Johannesburg - TV personality Sade Giliberti is loving life in her new home in London - but it wasn't always like that.
"Settling in in London has been hard; I’m not even going to lie about it. In the first few months I questioned whether I had made a mistake or not. I missed my friends, my father, my dog, I even missed being able to just get into my car and go for a drive," she says.
"Besides missing all these things, after a while that itty bitty bit of self-doubt started to kick in - the kind that makes you feel like you did just the stupidest thing," she adds.
Sade says the reason for her anxiety was that she had left a "cushy life in SA" to moved to the UK "with a blank canvas".
"I left a 'cushy' life in SA to come hustle like a mad beast in a new country. No hand outs. Just me and all my experience, a showreel on a website and a few business cards. (AND...GO!) I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it, and that's exactly what I am doing," she adds.
