It's not every day that you get to chill with one of your favourite stars.

Nomzamo Mbatha not only met Victoria Bechkham on Monday, she also spent some time with her in Soweto. The actress posted a snap with Mrs. Beckham on Instagram, which was accompanied by an inspiring message. They were with girls from the Kliptown Youth Project doing some work with the Elton John Foundation, HIVSA and CHOMA.

Nomzamo wrote: "We always focus our attention on those who are infected, but never those who are affected. Those who live to tell the story. What many may not know is that for practically my whole life, I have been affected by HIV/AIDS.. And watching loved ones lose their lives to the disease has left me with the deepest of scars that have not yet healed. So it's been my constant desire to help fight it in however way one can, as a way of my road to healing."

She said she was introduced to HIVSA two weeks ago and became a volunteer.

"Fast forward to yesterday... Spent it in Kliptown with the HIVSA Team, Elton John Foundation, UNAids and yes, VICTORIA BECKHAM.. We spent it speaking and motivating young girls about HIV/AIDS and the daily struggles they have to face.. Honoured to be a part of all of this.. But most of all, grateful to be realizing my calling.. One day I will tell my story to the world.. But for now, I'm happy to be sharing it with young people all over the country.. One By One."
