UZILE Mbambo (14) of Creston College seeks sponsorships for an acting audition in Orlando and New York.

Uzile was selected through auditions at The Playhouse Company in Durban for the International Talent Showcase and made it through to the second round in Johannesburg. After making it through there, she was told she would then have to audition in America in July.

With this in mind, Uzile is seeking sponsors to assist her in covering the cost of her auditions, workshops, accommodation, boot camp and transport.

“I am really passionate about acting, be it drama or theatre, and being given this opportunity is very big for me.”

Uzile started acting at a young age.

“As a child I enjoyed making people laugh and liked attention - from singing to dancing and acting, as long as people were laughing and looking at me,” she said.

Uzile said growing up and watching the Disney channel made her realise that what she loved the most could be a career for her.

She said being asked to audition in the U.S. not only makes her and her family, it also means she will be representing South Africa.

Uzile said her parents have been very supportive, but the cost of the trip is beyond their means.

“My parents have been very supportive towards my career and for that I am grateful. My intention is to pursue a career in acting and I would thankful if anyone would consider sponsoring me in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

Uzile will go to the U.S. with young actors and actresses from her agency, Just You Acting Agency, and her mother. For more information on Uzile’s audition and trip, contact her parents Nandipha Siyongwana on 082 820 4158 or email Elsubie at Just You Acting Agency on www.artstalent.com
