‘I was taught to never to fear anything, it has no reward”

Nomfundo Clarissa hosts the First Impression between 01h00 and 04h00 weekdays on Gagasi FM. She says she wanted to be so many things when she was young, from being an Actress to being a Journalist and a Chemical Engineer but she’s happy to have finally found her way on radio because she is shy and uncomfortable with face to face encounters. “I love radio because it allows you interact with an audience without seeing them and vice versa, but you still maintain that bond as if you know each other in person,” says Nomfundo. Despite being uncomfortable with face to face encounters, Nomfundo maintains that she is not however, fearful. “I was taught respect, but also I was taught to never to fear anything, it has no reward. I learned a lot from my Grandmother, she is a strong woman with a heart of gold who believes in working hard for what she wants. She is the reason why I’m here and I am blessed to have her on my side,” she says.
