Television presenter Hlengiwe Nkosi is still trying to come to grips with the fame that goes with her job.
Nkosi, 20, of Barberton, Mpumalanga, was overjoyed when she was engaged by SABC1's magazine show Ses'khona.
For Nkosi this was a dream come true.
"It has been my dream to be in the media industry, but I did not know where to start. I never expected this to happen so soon in my life as I had just joined a community radio station.
"When Ses'khona came to Nelspruit looking for presenters, I auditioned, and look where I am now. I think it's too early to think that I have arrived. I need to give myself a chance to grow and learn more about the industry," says Nkosi.
The former Barberton community radio station deejay says she plans to go back to school.
"When I joined Barberton community radio, I had just completed matric. I have decided to enrol with Intec College to study business management. I want to empower myself," she says.
Nkosi, also known as "Butterfly", brims with confidence. She says she cannot wait to exploit all the opportunities that are suddenly opening up.
"I have a business mind and plans to work hard to achieve my dreams.
"I have a lot of things on my mind. I am also planning to open my own production company in the near future," says this bubbly lass.
Nkosi, who has just established her own events management company, also promises to take a lot of people by surprise soon.
She plans to record her own album and appear in at least one SABC television drama.
