Who am I?

Hey, my name is Bunono Maseti, an African girl from South Africa. Born and raised in the small city of Port Elizabeth. I’m of the Xhosa ethnicity and I enjoy the diversity of my country. I’m an avid reader - favourite author being J.K Rowling - and I love playing hockey.

What do I think about the Fashion Hero TV Series?

I love acting and performing on stage. It’s the one place where I can comfortably become alive and live within the vessel of the character and portray the character’s truth, wearing the mask to unmask the characters thoughts, decisions and circumstances. I love poetry. My dream is to be the best that I can be, using all resources available to, creating my purpose and making my life happy.

Why would I be a great role model for this generation and inspire people as the new face of the Fashion Hero?

I can make a difference by definitely showing the world that being dark and curvy as a young woman is beautiful. I’ve always wanted to become a model and I believe that with my height of 1.57m I can inspire more to not be afraid and to take the chance of becoming absolutely anything you want to be. I want to put South Africa on the map as being internationally recognized without having to change being African, to keep my accent and heritage.
