Talia Kodesh matriculated from King David High School Linksfield in 1997 and went on to study Musical Theatre at the Tshwane University of Technology.
Like many other Alumni, Tali believes that KD gave her the foundation to enable her to succeed. In Tali’s words “King David focuses on every aspect of development, from academics to the arts to leadership, and nothing is overlooked. I learned that success comes from hard work and putting in the hours!”
