While still in high school she had a cameo as a dancer on the M-Net musical drama series Angel's Song and in Grade 12 she and Moagi Seete wrote the song "Free", which recording artist and actress Thembi Seete recorded for her album "Music Is My Life".

She has participated in various music videos for artists such as Kwela Tebza, Thembi Seete, Justin Chalice, Denim, Pascoul and L'Vovo.

In 2012 she started a Business Management degree at Boston City College and pursued a marketing and sales career where she worked for Sam Mase Consulting, JTI and Kaizer Chiefs Mobile.
