i AM THABANG. i AM SUMMER.
“HERE’S TO THE MOST
MEMORABLE EXPERiENCE EVER”
Imagine going to bed as an ordinary fashion lover, and waking up the next day as the face of a leading fashion store, nationwide!!! For me, it literally happened over night because throughout the competition I had flags waving for 3 other contestants, not knowing votes were actually heading in my direction.
Having been announced as the Face of LEGiT, I had a bunch of stereotypes all in my head and preconceived ideas of what it all meant. So-called beauty ideals and fitting criteria were suddenly questionable and seemed like a long stretch.
Though it took forever to sink in, when it finally did, the only question pounding in my head was: “Who am I not to be?”
Shooting with LEGiT was the most memorable experience ever; both on camera and off camera. I found myself paired up with the most courageous, selfless and of course, awesome team. I loved every bit of it; the make-up, clothing, environment, joint effort and attention.
I mean, it’s not every day that you have people styling your hair and giving you this awesome makeover, and then throwing compliments your way! It was all so overwhelmingly brilliant, I didn’t want to go home. I will forever cherish this experience, and from this day forward will carry the brand as though I have cameras and lights around me.
