Who am I?

Hey beautiful people, my name is Thapelo But i go by TeeTee McQueen or should i say "Well known" as TeeTee McQueen, Uh-huh!(Winks)😉... I am that person who has been told more than once that I am not gonna make it anywhere, especially in the entertainment modelling industry because of my sexuality😢and been rejected because I'm gay. And what is hurting the most is that, this has stucked into my mom's head for years now, because every time I try to register in the modelling industry she feels sad and cries for me,cause she is scared for me that I'm gonna get rejected again because of being me myself n I(Being the Proud Pretty smart Gay I am). But I don't care anymore about those REJECTIONS and NOs I got. because I know for a fact that, I'm bigger than those NOs and REJECTIONS they gave me. I mean 'i don't have to change a thing, the world could change its heart, no scars to my beautiful, I'm a star and I'm beautiful hey😊🔥👌'... and back to the question WHO AM I? = Well, I am a strong game changer. Ready to face my power, to inspire and to empower everybody out there and to show what I'm truly capable of and YES! ready to take up space, speak out loud, cement myself and conquer the universe.. ●I'm a big fan of the Late Alexander McQueen- who was a genius and whom I consider a great influence, a Fashion designer's designer, a visionary whose influence reached beyond the mastery of his cut and his fashion(RIP)🇺🇸❤ and a big fan of Gert Johan Coetzee🇿🇦❤. I am from the beautiful South Africa. An Aviation graduate at Ept Aviation Alt academy. I'm an Optimistc and a creative Taurus. always happy with my achievements, but I continue strive for bigger and better objectives. Modelling has always been my first career choice from the age of 12. I wake up thinking Modelling, and go to bed thinking Modelling. I am that person that helps shape someone's personality and characteristics. I'm a proud feminist. I am a people's person, and also a person they look up to for advice in any kind of situation ,and know that i will give those words of wisdom. I'm a person who enjoys meeting new people, I can almost always find common ground with strangers, I like making people feel comfortable around my presence. ■I'm that human being which doesn't give up easily(NO! NO!) and persevere when confronted by obstacles. I'm a risk-taker, I'm collaborative, courageous, flexible, I enjoy Jogging alot. I'm a workaholic, career focused. ● I'm À la mode- Fashionable&Stylish ●Alternative, Commercial and Runway Modeling are my favorites. ■■•Lastly but not least, I'm a TRUE BEAUTY. My beauty doesn't only come from outward adornment, such as elaborate Hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. But it also comes from inside, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth God's sight.

What do I think about the Fashion Hero TV Series?

I think it's the greatest TV series ever, the greatest platform to showcase your real and true beauty, and to inspire everyone out there who feel nor think they're not good enough to be models. And I must say, The Fashion Hero TV Series is a blessing to alot of people, and everyone who's gonna be watching this, will never ever doubt that they are valuable and powerful, and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve their own dreams.

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

Well, because My words has power, my pen has power as well my actions. I'm always positive, calm and confident in myself, have a strong beautiful personality. I always show respect and concern for others, be it you're straight/Gay/Lesbian/Young/Older black or white, Plus-sized/Chubby or Slender. I have humality and willingness to admit to mistakes. I do good things outside the job, such as raising funds for charity, saving lives and helping people in need. And In Every days of my life I show both young boys and girls,grown men and women how to live with integrity,optimism,hope,determination and compassion. And i always show passion and ability to inspire, and a clear set of values. I show selflessness and acceptance of others. I'm not judgemental at all, regardless of your background, gender, sexual-orientation, race, ethnicity, culture,etc. And I also proudly show ability to overcome obstacles and when I raise up my voice, i raise it up not so that I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard...We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back.
