Africa is filled with many geniuses in different walks of life. One of those kids is Lwandle, a 12-year-old ballet dancer from Eswantini (also known as Swaziland), who started out when she was nine.
In an interview with BBC for World Ballet Day, the kid dancer said she likes ballet because it instills a sense of discipline and gives her confidence.
She said what motivated her to keep practicing ballet is because her teacher, Velile, is always posting her sessions on social media where she sees how she exudes her skills.
Lwandle said in their dancing class, they are always prepared for the morning routine with warm-up exercises.
The girl dancer said one of the successes she has gotten was going the United States. She added that in all the competitions she went for, she got a lot of medals.
In parting words, she said she feels other kids have to do ballet because it is a hobby that inspires happiness.
