I believe my passion brought me where I'm meant to be - Omuhle Gela

The actress posted a long message on her Instagram about the ups and downs of the industry and how she eventually made it on to Muvhango, 100 auditions later. "I was fresh out of acting and film school and had pretty much no plan after finishing university. I attended auditions [probably my 100th TV audition], when I got there it was so full, [thee were about] 60 girls there, if not more."

Here's a little Thursday inspiration. So this is the young me, it was my first day on the set of Muvhango as Busi, years ago (can't remember the exact year) i was fresh out of Acting /Film school and had pretty much no plan after finishing university ?I attended auditions (probably my 100th tv audition) , when I got there it was so full, plus minus 60 girls if not more , (some I've been seeing on tv so that's ALREADY intimidating) so I decided to not let any of that distract me, and reminded myself why I'm STILL auditioning after years of auditioning and NOT booking any gigs, I walked in and the was a panel of 6 people ?????? includ Bab' Duma Ndlovu, auditioned and they called me back the next day for a screen test, the rest is history. Years later and 7 roles later I BELIVE my passion and GOD brought me to where I'm meant to be. Moral of the story, Doors close in preparation for the main door to open for you, keep pushing and believing, we all have a purpose on this earth, living it just happens in Gods time not ours. TRUST ???? STAY POSITIVE #TBT
