Giliberti has been in the limelight since she was seven years old. She became a household name when she started presenting a South African youth and children’s’ lifestyle show YoTV on SABC 1.
She later worked behind the scenes, producing and writing for the show.
After leaving YoTV in 2007, Giliberti joined the local version of the international hit reality dance series, “So You Think You Can Dance.”
In 2010, she came fourth in the third season of M-Net’s ‘’Survivor South Africa: Santa Carolina” winning a whopping R125 000 for Childline, a non-profit organisation which helps to protect children from violence, also advocating for children’s rights in South Africa.
Since moving to London in 2015, the star has worked on different productions as an actress, content producer and presenter.
Giliberti recently revealed that she is an advocate for mental health and wellness and does her bit in the battle for equality and representation for all LGBTQI+ humans and ethnic minorities.
