#BeAKidAgain – Enter The Paper Jet Challenge And Win A Trip To Zanzibar

My favourite online travel agency, Travel Start is running an awesome competition and inviting the public to take part in their Paper Jet challenge, were you one of those creative kids at your school or you always had the best Paper Jet in your neighborhood? Well, here’s a chance to join in the fun and #BeAKidAgain – you and a friend can stand a chance to win to the beautiful ZANZIBAR. I’ve shared this competition with all my close friends and family members and our deal was, whoever wins gets to take me, I’ve always wanted to go on holiday and anyways even if I don’t win, I’ve set up a budget to go on a vacation towards the end of the year because Travel Start offers amazing return flights to Zanzibar.

Talking about this competition brings a lot of childhood memories so let me share some of the incredible stories with you. Growing up I have always been the child that wanted to be heard, I always wanted to be on the center stage and tell my story, I think this will give you guys an idea of how I started blogging.

During primary school I took part at almost every school play that we would have seasonally and would be grateful to be chosen as the main act or ‘star’of each drama production I would audition for at my school, I was popular and would appear at local magazines and on our newsletter, the teachers loved this about me and the fact that I was not only excelling in the arts but also academically as I was in the debating team for our school 3 years in a row. Now I wanted to be paid for it, I wanted to be on a larger audience and I wanted to meet like minded people, then that’s when I started searching for acting gigs for kids and saw auditions for Gcina Mhlophe’s African Christmas production which was going to be staged at the playhouse, I took the newspaper my mom had bought and called in to register for auditions and having the supportive mother I have, we went there together. To cut the long story short, I was through the first and second round and made is as one of the leading characters for African Mother Christmas.

Being part of this production taught me a lot of things about the entertainment industry and was lucky to work with multi-award winning actors, musicians and directors such as Madala Kunene, Faca Khulu and Slindile Nodangala. My love for the entertainment grew from then and this was of great influence in working in the fields I have worked within throughout – PR, entertainment commentating and writing.

Thanks so much for reading, hope to see you again :)
