Through her diplomatic upbringing Wabei is an international girl with international interests. She is extremely well informed, so that, coupled with her buoyant and outgoing nature, there has developed a deep interest in, and concern for, the lot of mankind. Adrian Underwood, Moira House School, Eastbourne.

Wabei was without a doubt one of the most original and talented students I encountered. It is clear that her interest as a writer and producer have developed as much as her acting, and she cannot fail to make a major contribution wherever she goes. Tony Church, Honorary Associate Artist, Royal Shakespeare Company.

I have had several opportunities to witness the outstanding work of Ms. Siyolwe has done as an actress, educator, director, and promoter. Her ability to encourage widespread participation in cultural events impressed me tremendously. R.L Hofmeyr, Director of Arts, Ministry of Education and Culture, Namibia.

Wabei directed the project through every stage of production from script writing, editing, cast of actors, rehearsals, recording and final control. In this process her experiences shared with the NBC personnel were very invaluable. The radio series ran for five weeks and was very successful judging from the unusually high number of phone calls from teenagers participating. Local newspaper reviews acclaimed it. Teenagers and parents asked for more. I have a great deal of respect for Wabei. She is an exceptional person, imbued with a passionate zeal for media and arts, honest and hardworking. Hilifa Mbako, Head of Radio Services, Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC).

Thank God for Wabei! She not only cast the movie brilliantly, but she also turned the kids into polished hoofers in just a few weeks. Her choreography looked spectacular because she has such an intimate knowledge of the film process and what looks good on camera. Michael MacCarthy, Managing Director Movie Makers International, (PTY) Ltd.

Wabei knows current developments in broadcasting and media and sees the world from a unique lens and her pursuit of seeking authentic representations of culture will contribute to the scholarship of African artistic forms.
