Quick minute with Natasha Thahane

This June, we celebrate all things youth in our latest edition of S Mag.

Despite Youth Month having been born from racial injustices, this edition is meant to be celebratory.

A celebration of the present and what's to come - a collection of some of the brightest minds in our community.

That is why our main cover star is Natasha Thahane, who speaks to us about her immense success so far this year, what she holds dear and future plans.

Here is more of what makes the celebrated actress tick.
