Dumela! I affirm you, I believe in you, and I see great potential in you. You my friend are going to do some amazing things.
1. What is something not too many people know about you?
Not too many people know that I played 5 sports as a kid. Let anyone outside of my family tell it and they'll say "Faith is too 'girly' and 'clean cut' for sports", but I was the only one of my siblings good at them haha.
2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?
I am passionate about community, being an ally, and using my resources to help everything and everyone around me grow. I thrive in environments where creativity is presented; In places where it is not, I create it! I am a firm believer in the power of words and that through them we shape and create our realities. I love handing my time over to dancing, appreciating art, food, culture, scenery, and music. What an amazing privilege it is to be able to create art, be it, travel, see the world, and touch those around you just by simply being yourself. These are the things that fill my adventurous little heart. At the basis of all my current and future endeavors, my passion lies in helping shape better realities, and I intend to do just that through media, art, business, and design. I want to inspire, give hope, be light, share and create love in the hearts of others; and because we know that our words shape our realities, I can say that I will inspire, I will give hope, I will be a light, I will share and create love in the hearts of others in all that I do.
3. What are your goals for the future?
Ahh, so many haha. For starters I am aiming to be signed under a major modeling agency, to work with some of my favorite brands, to start to receive more paid work with modeling, to reach 500 subscribers on my YouTube channel this year, and to make my big move to sunny California.
4. What is your definition of success?
Success is the ability to consistently be flourishing in the things that you love, be that with or without money. Success is constant growth. It's going after your goals, never giving up, and finding what makes your soul happy. Success is being rich in your heart... and if you ask me, that is the most worthwhile treasure of them all.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're currently working on.
Right now, the majority of my time goes to my personal Dumela project. For me, that is the project of self. Doing any and everything that affirms my being makes me believe in myself all the more, and uncovers the potential in me. One of the subprojects in that grand scheme is my YouTube channel. I’m going to create a safespace, a virtual sister or friend, a space to laugh or cry, and many other things that YouTube was for me growing up.
