Renowned performer Melissa Müller recently won gold and bronze medals at the 2020 Namibian Championships of performing Arts.
She entered in two categories, namely acting (drama) and variety arts.
Müller’s acting piece was a monologue from the award-winning blockbuster “The Green Mile”, with her playing out a scene by Michael Clarke Duncan.
For the variety arts category, she chose to do the first kata in the Kyukoshin style of karate, named taikyok sono ichi, and fused the kata with a storyline of overcoming obstacles in her life.
“I won a gold medal for my acting piece and a bronze medal for my variety arts. Thanks to my gold medal in acting, I qualified to represent Namibia at the World Championships of Performing Arts in Los Angeles next year.”
The multi-talented performer from Walvis Bay dedicated her victory to Jesus Christ who she says saved her life.
“On 25 November 2017, I gave my life to the Lord before I embarked on the journey of my career as a multidisciplinary artist. Therefore, I dedicate all my talents to the Lord,” she said.
Melissa said that she learned that being consistent is key to success.
“Be honest and pure. Don't do things under the table or for money because your character will take you places money can't,” she said.
She appealed to anyone willing and able to assist in sponsoring or donating towards the fees for her trip to Los Angeles.
“This will help me to grow in character, allow me to get out of my comfort zone and challenge myself on a world stage because I will be competing with participants from other countries and learn from them. I will bring this knowledge back to my country and share it with others.”
