Born in Zebediela, a small village in Limpopo, Salamina got into acting by accident when she took her brother for an audition. She was asked to audition and landed a part.

She received a Matric Exemption with distinctions in English, Afrikaans and History and later studied Corporate Communications at the University of Johannesburg (RAU).

She was a presenter for e.tv's kids' programming block CRAZe for five years, and also acted on the SABC1 youth drama series Soul Buddyz, from 1999-2002. In 2008 she won a Top Billing presenter search and began presenting the show in the same year.
