Imagine if you were one of the people who were to experience a well known, not only loving, joyful but also sharing celebrity who celebrated her own birthday with the community.

They call her the Queen of Gospel, Dr Rebecca Malope, she came along with many other celebrities in to our Township Alexandra. Many, many people from around the Township were invited and they pitched. This event was a success because of an organization that wanted to give back to the community; ‘Face of fortune’ who had support from Diva Divine; one of the biggest salons in South Africa ‘wow’ and this was an opportunity for me to get a free hair do.

My presenting skills developed by my lecturer Mr. Ramabula saw that a dram queen who is on the TV screens loved the way I presented and she wants to meet with me soon. I just can`t sleep today, I’m excited and I have butterflies to the bottom of my stomach. This event has given me a chance to appreciate my self because I knew I was confident but I never thought around BIG STARS.

I am so glad Alexandra got an opportunity into experiencing such a day. We had all local organizations coming in and benefiting from this event; the old-aged, the orphaned children, the vulnerable, the poorest of the poor, and disabled people.

This was so touching I even cried, like a local woman who was catering for the event said, “this event is not all about the money but teaches us how to share and love,” after all I have learnt many lessons at the event.
