Budding Bay actress to jet off to Florida
A FUTURE on stage is beckoning for Richards Bay High School Grade 9 learner Unothabo Mthethwa after she made the cut to fly to Florida, USA for this year’s Applause Rising Talent Showcase (ARTS) in July. Looking forward to the opportunity of meeting, and performing in front of key industry players, Unothabo can see her passion becoming a reality. ‘This is only the beginning for me and I know it will yield great rewards in my life, to help me realise my other passion of contributing to youth development through art,’ she said. After always playing different roles, mimicking her favourite actresses and just playing around with acting at home, Unothabo last year decided to get serious about trying her hand at it. It was then that she auditioned for the ARTS in Richards Bay.
‘That decision has enforced my love of acting and I plan to pursue it in full.
‘Not only do I love acting, but writing and dancing too.
‘I love how these elements help tell stories of people whose stories might otherwise not see the light of day.’
Just last week Unothabo took to her school stage in their rendition of Mamma Mia!
‘My dream is to fully contribute to the entertainment industry in ways that educate and empower.
‘Before last year I could only dream, but now I feel empowered enough to take the opportunity to showcase my passion and talent in Florida.’
To get to Florida, Unothabo needs sponsorship from anyone who is willing and able to help launch her acting career.
