Busisiwe Anda Johnson
Molweni. My name is Busisiwe Anda Johnson and I’m a second year Drama student at the university currently known as Rhodes. I believe everyone has a calling in life and mine is theatre. My journey in theatre has taken me to different stages in South Africa and in Germany (2017) working with award winning directors and multitalented cast members from whom I have learnt all I know and all I am as a performer today. In the words of the infamous Amanda Gorman, “The new dawn blooms as we free it. For there is always light, if only we’re brave enough to see it. If only we’re brave enough to be it”. I strive to touch, heal and transform lives with every minute I get to shine my light.
