This is where she calls home, it is this township in Johannesburg that motivated her to dream. As a young girl she entered a lot of beauty pageants, something that her older sister insisted on in order to boost her self-confidence. This created Pearl’s desire to be on TV and she started off as an extra on kids TV, on soapies such as Backstage and Generations. The more she was exposed to the entetainment industry, the more she wanted it.

‘’When I want something, I make it happen! I believe that every dream is attainable only if you believe in it and are willing to work for it’’
