Give us a quick introduction to Delanie?
If I could describe myself, I’d say I’m a passionate, goal driven and a fun loving person. I love challenging myself, setting goals, taking on new things and improving myself. I’m also a very adventurous person who loves exploring and being outdoors. I try to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle as much as I can. People who meet me will generally say I’m a kind, caring and soft hearted person.
What has been the highlight of your 2019 so far?
I don’t have a specific highlight of the year so far, but I feel blessed for everything that has happened so far. I moved to Cape Town, started a new coarse in the Beauty industry, improved my relationship with God and met someone really special who inspires me everyday.
What advice would you like to give your 15 year old self?
It would be to study hard. Don’t worry so much about popularity and fitting in. Don’t live off of other’s expectations, do what makes you happy. Take care of yourself, physically and mentally. Don’t force anything, if the door closes, it’s not your door.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
5 years from now I want to be content. I want to be working for myself or be in the process of owning my own beauty salon, have traveled to my dream destination, Greece, and be engaged/ be with someone I can potentially see marrying.
What drives you?
I love working on myself and improving myself. Reaching a goal I set for myself, gives me so much satisfaction and motivates me to set some more goals for myself. What keeps me driven is always trying to see the bigger picture. What you do today, will improve who you are tomorrow.
What was your highlight of shooting with Shaun (Epix Shoots)?
Shaun is such a sweet soul and I had so much fun working with him. He instantly makes you feel extremely comfortable. I’m so excited for our new shoot happening soon!
What type of shoot do you enjoy doing the most?
Swimwear shoots. Spending time on the beach and being surrounded by nature while shooting makes me feel like I’m in my element. I also feel with swimwear shoots you can step out of your comfort zone and just be yourself.
If you could represent any brand of the world, which would it be and why?
I would most definitely choose Adidas or Gymshark. I love working out and living an active lifestyle, hence why – I could wear Gymshark or Adidas all day, every day.
What type of guy (looks and personality) grabs your attention?
I don’t really have a type, I either find someone attractive or not. What definitely stands out for me is when I can see a guy lives a healthy lifestyle and takes care of himself. Personality-wise, I like someone who is caring, selfless, confident, who can make me laugh and who supports me and my goals. Also, how a guy treats other people tells me a lot about him.
What does your ultimate weekend consist of?
My weekends never look the same. There are some weekends when I’m up and about, spending time with my friends, working out or exploring. There’s other weekends where I’ll just stay at home, binging on series and spending time with my family.
Tell us something about yourself that you think will surprise us?
Very few people know that I absolutely love singing and performing in front of people.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when new mention:
Indoors? TV Series.
Attention seeking? Fishing for compliments.
Turn on? Confidence.
Turn off? Loud chewing.
Netflix? American Horror Story.
