Nona Zuri is a Durban born and raised South African content creator & writer with a background in Psychology and the performing arts.

She began performing in theatre & choral music from the tender age of three and developed a soft spot for the stage & music. Coupled with public speaking, her adolescence was an impressive balance of the performing arts, written works & addressing audiences with emotive speeches. She went on to graduate in Psychology at the University of Johannesburg.

Nona went on to develop her personal brand Nona Zuri and years later, has given life to Mind & Leisure, a YouTube show that shares much of her psychological knowledge & curiosity developed by research, her experience volunteering & working on her own mind with the help of scientifically backed resources & qualified wellness experts.

Today, Nona is based in Cape Town and presents leisure, entertainment and style from a mindful point of view on her YouTube channel MIND & LEISURE. She is also known for her independent modelling work for the Make It Bright makeup academy & her role as Naledi, in the 2019 student short film, Finding Frankie.
