A LIFE-CHANGING decision made in his Carter biology class has lead S’thabiso Ngoza on a journey to America after being scouted by international scout Kim Myers to perform in the entertainment industry.

It was just one lesson that made Ngoza realise that he wanted to pursue acting, stating that in Grade 10 when he chose subjects he disregarded drama but soon realised his mistake after sitting in on a lesson.

“In Grade 10 I had to choose subjects and unluckily I didn’t choose drama until I sat in one of my biology classes and I instantly dreaded the three years I would have to spend in that class. My best friend, Lunga Rubuluza, recommended I take drama instead of biology and the first day in that class [drama] felt like I belonged there, like it was made for me,” said Ngoza.

He heads to America this July courtesy of Just You Model & Artist Management. He will perform in front of top industry professionals such as Sony Entertainment, Tyler Perry Studios, Nickelodeon etc.

Being scouted to pursue his passion, Ngoza said that he feels amazing and that he hopes his time in America will benefit him in the utmost. “I am very excited, more especially because I am the first person in my family to go to the States. I hope that my trip there is fruitful ...” said Ngoza.

Ngoza said that he one day hopes to inspire those around him, and in particular the youth, through his art.

“I want to change the world, I know it is a cliché but that is my wish and art is one of the things I hope to use to make a change. I am also driven by how art makes people feel, giving people an escape from their realities,” said Ngoza.

Having pursued acting since the age of 16, Ngoza said he hopes to gain entry into the prestigious New York Film Academy thus allowing him to stay longer and gain more knowledge in the process.

“American culture is one of the best I have seen and though I cannot wait, I am also scared and terrified to be honest. Though I am scared I know a huge part of me will be up for the task and overcome any obstacle put in my way,” said Ngoza.

“I have a purpose to fulfil, I have lives to change and people to make proud. I will make everyone proud. From my supportive loving mother to Elsubie Verlinden, the remarkable woman that opened this door for me,” said Ngoza.
