1. What’s your biggest achievement / Something you’re proud of yourself for?
“As a woman of colour from the Cape Flats, I’m extremely proud of my career in its’ entirety. The fact that I have sustained a career in music for almost 20 years now, despite the many set-backs and challenges, is something I pride myself on. Sharing stages with artists like Josh Groban, George Benson, Karen Zoid and many others has made me realise that with hard work, tenacity, resilience and determination anything is possible. I try to remind myself that every set-back is a set-up for a greater comeback.”
2. What’s your biggest fear / something that holds you back?
“Fear of failure which is rooted in generational trauma. The level of self-awareness needed to conquer feelings of inadequacy and fear is a daily practice & motivator, despite the challenges.“
3. What’s your biggest contribution / Something you like to share?
“I am an advocate for the importance of music education, women in music and entrepreneurial training for artists. As the founder of The Lady Day Big Band – South Africa’s first all women big band – I intend to contribute to these sectors by ensuring this project remains a legacy project through outreach projects, community based workshops and performances. The goal is to inspire girls and young woman to pursue their passions, regardless of any challenges they may face.“
“Obsessed with fashion design & creation. So much so that I have my own label called Since 87 – and yes, I do make all my own stage wear. DIY projects, painting and up-cycling (I am a wiz with a glue gun, cardboard and contact paper!). Any form of creativity is a source of immeasurable joy for me.”
