How would you best describe yourself as a person?
I am very goal-driven person and take on everything by force. Once I put my mind on something, there’s no stopping me. Alongside being self-motivated I am quite a social person with a great passion and love for people. Always shy at first, but boy, the moment those shields come off.
If you could live out one life changing experience, what would it be?
To meet my maker, because there’s an eternal life which I’m not keen to miss out on.
What drives you?
Purpose, people and passion.
You obviously have no issue looking good in front of the camera. What goes through your mind when posing for the perfect shot?
“Damn, I hope I’m doing this right.” [laughs], it’s not all just glam, but it mainly depends on the mood and theme we’re going for in the shot. Your thoughts have a direct effect on your facial expression and body language.
How much does experience play a part in getting that perfect photo?
Experience plays a major role in getting that shot. Each person knows their bodies, angles and attributes best. With experience you know exactly what works for your look and what doesn’t, making the job for the photographer a bit easier to capture. With experience you also gain a whole lot of confidence in front of the lens.
What does your dream photoshoot entail?
Without a doubt a shoot for World Swimsuit. Enough said.
In the current day and age, how important is social media to you?
In the modern day era we live in, social media is a definite force to be reckoned with. In all honesty, social media is my main source of financial income; whether it’s from my business in Network Marketing, collaborations with brands, influencing or part-time modeling – it all comes down to social media for me at this stage in my life.
When it comes to fantasies or fetishes, do you have anything out of the ordinary?
Nothing out of the ordinary, just fantasizing about my “happy ever after”, like any other woman.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you?
I am very emotionally invested in people, maybe too much in a sense that it tends to consume me emotionally. Also people tend to have a miss perception of my diet habits. My weakness is basically anything containing sugar and I have a real hard time saying “no” to it. Oops!
Define sex appeal?
“Sex appeal is 50% of what you got and 50% of what people think you have.” To me sex appeal is an immediate aura and charisma experienced at first sight.
What are you looking forward to most this festive season?
Spending time with loved ones and celebrating the ultimate purpose of the festive season.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when we mention:
December holidays? Beach and cocktails.
New Years eve? Fireworks and champagne.
Weird? My sister. Pshtt…
