“I dream of one day becoming a film critic or writer,” says Lusaka, Zambia, born journalist Racheal. “At the Multichoice Talent Factory, I’m hoping to improve my journalistic skills, learn new skills and everything the academy has to offer.” Citing actor and filmmaker Owas Mwape as a role model – “most of his movies are a success and highlight real issues” – Racheal believes that across Africa there are a lot of stories but not enough being told, especially in our indigenous languages. Excited to one day flourish in the film industry, Racheal says she aims “to tell my stories in a language am comfortable with and encourage others to do the same.

Incredible storytellers are not given a Chance to tell stories because they don’t speak good English or they are not educated but I will be working with these people and I believe we will tell great stories that will shake the creative industry”.
