Nkepile Marole, an incredibly talented young individual born and bred in Polokwane; however, currently residing in Pretoria. I have been awarded with a once in a lifetime opportunity to attend the largest Convention in the world; IMTA in New York City. This happened after attending an audition and being selected by the IMTA International Talent Scouts to represent South Africa in New York City; July 2020. Amongst the International Talent Scouts were Blaze Johnson (The Voice America), Nate Butler (A&R-X Factor and ‘The Four’ on Fox), Rhavynn Drummer (Independent Casting Director – Tyler Perry Studios) Joey Zangardi-Dixon ( Director of Musical of Musical Theatre recruitment at the New York Film Academy) and Joey Hunter (Vice president of Modelwire and former co-president of Ford Model Management).
The International Modeling and Talent Association (IMTA) is a professional association of the finest and most successful modeling and talent training centers in the world. Since 1987, IMTA has become the recognized leader in putting new faces in front of the people whose business it is to identify the next rising star or supermodel. IMTA produces multiple week-long conventions, including one in New York and Los Angeles, consisting of modeling, acting, singing, songwriting and dancing competitions.
Music has always been part of my life and one of my greatest priorities. My heart's desire in this regard has always been to share a message of hope to the world; to show one that life is full of opportunities waiting for one to grab. To spread love and healing through the language of music and performing arts, and help one to break free from conformity and fear of unleashing the greatness they possess.
In order for me to attend the convention and live my dream, I need to raise the necessary funds for travel and accommodation and be a part of the convention. Any financial assistance I can attain will be greatly appreciated.
