She gained employment with Isibani productions as a stage manager and Personal assistant and had the opportunity to travel to Newcastle, Durban and Mpumalanga, where they were on a quest to look for young, new and fresh talent to device work, then perform it in their respectable communities, and further it if they wish to.
