Lebohang Mazibuko

Lebohang Mazibuko’s initiation into storytelling has already started in 2003, in Grade 8, when she chose to specialise in drama at the National School of the Arts. She describes herself as a ‘student of the world of storytelling’ and hopes to grow from telling stories on stage to writing literature. Thanks to her background and having obtained her B Tech degree in the Dramatic Arts at the Tshwane University of Technology, Lebo could immerse herself in the performing arts through poetry performances, theatre plays, short films and television. She is also currently working as an acting coach.
