NINE-year-old Mia Boughan is set to represent the country in the upcoming “Show Your Talent” competition in New York in June with her dance skills.

This is after she participated in the “Show Your Talent” audition in Cape Town.

The Grade 4 learner from Staats Primary School regards the opportunity as a dream come true, representing South Africa at one of the biggest talent shows in the world.

She said that it will be an absolute honour nd that she can’t wait to show everyone that hard work pays off.

“It has always been my dream to represent my country, and now I finally got the opportunity to do that with something that I love doing the most.

“It will be happening at a city where dreams come true. This means everything to me, and my family is so proud of me and is supporting me throughout,” she said.

“This competition includes a variety of activities from modelling, dancing, acting to signing,” said Boughan.

However, Boughan needs funds to cover the costs for her trip to New York.

She needs to raise an amount of nearly R60 000 to cover for her expenses, including flights and accommodation.

“I have been struggling to raise the funds to make my trip to New York a reality, but I am still working on getting sponsors.

She said that she started taking her talent serious when she won the overall Junior Talent at Toddlers and Tween of the World in 2022.

“I believe if your dreams don’t scare you, they are not big enough. It doesn’t matter where I am, I will always be dancing.

“I did modelling for about three years because I wanted to follow in my sister’s footsteps, but soon discovered that it’s not for me but when I am dancing I am free and happy.

“After winning the Overall Junior Talent, I started training and always tried to improve my dancing skills.”

“My hobbies are netball, hockey, art and public speaking but my passion is and will always be dancing.”

She said she practises every week with her coach, Theane Willemse, however also manages to prioritise her school work.
