We caught up with Miranda recently, to find out a bit more about her:
What drives and motivates you on a daily basis?
Knowing that nothing is against me- it is your perception of the world at that time… Therefore everything is for you depending how you would like to see it. Positivity is key! ALWAYS!
Where would we find you on your day off?
At home in my garden with the kids, or in front of the TV catching up on my fave programmes, or in the studio working…
Books or movies?
Both – it depends on my mood…
What CD are you currently listening to in your car?
Jazmine Sullivan (reality show) is on repeat in my car and phone at the moment, Mali Music (The Transition of Mali) and Thandiswa Mazwa (Belede).
What is your favourite item in your wardrobe right now, and why?
I have a loose palazza jumpsuit that I looooove! It fits in everywhere and it is uber comfy.
If you could be a superhero or cartoon character – which one would you be, and why?
Kuasa…She is African and controls water…right now we could use a superhero like that for the survival of our world in it’s entirety.
What is something that someone has said that sounds like a compliment but is actually insult?
You are much prettier in person, or you carry your weight well…how bizarre!
What is your favourite quote from your parents?
Children learn to smile from their parents (this can be interpreted in so many ways to benefit your life) –
You will never know a love of a parent until you become one.
What will finally break the internet?
I have no idea-I am not technologically inclined as much…I keep with the basics to get by and keep afloat.
I also can’t keep up to tell you the honest truth!!
