Sharon From Muvhango Biography
Sharon Seno was born on 12th June 1994 in Kanye, Botswana. Even though Sharon was born in Botswana, she moved to South Africa for the main purpose of pursuing her career in entertainment. Since she was born in Botswana, she speaks Setswana and English fluently. The actress might have been born and raised in modest living conditions, but she had a big heart and goals that were larger than what you might imagine. She always wanted to be in the entertainment industry and that was exactly what she did.
Although little information is known about her father, her mother is called Naledi Seno. Right from the beginning, Naledi was very intentional about supporting Sharon’s career dreams and aspirations and even went as far as taking her to auditions as a means to show her support. Speaking of Sharon’s family, she has two brothers; the older one is Thabiso who is an architect, and the younger one called Talent who is into plant mechanics. Sharon does not have fancy educational qualifications like her siblings, but she is exceptionally skilled at acting and modeling which goes to prove that her talent is innate. However, she still maintains that she would love to go back and further her education very soon and we love that for her.
It wasn’t easy for Sharon growing up as a teenager. The beauty standards of her time did not celebrate the features that she had, especially her obvious height. She admitted to being bullied because he was tall and admitted that this took a toll on her confidence and overall self-esteem. Sharon’s mother has been a source of encouragement to her daughter who was at the time struggling with low self-esteem. It was her mother that always kept reminding her that she was beautiful despite what others said.
Fortunately, Sharon started to believe it when a modeling agency discovered her and reached out to her to join them. It was then that Sharon Seno started to realize that the very traits that kids used to bully her for were what modeling agencies were looking for. Apart from modeling and all, Sharon simply learned to be confident and not be put down by what other people thought about her. This story just goes to show how fleeting the beauty standards of society are. You can be considered ugly in one place and change environment and the people there consider you to be extremely beautiful. In all, it’s important not to base our self-esteem on how people view us because that can change in a split second.
The Botswana-born beauty is a raw talent when it comes to the entertainment industry. She’s been in beauty pageants functioning in many capacities as a model and a beauty pageant judge. Sharon’s journey to fame really started to pay off when she made it to the Top 5 in the Miss Botswana competition. As you already know, she is well into acting with her role in Muvhango launching her further into stardom.
