"By the age of 19, I already had two children. My parents tried so hard to show me the right path, but I was young and naive." She told the publication.

And even though by the age of 19 she had two kids, Sana's parents were still supportive and encouraged her to continue with her schooling, unfortunately, a few months down the line, Sana fell pregnant again with her third child.

Regardless of having three children at the age of 19, her parents were determined for their daughter to go back to school and finish her studies.

Sana explained that she did not want to return to school as that meant she would be in the same grade as her younger sister. Filled with embarrassment, Sana never returned to school and didn't get to finish her matric.

But Sana is far from the life she used to live and attributes her first taste of the acting industry to her friend Winnie Khumalo.
