I am beautiful and bubbly with a smiley face. My name describes just that. My name is Zintle. It means a whole lot of beautiful things that a person can think of.
My parents named me Zintle because I was this big round-faced and adorably cute baby – basically I was a beautiful baby.

I like my name. No! no! no! I love my name. I like the sound of it – it makes me smile.
My nickname is Zimdollar. It comes from my surname – Zimba. People love my surname more than my name. You know people tend to make your surname your name? So they changed my surname to my name. They sometimes call me Simba roars with flavour – very funny! But I like Zimdollar even though I don’t have money now, trust me in the near future I will be rich socially and economically. That I know!
