The lucky millionaires are those who wake up one day realizing they are exceptional and extraordinary. Then it’s all about their need and drive to share that talent. This holds true for contortionist, Nokulunga Buthelezi, except she actually accomplished this in her sleep.
That’s right, in her sleep. Nokulunga’s mother discovered her peculiar talent one night when her daughter was fast asleep. While the average person sleeps on their side, or even their stomach, Nokulunga’s body naturally found itself comfortable sleeping in a knot. Her legs were behind her head as she dreamed away. That one night changed her entire family’s life forever.
“Why am I like this? Why am I the only one who can do it?” proclaimed Nokulunga upon discovering her odd talent. The young girl was initially afraid, and her whole family feared something was wrong with her. Fortunately, this was not the case.
As it turned out, her great grandmother had the same talent, although she never utilized this unique ability. Sometimes, traits skip a few generations, and this appears to hold true to the inspiring story of Nokulunga Buthelezi.
Her mother was very supportive of her daughter, and once she confirm that this was actually a gift and not an illness, she enrolled Nokulunga in acrobatic classes. This become a passion for both mother and daughter alike. About 6 years later, that hard work paid off when auditions for American circus performers appeared in South Africa. Her family knew this was Nokulunga’s time to shine.

No doubt, savvy marketing by circus masterminds made her who she is today, as she flawlessly executes body movements that make viewers cringe with absolute ease. Most of her performances are completed in metallic, snake-print outfits as she headlines shows that have sold out to millions of spectators.
This brave girl left her home country knowing only how to speak her native language to embrace both the United States and Europe. Clearly, language was irrelevant when it came to her career. Actions speak louder than words, and Snake-girl was all people needed to see to know this would be a show to remember.
