DON’T you just love ac­tress Jes­sica Nkosi?

Ac­tress, Clin­ique so­cial am­bas­sador and Tropika Is­land of Trea­sure con­tes­tant.

Glamour (South Africa) - - Glamourama -

This year is look­ing great for Richards Bay-born Jes­sica Nkosi. The strik­ing ac­tress and pre­sen­ter will be kick­ing it all off this month as a con­tes­tant on the star-stud­ded Tropika Is­land of Trea­sure: Sey­chelles. “I feel like I’m part of Sur­vivor! I’m not sure what to ex­pect, but I know it won’t be easy,” she says with a smile.

The host of lo­cal favourite Our Per­fect Wed­ding is also a so­cial am­bas­sador for Clin­ique, a role that she de­scribes as “humbling, ab­so­lutely amaz­ing and an hon­our”.

Then again, Jes­sica has al­ways set the bar high. Af­ter com­plet­ing a BA in Drama and Per­form­ing Arts at the Univer­sity of Kwazulu-natal in 2013, she landed her first big act­ing gig on the hugely pop­u­lar soapie Isi­baya and then Ay­eye.

“The thing I love about act­ing is the sto­ry­telling as­pect and the way that it al­lows me to step out of my­self and to be some­one else,” she says. “Act­ing has the abil­ity to change per­cep­tions and lives.”

And when she’s not in front of the cam­era, you can find her curled up in a corner with a book or eat­ing out. “I love find­ing new and in­ter­est­ing restau­rants to try,” she says.
