Who am I?

I am a South African teen, from "kasi/ekasi" which means the "hood". Raised by a hard working single parent. My mom always made me feel good about my self, she always remided me that I was handsome. She encouraged me to participate in pegeants, of which I did. And I believe they have prepared me to became more in the beauty industry.


What do I think about The Fashion Hero TV Series?

Honestly I could not believe that such platform exists after i had discoverd it. It is going to instil pride to people who have been made to believe that they should be a certain way to be beautiful or good looking, or to even be able to achieve certain goals in their life. I foresee The Fashion Hero series inspiring a lot of positive change in the beauty industry or anything linked to the beauty industry.


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

As part of the sad generation, I think what makes this generation sad is how the beauty industry created this image of what beauty is. And that everything besides that should not be accepted. And as one of those people who are considered to not meet the standard of a good looking person, but still believing that I am perfect as everyone else in the world. I would be a great role model because I can leave footsteps for people to be able to radiate the same positive energy, of feeling perfect anyhow your are. Because hating your self image can make you you own enemy, it makes you stand in the way of your dreams.
