Nokulunga Buthelezi, a 18 years old contortionist from Africa, is called "Snakegirl," because she can achieve seemingly impossible positions with ease.

Nokulunga's ability came naturally to her. When she was three, her mother one day found her asleep with her legs tucked behind her neck.

When she grew older after six years, she joined a touring circus in the U.S. and became a major star of "Afrika! Afrika!"

"My mum saw someone doing acrobatics and they mentioned that there were auditions for an American circus. She took me along and they were impressed. "

"When I went to America, I did not even speak English and I had no chaperone, just a tutor for my education. It was tough at first but my family supported me because they knew I was following my dreams."

Nokulunga, who now financially supports her mother, grandmother, aunts and cousins, said, "There are so many kids out there in Africa with talent, but I had something different."
