In between all of this, Carol hosted season one of “Raising Babies 101” on SABC 2 – the biggest parenting show in South Africa. Season 2 is currently in production.

Family comes first for Carol, who is an outspoken ambassador for the importance of family and unity. She makes use of her public persona and broadcasting platforms to offer love, support and a framework of values to many South African families nationally.
With increased social pressures and more women spending the bulk of their time at work, not at home, parenting has become increasingly difficult. Carol is a feminist who understands these circumstances first-hand and has become a powerful voice for political, economic, personal and social equality of all sexes.
When she is not performing voice-overs or in front of the camera, you’ll find Carol being an MC at various events, doing motivational talks, having fun with make-up – as she is a qualified make-up artist – honing her cooking skills and still dedicating time to being a family woman and mother to her four year old son. Carol is proudly Pan-African. She has a strong passion for Africa and African travel and is lucky enough to live this passion every day, as she is married to a Ghanaian and proudly raising a Pan-African family.
