Real Name: Theresa Liteta
Lusaka-born Resa is an Event Planner, MC and Public Speaker.
She entered Big Brother Africa Hotshots in the hope of winning the grand prize and being able to pay off her mother’s debts.
“She has moved heaven and earth to ensure that I get my honours degree and in the process she has incurred debts,” says Resa.
She’s “extremely nervous, but delighted at the same time” at the prospect of having the continent’s eyes on her 24/7.
She says the viewers can expect “realness” from her. “No pretence, I’m an open book, I don’t hide my struggles because they’ve shaped me into who I am and I’ve used them as stepping stones,” she says.
“Also, lots of dancing and definitely lots of laughter!” Resa describes herself as “unique, colourful, bubbly, random and hyper”, saying that her inquisitive nature means that she won’t suffer in silence.
“I’m apologetic, my outspoken nature, I’m a go-getter, open-minded and spontaneous,” she says.
The Zambian says her motto is “close to perfect” because close is good enough.
She is going to miss her boyfriend’s hugs and may just impress fellow housemates with her cooking.
