I was at the JSE model boot-camp on Saturday, the 20th of July 2013. It was a boot camp for all aspiring models and anybody who wanted to improve their grooming and confidence. A day of intense model training.

I gave a talk to the young men and women, briefly explaining what the Miss Earth Program was and why it was so important to take care of yourself as well.

Being a part of the Miss Earth program has definitely improved my self-confidence and I have gained such a passion not only for the environment but also for going out and really humbling myself to the level of the people.

One thing I learnt from this particular experience is perserverance. To become anything in life, you need to push through any obstacle.

If it’s in your heart, you can achieve it.
