I am 2nd born in my family.I first joined Mpopoma High School drama club at the peak of their success but could not stay with the team due to circumstances beyond my control.I later rejoined the group as IYASA in 2009 and I am working my way up everyday.


I want to achieve as much as I can from the arts and to be an independent artiste who can sustain her career.I work very hard everyday to achieve this.


I have grown up a lot over the years as an artiste and I have become an important part of IYASA.I feature in most productions and my other passion is designing costumes for the group and managing them at the same time.I guess I just love fashion! I think being at Iyasa has changed me a lot, I am more confident and that to me is a great achievement.

Inspiring words from Dorcas

Never loose sleep over what people think about you because they are also busy worrying over what you think about them.Life is what you make it.
