My name is Noreen Gwagwagwa the 1st runner up of StarBrite 2014.Joining StarBrite has changed a lot of things about me and I am grateful for all the things that I learnt. Growing up, I’ve always been reserved and unable to relate to others. I joined StarBrite for one reason - to win..But to my surprise, there was more to be achieved than just the ultimate price. Boot camp taught me resilience and I must say I discovered myself. I am stronger than I can ever see, think or imagine. I accept myself better as well as others. Although it was such a long difficult journey, I have no regrets at all. I'm just the1st runner up, but in my mind, I'm so much more than that. I'm in my own league and I come into the world of art with great determination and focus, thanks to StarBrite.
