It has long been a dream of mine to go and audition in Germany. Having toured in Germany as an actress and avidly attended every opera performance I could on my days off, I have a strong feeling that this is the next step I have to take, and I intend to do this in October 2017. To get me there, I am seeking sponsorship.

I came across a diary entry of a talk I attended given by Steve Backley and Roger Black, the former Olympians. I remember them saying that there was an African saying: 'If you travel alone, you can travel faster. If you travel together, you can go further'. So I'm welcoming you to be part of my team - to find out more, use the contact form or email me at
