By Thys Khiba – Tumelo Thato Matjama from Klerksdorp, North West province in South Africa has been offered an opportunity to attend a summer camp organised by the New York Film Academy.

This will be housed at Harvard University from the 25th of June to the 2nd of July 2023.

Tumi needs funding for her travel expenses to Boston and the B1/B2 US Visa. All monies donated will be used to buy her an ‘airticket‘ and to do a Visa.

This will help Tumi to fulfill her dream of becoming one of the youngest proudly South African actress and filmmaker in the near future.

Speaking to Central News, Tumi confirmed she intends to teach other kids the skill of Film making, acting and how they can create jobs through film making. She enjoys photography, acting, modelling, fashion designing, netball, content creation.

In 2020, she trained as radio presenter and DJ by station director Nick Motloung. In 2021, she received an Oscar award by Kiddzpas Film and Production Agency presented by Amaqamata where Zanele Potelwa of SA FM was the programme director. In 2022, Tumi received an award for being the most film ready artist and prize money to the value of R3000. In the same year, Tumi was invited by Star FM to come and share her film industry knowledge with other young people for June 16.

This year, in April, she went on a fully funded cruise from Cape Town to Namibia for a film festival and awards event organised by Kiddzpas Film and Production Agency.

For more information, please contact her on: 067 218 4179 or email her on highlyfavoured.iam@gmail.com

To this point Tumi has received R592.55 donations from two individuals who want to remain as anonymous. Her target is R20 000.
