A SUCCESS STORY: ASANTE MNENE
I had a great experience in the Academy and what I can say is; You truly get what you put in. I’m happy with my progress and still wish to do more projects and performances.
I’m looking forward to being in different productions, blossoming as an actor, blooming as a dancer, amazing as a singer. It’s all one step at a time. I would love to be part of the Academy even when my days as a student are over, to help the others who are having the same visions.
A SUCCESS STORY: MARITA MHLONGO
Being in the Foundation helped me realise my potential as an individual, it exposed me to things I never thought I could do more especially when comes to dance. It made me realise that I have the ability to be versatile.
What was good was being amongst other creative-minded people. Experiencing the level of performance as an individual artist, exploring what you can do, and mostly pushing yourself to your limits. What could be better is the way of strengthening the potential one has, by having more practical experiences like performing in different events.
