Tumelo Johwa
Tell us what drives you? What is your true passion in life?

Waking up in the morning and food. My true passion in life is creating whilst I’m still breathing.I’m the type of person who daydreams during a daydream and reconciles with reality.

 How did you find your passion and how old were you?

I must’ve been 8years old sitting at capitol cinemas in Gaborone. I’m such a dreamer.

What about your passion appeals to you the most?

The magical aspect of escapism of your own dimension to create a reality for someone else.

What drove you to make money from your passions?

While I was studying in cape town I fell upon hard times financially, it became a means of survival and blessed me with an opportunity to exercise and nurture my passion. I earned money modelling, acting, hosted my own poetry show and landed a job working on a television show for SABC.

 

When was the first time you were paid for your passion?

2007 doing a tv commercial for PEP

Doing better. I am obsessed with pushing the envelope.

What do you have to say to all of the people who doubted you?

They are a non-factor. However, if they are still watching, let’s hope it affects their lives positively.

What advice do you give to aspiring creatives who look up to you?

To never stop believing in themselves and that “an idea not coupled by action remains just as small as the brain cell that conceives it.”

Meet CreatepreneurAfrica- Rosie Motene- Shining Light on Africa

Tell us what drives you? What is your true passion in life?

Women, Africa, and the arts.

I love being a woman and I am incredibly proud of who I have become. As I
have moved into my 40’s I’ am loving and cherishing the inner strength and
power that I have.
I simply love our continent from his challenges, hidden treasure and power
that it holds.

How did you find your passion and how old were you?

I was a dancer as a child and completed my exams all the way to teachers
level.
After school, I was accepted into the BA dramatic arts and it was at the end of
my first year when a friend pushed me to audition for a play. On the curtain
call on the premiere night, being on that stage, I realized that that was where I
needed to be.

What about your passion appeals to you the most?

mmm…… the fact that I can live, eat and breathe it. I can incorporate it into my
everyday life.

What drove you to make money from your passions?

I strongly believe that if you are not passionate about your career and work, you will be unhappy and bored. So over the last decade, I only work on passion-driven projects

When was the first time you were paid for your passion?

I was in a beacon chocolate advert, whilst studying at Wits.

What kept you going when you thought about giving up?

I have never thought about giving up. I believe that talent is a gift and for me to
give up on that gift from God, would be an insult.

What motivates you every day to be even more successful?

I have inspired many women from all around the world. I am also aware that
my life can be taken away at any point and so every day I aim to live my best
life.

What do you have to say to all of the people who doubted you?

Hahahahaha it’s not about you but thanks for the push and drive.

What advice do you give to aspiring creative is who look up to you?

Take time to discover you, create a path that defines you and feeds your passion.
Build a thick skin and go out and be whomever you want to be.
