In 2016, Kim was approached by Spice TV to cover red carpet and backstage interviews at S.A. Menswear Week. She was a natural and was invited to cover a few fashion weeks after that, this is when the presenter bug bit and she was hooked. She wanted to learn more about this new exciting world that she was introduced to, a new challenge and opportunity to learn, grow and would allowed her to show her personality.
It was in December 2016 that she left everything she knew in Cape-Town and moved to the concrete jungle, Johannesburg with no job or plan, to chase this new-found dream. Kim went to multiple auditions before MTV Base South Africa’s Talent manager (at the time) found her on Instagram and invited her in for a screening, less than a week later she was offered the job as one of their NewsISH presenters which airs on DSTV channel 322 every day at 17:00.
