Zozibini currently resides in Gardens, but her home is Tsolo, eSdwadweni in the Eastern Cape.
She holds a ND: Public Relations Management from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology and is now completing her B.Tech in PR while working at Ogilvy Cape Town in an under-graduate programme.
Her role models are her parents. "My mother taught me the importance of being kind and humble and always helpful to those around me and my father taught me the importance of an education, hard work and discipline," she says.
She has three sisters, who she counts as her best friends and she would love to meet Caster Semenya to learn more from "women like her."
Zozibini is a hard-core Marvel fan, loves Game of Thrones and has a crush on Jesse Williams (Jackson Avery in Grey's Anatomy)
