"I want to be a successful international model and get to travel more."

Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.

Tell us about yourself: Why do you want to work as a model? Why are you interested in modelling as a career?

I have the right attitude and personality and a bit of experience, and looks to be a successful model :) although I don't have enough experience yet, I'm ready to work random hours and schedules, in a nut shell I'm ready to give it my all.

How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?

I believe in every career you do, you need to keep learning and self improving, so yes modeling education is important you learn different things that you didn't know before that will make you gain more work, and for models who don't have the right confidence can gain the confidence from modeling education,I'm actually enrolling in one in September when I'm in Capetown.

What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?

Confidence and believing in yourself, it's not about the looks or height if you believe that you are a great model, then you will be one.

What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?

When I was growing up I used to see Naomi Campbell on magazines and I always told myself that one day I will be on magazines and billboards,I'm currently in Paris and I have two test shoots with great photographers, so I'm trying to get as many great pictures as I possibly can, so hopefully a big client will see them and decide to work with me. I want to be a successful international model and get to travel more.

How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?

I'm a very open minded person, as a former owner of a business, you learn a lot about patience and friendliness as you deal with different people everyday. I also love trying out new things so whatever a client throws at me I'm always eager to go with it if it fits my values and it feels right to me.

Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?

Yes I do eat nutritiously, I do exercises at home and also go to barre classes 3 times a week, I believe that I have to take care of my body so it can take care of me.

What is your dream role as a model?

To be an ambassador of an international brand to be on billboards and magazines, and get to encourage a lot of young girls who don't believe in themselves that everything is possible if u believe in yourself

Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?

One of my motto is the 'the sky is the limit'. I go all out for what I love be and have passion for, in this case, modeling I do any job that feels right to me.

State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?

I currently closed my business so I can have time to concentrate on modeling as it is what I really love, I also love traveling and I would travel anywhere in the world for a job and also work extra hours if need be, I would consider both full time and part time should an opportunity present itself.

What was your favourite experience so far?

My memorable experience so far was having to shoot on a moving motorcycle for a person who is terrified of motorbikes, I took my fear and turned it into a fun memorable experience :)
