Occupation: Model and Entrepreneur

Three words that describe you: Fun, Perfectionist & Straight forward



What is your philosophy in life?

Just live man.  

When do you feel most like yourself?

Either when I am at home on the couch watching the most strangest things, or when I am out with my friends, having the time of our lives. ( Gemini )

What would you do if you weren’t afraid?

End up in jail, haha.. kidding. I would be on top of my game.

What do you do for growth?

I try to be alone, or with loved ones. The uplifting of one’s soul, THAT is true growth.

When was the last time you did something that challenged you and what was it?

When I deciding to partner up with Chrisla Essentials for my #WKBeardOil, it caused a lot of controversy because of obvious reasons but I didn’t let that get to me. I have a tendency of doing anything I put my mind to.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would that be and why?

I would stay right here, I want to be part of the Namibian growth. We have seen great strides taken by our Country.  I want to live the experience of making an impact that resonates in the Namibian entertainment industry.

What’s your favorite book/movie of all time and why did it speak to you so much?

I am such an emotional mess, I literally relate to ANYTHING!!!

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Obtaining my degree, I never EVER thought I would pull through.

What would enough look like to you?

I’ll let you know when I get there.

How do you wish to be remembered?

As me …
