Starting at the age of 17, she learned from industry icons like Lilian Dube and Sello Maake kaNcube. Now, as she bids farewell to the acting world, Sophie offers words of encouragement to aspiring talents, urging them to pursue their dreams and never give up.

In addition to her acting career, Sophie has become an advocate and motivational speaker after being diagnosed with diabetes. Despite facing various health challenges, she has overcome them and debunked rumors of her demise. Sophie Ndaba’s journey continues, albeit in a new direction.
