Give us a quick introduction to Chanade?
I am a type of woman that doesn’t dream of success because I work for it, I set goals for myself that I take step by step to achieve. I’m very energetic, hardworking and I take pleasure in helping others. Whatever task is handed out to me, whether it be in my home life or work environment, I will always insure that it is carried out to the best of my abilities. I am a sanguine personality with my secondary personality being a choleric which makes me an extrovert that is self-motivated to achieve.
You’ve been out of the modeling game for a while, what was it like being in front of the camera again?
I was nervous at first, seeing as though it has been a few years out of modelling, but the moment I was in front of that camera it was the best feeling ever and it all came back so naturally. I loved it. I have also worked hard on my body through Muay Thai classes, so it felt great to finally stand in front of that camera.
Which scene from this shoot with was your favorite?
My favourite scene was most definitely my last scene, it was a real challenge to balance on that high ledge without having to hold onto the water feature, and at the same time be in heels balancing on a thin pebble platform, but on camera it looks like a piece of cake. I sure did get a work out from that scene, my legs were stiff the following day.
In your opinion, what are weekend’s made for?
Weekends are made for good company and spontaneous outings with great music.
What is your idea of the ultimate party?
That would be a party on a yacht with all my friends, traveling the Greek islands during summer.
What the first thing you do when you wake up and the last thing you do before going to sleep?
I thankfully am a morning person so I generally jump out of bed and get going for the day, I need one coffee in the morning to get me started. My ultimate first and last thing of my day is to kiss my baby girl.
What one thing can’t you live without?
If you could spend R10 Million on indulgences and fun things, what would you spend the money on?
My goal would be to run out of pages in my passport. Traveling is the only thing that you can buy that makes you richer. It’s money that you spend to give you memories of a life time.
What does your ultimate fantasy consist of?
My ultimate fantasy consists of everything a women dreams of, from just a little girl. I want to be a Princess in my own story called life.
What drives you?
Every morning I wake up I remind myself that it takes a really brave person to be a mother, someone strong to raise a child and someone special to love someone more than themselves. I have a fire in my soul and I wasn’t born mediocre, now with my daughter I have double that drive to make her proud and independent.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when we mention:
Sexy? Just enough confidence.
Turn on? M4.
Turn off? Arrogance.
Sweet tooth? I will choose desert over any meal.
