When I was a kid I lived in the music school playing the piano and singing, it has always been my escape. My biggest dream other than completing my law degree is to build an arts school in the Eastern cape, there is so much raw talent that the world needs to see in my home province.

God is really creative, I mean just look at me! When I was a kid, I was smart and I didn't want to get married, now look at my life! When I'm not singing, I'm saving lives or playing netball. I dream of becoming a surgeon.

I used to have shows/concerts in my room for 60 000 imaginary people everyday, wait… I still do. When I'm not singing, I'm watching reruns of old series surrounded by snacks instead of doing my readings.

Hlumelo Ledwaba  Hlumelo Ledwaba

Singing is my name, music is my game. If I'm not doing that I'm rushing somewhere with a bag that is usually bigger than I am. I like random things and general knowledge. “I like cereal, I like chocolate milk”, if you know where that comes from, we can be friends.

Being raised by a teacher, my focus has always been on academics, as a result I've always been a top achiever. Now that I'm an adult I'm reaping the fruits of my labour. If I'm not leading in my house committee, dancing, studying or with family, I'm singing in the Wits Choir.
