Who are the models in the industry that you look up to?

The models in the industry I look up too are the girls that are constantly traveling crazy hours all over the world to shoot swimwear and lingerie and all kinds of catalogues always being alone despite missing their families and friends for many years and that still manage to maintain a grounded personality and maintain relationships with the people that matter most. I look up to the chameleons/actors we call supermodels because that’s what they are; super beings that can pull just about anything off & make it look glamorous.

If you could win a date with any celebrity who would you choose?

If I could win a date with any celebrity, hmmm I don’t know any of them and I’m not really the type who cares about dating a celebrity, but I do have a specific fashion designer in mind…

What is something no one knows about you?

Something no one knows...I’m a home body, I have lots of hobbies, I collect knives & I like shooting, I guess it’s because I’m South African & grew up on a farm? I’m very chilled& hate drama, always up for an adventure& a laugh.

What is your favorite outfit in your closet right now?

Fav outfits always skinny jeans, tank top, heels; I’m very simple kind of a tom boy not big on accessories. I wear a lot of black & love incorporating leathers into my outfit.

What advice would you give your 12 year old self?

Me at 12.... Hmmm I wish I knew then what I know now, I’d tell myself to appreciate those days with my family because whether I believe it or not those are the vital days that shape you into who you are in your future.

What are your vices?

Vices: Certain foods at peculiar times, I love eating frozen chocolate in the morning, hanging out in bed watching & reading all kinds of things when there’s nothing I really have to do that day.

What is your favorite way to de-stress?

De-stress...whiskey & wine, hot bath, burning some candles, cooking a good meal, good music, good company.

When are you the happiest?

Put me on a beach with the one I love at sunset & watch the magic happen. I’m a cancer, that’s all I need.

What were you like as a kid?

As a kid I was pretty much the same, but running around barefoot between hundreds of fruit trees where I grew up making mud balls to bake in the sun & playing with all my animals. I’m animal crazy!

How do you want to be remembered?

I want to be remembered as an honest, loyal, caring, loving, fun, smart, spontaneous, true friend, amazing lover, great sister, daughter, mother, wife.... Haha, just all around good person. As long as I’m remembered, greatness was achieved!

What is the most adventurous thing you have ever done?

African safaris are amazingly adventurous, just planned a shark cage diving day on my upcoming trip to Cape Town, I’ve free jumped off a 17meter bridge into water, I like doing adventurous things, I think I get bored easy.

What do you do to get bikini ready?

What do I do to get bikini ready, work out harder, eat less carbs, and moisturize more?? Use veet to keep my legs smooth... Haha regular beach ready body routine, many lunges...paint my nails in some summery color I don’t know.

If you were to design a bathing suit, what would it look like?

If I designed a bathing suit, it would be simple, small (to reduce tan lines) it will be comfortable and I like neutral sandy colors, maybe a little bronze, earthy colors relax me. It would be made of this miraculous fabric that feels invisible on the skin & it would be really sexy to look at, that sounds like the ideal bikini.

What would it mean to you to be the next Beach Bunny Model Search Winner?

I would love to be the next beach bunny search winner because I think it’s a really great brand and would love to have my name affiliated with it & it would be an interesting little adventure to be an ambassador for beach bunny. I would like to get a bunch of bikinis and I'm guessing the shoot locations going to be someplace amazing that i would love to be at.  I think it will be an incredible opportunity working with people who are so talented and it would even better my career. I think I would be a good winner –haha - so pick me;)
