Tarina Patel, Entrepreneur

While studying medicine in India, Tarina fell in love with the arts, and started shooting commercials. Post university and on weekends, she racked up almost 100 ads, leant Hindi and starred in Bollywood films, being the 1st South African to do so.

She has subsequently produced films that have opened in Cannes, started her own jewelry and clothing line; and is one of the most popular faces on South African television. After a long battle to save her fathers life, she has made a turn back to the medical world and started a foundation focusing on health and education for Africa. She is on the midst of penning a book to tell her heart wrenching but beautifully inspiring story with her beloved father.
