Personal messageMy name is Nikita-Aliyah Mgoduka, a 22-year-old model, dancer and aspiring actress born in Chatsworth KwaZulu-Natal and grew up in Eastern Cape. I started modeling at Church and dancing in my community I lived in. After losing my mother in 2007 when I was 11 years old , I had no other way but to find shelter for myself. I ended up at the orphanage after losing my parents.
I still worked very hard to make my dreams come true I wanted nothing but success in modeling and arts industry. From a tender age, I always had this habit of collecting my agemates and younger ones, we'd gather and I'd always be in front of them all sharing different dance moves, singing, pretending as if we are on stage, acting how our parents used to speak and how we respond. We would walk as if we on TV.
After a long hurtful journey in the industry, finding it hard to get to where I want to be I auditioned for It's Arts Africa International Uprising Talent Auditions in front of the International Scout Ms Kim Myers, where I was nominated to go and perform in the United States Of America in July 2019. Auditions were conducted in Sandton City Silver Star Casino on October 2018.
I will be performing in Florida USA, from the 3 July 2019 to 07 July 2019 and return to SA Modeling and Dancing, also exploring other avenues ie visiting New York Film Academy.
When I was younger I had a dream to own schools, academy, orphanages so I can care for the less fortunate and give them skills instead of food which is exactly what I needed growing up. But unfortunately for me, there has been no one there to support nor assist with anything.
I have already started acting on the dream of a 15-year-old me. I have an Academy I have already conducted the 1st annual Talent Showcase for youth.
Should I get assistance to go and perform in the United States Of America, doors for myself and others aspiring artists will just open. The world will start believing in Modeling and Arts. Modeling is not for only the comfortable humans in life but modeling is a talent for some of us.
I change and reconcile communities through my passion. I live what I am and willing to do so till my last days.
I have visited so many avenues but with no positive feedback.
Funds raised will help cover:
Visa to USA: Estimated costs by One Visa World is R5500. 00
Registration fee for participation: R78000. 00 (I have only secured R14 000.00)
