Who am I?

I’m an ordinary girl who believes that whatever you put your mind to can come true. I’m very bubbly and outgoing. I love meeting new people and learning different things. I love to contribute towards other people s happiness and help where I can. I enjoy listening as much as I’m also a talker. My motto in life is what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger from personal experience. I love music and art . I have a great sense of humor that I even laugh at my own jokes sometimes. I am a professional makeup artist and freelance model. I enjoy challenging myself to explore my strength and abilities. My biggest passion is people. I believe that I’m a kind and loving person. I’m very patient and I believe that everyone has a great potential. I love staying fit and healthy. I enjoy Photoshoots and sometimes styling. I’m family oriented even though that means different things to people. I’m not shy I’m very spontaneous.Lastly I am who my mom raised me to be a good friend,good mum and a good person.

What do I think about the Fashion Hero TV Series?

It’s an outstanding platform to showcase talent of ordinary people. I am quite impressed at the opportunities offered. I think the world can learn from this show it teaches us equality and love. Hence so many people are confident to enter this competition because people feel welcome and comfortable. Most people are doubtful of themselves because of how the beauty industry portrays itself most of the time. It’s great to see so many people without fear reaching out to what could potentially change their life. Heroes come in different shades and etc and that’s exactly what this program is about which is absolutely magnificent.

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

I can prove that anyone has the potential to live their best life. If a girl like me who grew up on a small farm in rural North West in South Africa can aspire to archive such a great dream anything is possible for all of us. Regardless of where or who you are. I want to be the person people think of when in doubt to enter the industry. I want to show women especially that your life is not over when you’re in your late thirties and have kids. That the dream you had a child can still happen.
