My name is Siphosethu Fanti and I am an animation and hip hop dancer from Cape Town. I have been dancing for 6 years and it has become a great passion of mine.
In October 2016 I received an opportunity to attend the International ARTS Talent Showcase run by Just You Model and Artist Management director, Elsubie Verlinden. I was selected in a nationwide talent search to perform in front of international talent scout, Kim Myers, for a chance to represent South Africa at the Applause Rising Talent Showcase (ARTS) in Orlando, Florida in July 2017.
I am very happy to say that I was selected and I will be performing at the ARTS where I'll be exposed to agents and production companies from around the world. It's also a learning opportunity as I will be attending workshops teaching me about the entertainment industry.
My dream is slowly becoming a reality however I need assistance. My mother is a domestic worker and I just finished Matric so we can't afford the trip ourselves. Please could you consider assisting us with funding. I would really appreciate any assistance you could provide and by doing so you'll be contributing in my pursuit to reach my dreams and changing mine and my mother's lives. It's also a great opportunity to show the world the talent South Africa has!
