EMBARRASSING MOMENT: 

I was asked to call some well-known Dj at some event a few weeks ago & had no idea who he was, so I walked up to a random stranger & whispered that they help point him out. The random stranger turned out to be the famous Dj.
IF A YOUNG GIRL WANTED TO BE A MODEL WHAT WOULD YOUR ADVICE FOR THEM BE? dont ever let fear make you think you cant succeed. Push past the doubts.


HOW DO YOU KEEP A FIT AND HEALTHY BODY? I dance. & yoga.


HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE? laidback boho-chick meets grunge at the office. (Does this make sense?? LOL)


HOW DO YOU MAINTAIN A HEALTHY SENSE OF SELF-ESTEEM AND POSITIVE BODY IMAGE? Acceptance. Love every bit of your imperfect body, coz lets face it; cant be anything than what you are.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE CITY IN THE WORLD TO VISIT AND WHY? WHERE WOULD YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL TO NEXT? I'd like to travel the world first before I can come ba& answer this question
WHAT MOTIVATES OR INSPIRES YOU TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS? WHAT ARE SOME OF THOSE GOALS? that I refuse to not be all I can be.
My goals: venture into media & publishing; become a TV host, own a publishing house, etc.


IF YOU WERE STRANDED ON A DESERT ISLAND AND COULD ONLY HAVE ONE BEAUTY PRODUCT AND ONE FASHION ITEM WITH YOU, WHAT WOULD THEY BE AND WHY? sunscreen; very essential!
As for the fashion item I'd say a scarf. (Is a scarf even a fashion item? Im so clueless when it comes to fashion!)


WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY? my 'conversations with God', either through writing...or meditating.

WHICH WELL-KNOWN DESIGNERS HAVE YOU WORKED WITH AND WHICH FASHION SHOWS HAVE YOU TAKEN PART IN?: Indashio (from America), Gert Coetzee, Thula Sindi, Mustafa Hasselini, Haus Of Stone, Black Trash, Botho Chalebgwa, etc.
Fashion shows: India Culture show (Kuala Lumpur), Colour In The Desert (Gaborone), DTC Diamonds Awards Fashion Show (first face. Gaborone), Botswana Fashion Week, Arts & Culture fashion show, Zimbabwer Fashion Week, etc.


WHAT MADE YOU FIRST BECOME A MODEL? my class teacher back in 2004 believed I had the "it" to be the first Motswana to scoop the title of Nokia Face Of Africa...I refused to go audition even when she suggested coming with me. Then Kaone Kario won it.
Years later in 2009 I met a lovely lady (she is a model in Malaysia) by the name of Valerie Vanessa, her cousin Evangeline Jintoni, & friend Avva Faheem; they styled, directed, & shot my first photoshoot ever. I started believing in me from then onwards, & I havent stopped.


HOW DID YOU FEEL WHEN YOU DID YOUR FIRST EVER FASHION SHOW OR PHOTO-SHOOT? nervous, unsure, ecstatic. Many fashion shows & photoshoots down the line & I still get the same feelings. As long as I still have this feeling then I'll still pursue this field coz being nervous, I believe, shows I care enough to not want to mess up.


HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE CONTROVERSY OF THE SIZE 0 DEBATE IN THE INDUSTRY? its a sad thing that beauty has been given a name; Size 0.
This belief that Size 0 dictates perfection is a sad cruel course more-so that the media fuels it. As long as you are healthy, the Size 0 concept is just a fantasy one shouldnt tamper with.


WHAT ARE YOUR GUILTY PLEASURES FOOD WISE? lately I've taken up to eating chocolate nearly everyday.


WHAT BEAUTY TIPS DO YOU SWEAR BY?
1. Dont ever go to bed with make-up
2. No alcohol-based products for your skin
3. Rest enough
