Philisiwe Sefatsa, the new face on the SABC1 news reading team, left her home, job and husband a year ago in pursuit of greener pastures in Jo burg and got more than what she had bargained for.

The former Ukhozi FM afternoon drive show host left her DJ husband Lucky Sefatsa and their two children in Durban.

This young, vibrant, ambitious news anchor made her first appearance last week on the SABC1 prime time news.

Sefatsa, 28, from Inanda, north of Durban, was offered a position in the SABC1's newsroom as the news bulletin producer.

In just under a year working behind the scenes, an opportunity to move in front of the cameras presented itself and she grabbed it with both hands.

This beautiful, intelligent, ambitious young woman says she is living her dream and enjoying every minute.

"I went for auditions and I got the job. I grew up looking up to people like the late Sibongile Sokhulu and Khanyi Dlomo, but my dream to see myself on a camera reading news to South Africa seemed like an impossible one."

Sefatsa said when she came to Johannesburg she hoped her husband of six years would join her.

And early this year Lucky and their two children joined Sefatsa in Johannesburg.
