Zahra Dada.. Who am I?
‘’Empowerment comes when we stop being victims and become students of our lives. We must study every experience and how to use it to learn, grow. And then overcome.’’ – Yasmin Mogahed"
I am Zesty, hardworking, well-travelled, driven, motivated. I believe that if you put in the necessary effort to achieve your goals and reach for your dreams, that you will undoubtedly reap those rewards!
I discovered my talent for acting and entertainment during my Matric year in 2013 where I achieved a 92% in my final mark for drama. If there is one thing I have always been passionate and I believe have the talent and look for, it is TV presenting. My heart beats culture, music, entertainment and lifestyle (both Hollywood and Bollywood ;). I have just graduated from a three-year degree in Brand Building and Business Management at Vega School of Brand Leadership. I appeared in an online commercial for Vega as a student (2016) and now that I have graduated I have decided to pursue my dream of tackling the entertainment industry. I do understand that this is a tough industry but I HAVE to be even tougher! I have completed two Acting on Screen courses, a TV presenting course, a Dale Carnegie course in which I won one of the biggest presentation awards and an Introduction to Modelling course in which has inspired me even more towards my passion. Currently my aim is to continue tackling fantastic opportunities in this industry as a presenter, actress and model.
My Goal is to achieve my HIGHEST potential and to maximise on my God-given talents, gifts and insight.
