Growing up in KZN we all knew back then that there were less opportunities for you to be on TV because we didn't have a TV station based in KZN, but that didn't stop me from believing that one day I will live my childhood dream and so I did all that I could to get where I am today. For me, I didn't want to do anything else, I only had plan A with no plan B. Deep down I knew I would somehow end up on TV. So, it was plan A or nothing.
