What social stigma does society need to get over?

That yellow bones are prettier than darker women.

I have never eaten oysters. I would love to try them out. I actually have no idea why I haven’t yet but I am really looking forward to exploring that.

What’s something you really resent paying for?

WiFi. We all need to be connected and in 2019, I feel like that connection and access to information should be free to I hate paying for that.

What would a world populated by clones of you be like?

The world would obviously be such a vibe. It would be crazy, fun and happy. That would be so cool.

Do you think that aliens exist?

No. I need to see a little more evidence to believe in something.

What are you currently worried about?

Winning the R1 million grand prize at the upcoming Tropika Island Of Treasure competition. I am working hard to get my brain and body in shape.

Where are some unusual places you’ve been?

My ex boyfriend’s house. That place has the weirdest, most unusual setup. So weird, strange and scary. I can’t even explain it further.

Where do you get your news?

On the internet and the television.

You are given the chance to star in any movie from the past or present, which movie do you choose?

Wakanda Forever!! I have a really big crush on Michael B. Jordan so it would be lovely to actually get a chance to spend some time with him on the set of a film that became so iconic in South Africa and the world. So, it would definitely be Black Panther.
