Cape Town - Actress Thuso Mbedu is giving three girls the opportunity to own dresses that have marked the most important moments in her career.

The SAFTA award-winning actress took to her Instagram page on Thursday to announce that this year she would like to do something for three girls who have excelled in academics or in sports.

The 28-year-old encouraged her fans to either submit themselves or nominate someone else if they know that person does not have access to social media. 

"Those who know me know that I hold applying oneself academically and sports-all very close to my heart. So, this year I would like to do something for three girls who have excelled in these spaces. I have three dresses that have marked important moments in my career, and I would like to gift them to these girls. You can either submit yourself or nominate someone else if you know that they do not have access to social media," She wrote.

"When I wore this dress, it was my first time in Kenya for MTV Shuga DS Premiere. What a beautiful and magical night! The work that MTV Shuga does globally to educate and bring change is inspiring and one day I only hope to make an impact in the world. In the spirit of giving I will be giving away this dress to a lucky matriculant for their matric dance." She added.
