what I wanted to become in life. And it was after discovering my passion for Performance arts that I went to study drama and film at DUT. I’m a very passionate, discipline individual and I strongly believe that strength of character and search for opportunities are a product of initiative, innovation, creativity and responsibility. I therefore always take responsibility for my own growth, striving to be outstanding rather than mediocre and I do that with dedication, enthusiasm and commitment, grasping all opportunities available to me.

What will your contribution be if you should become MR. South Africa:
Firstly, My wish in life is to be remembered as the one ‘who made it, and made difference in other peoples lives’ and the MR SA title will help me in getting started, It would help me get started with encouraging and inspiring other young South Africans, and showing them that where you come from and how underprivileged you are doesn’t determine your tomorrow and destiny but In the end, success is a mind-set, it’s in living a life of meaning, of being in a mission to share your success with others.

What qualities should a MR. South Africa title holder have:
As MR SA, You must possess that inner-power; Confidence, Passion, integrity, Compassion, Drive, and Personality.
