She was raised by a single mother who died on the 29th March 2005.

As an active youngster, she enjoyed playing soccer and her dreams were shattered by an injury. She describes herself as a people’s person, friendly, kind, caring, loving, talkative and shy sometimes.

Currently doing Photo XP training at Inkanyiso media. She has a dream of studying photography on a full time basis. Her love for taking photographs, stems from personal journey as she enjoys being captured by photographers in which she participated in, at beauty pageants.

After having her pictures taken by Zanele Muholi, she saw an opportunity to learn and grow her photography skills.

“I want to see myself owning a studio, with cameras and other equipment and also extend the visual literacy to other people in my community”, said Collen.
