    Hi My name is Belindah Kea Modise I am a 24 year old lady from Botswana but I am currently residing in Pretoria. Acting has been my passion from a very young age and I have been trying to get into the industry with a story line that can pass my personality. After watching Suga season 1 I was really interested in getting a role in the series and have been trying my luck for the past 3 seasons. I now recently saw that there is yet again hope for me to try as I have seen that you have open auditions which I would love to try my luck on. If you feel i would fit into the concept you have in mind for season please do feel free to contact me at any given time. Your response will be highly appreciated. Kind Regards Belinda
