Jade believes that the biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams. And, she is a real go-getter with big dreams!
Multi-faceted, multi-talented Jade was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. She started working at age 15 and had several jobs while studying at The University of Cape Town; however, this was never The Dream. Jade longed to act, sing and to be a television presenter.
In 2015 she queued for hours in the rain and along with thousands of hopeful candidates, auditioned for South Africa’s biggest presenter search reality competition, and won! Her dream of earning a coveted place on South Africa’s most prestigious and longest running lifestyle show, SABC3 Top Billing, became a reality.
She is now completing her degree online while traveling the world interviewing celebrities and visiting the best travel destinations for the show. She is also a singer, actress, MC, voice-over artist, entrepreneur and BCom Student.
With a big passion for life, Jade enjoys a wide range of activities that help her achieve maximum vitality and enjoyment. Performing in front of an audience has always been her passion and she firmly believes it is a path that she is destined to pursue.
When it comes to sports, Jade is first to be picked. She has played nearly a dozen sports at A-team level and obtained provincial colours in water polo. When she is not in front of the camera, she is always doing some sort of physical activity or anything adventurous and fun. In fact, she has a knack for most sports.
Jade is enthusiastic and expressive, focused and hardworking. She has a big heart and is naturally inquisitive. Jade likes to understand how things work and has a deep empathy for people and animals, and does a good bit for community causes and charity initiatives. She loves challenging herself – if she doesn’t already know how to do it, she will learn how to. She completely immerses herself in a project. Her very diverse interests enable her to relate to people, share commonalities and connect with them on many levels.
We look forward to sharing another year of dreams coming true with Jade.
