Her dream of becoming a famous comedian led to her quitting her full-time job as a lawyer
Thenjiwe ‘Tay’ Moseley from KwaMashu in Durban – who is now based in England – says she resigned from her legal job in November.“I always loved the stage but things were not going well for me at the time so I decided to focus on my career as lawyer until a break came,” said Thenjiwe.Thenjiwe graduated in Performing Arts and Drama from Durban’s University of Technology in 1998. She went to live in the US for two years in 2001 before moving to in England.“I continued studying, this time in law, and eventually got a job in this field. “But because my heart and mind was not in what I was doing, I did a lot of research to make my dreams come true,” she said.Thenjiwe got her first gig early last year at her local Wokingham Theatre. “I was amazed by the turn- out and people just loved my jokes.“Then I began to get many gigs . . . and that’s when I decided to quit my job.“I always make sure that I look presentable and give my audience something good,” said Thenjiwe.In 2005, she married Jack Moseley and they have one child.
