Short Q&A with Amanda Du Pont

2015-07-04 21:30

I spent some time with the extremely talented and wonderful Amanda Du Pont, we were working on something for my show on Cliff Central called #BuildAnEMPIRE with Zareef Minty which airs every Wednesday between 15:00-15:30.  I managed to get some questions in for this interview. I have to admit that she has the worlds best double dimples that I have ever seen. She is definitely a potential Mrs Minty without a doubt. A woman with substance and faith. She is going places just wait and see. Hollywood next.

Below is the short Q&A with Amanda Du Pont:

  1. What advice do you have for the youth of South Africa?

Whatever opportunities that are given to you, grab them.They may not necessarily be the opportunities you are looking for but I have found in my journey that by doing something and doing it well lead me to where I want to be. Be passionate, whatever you doing be passionate about it. Also be honest with yourself, don’t try and be a model if you are an intellectual. Don’t try and be a businessman when numbers are not your thing. Have a general honesty but most importantly have faith of some sort. When things get tough and you want to give up, faith is that one thing that makes you keep on going because you believe in a better tomorrow. Never give up nothing is impossible.

  1. How important is commercialisng yourself as a brand being a young South African?

Extremely important but not as important as being great as your main focus. So whatever your craft is, for example mine is presenting, radio and acting but the better you are… people see you. Even if you sweeping a floor well people will notice. So I would say more than networking with various brands or corporates to build yourself, let your work speak for you.

  1. How important is it to have a significent other while you building up your empire?

There is nothing more beautiful when a Queen has a King, when you can hunt together. Its powerful but you want to make it work so bad that you will force an issue. I think if the time is right and you are meant to be together, then that’s great. Its really nice to have someone to lean on, to have someone to call, to have someone to help you. To have someone to share your success with, what is the point of working with everything we with work if you have no one to share it with.
