Stellenbosch | 31 August 2014 | Model shoot
Today I met a remarkable, young lady. Quinlene was born in Atlantis (my home-town) but now resides in Saldanha Bay.
She is a grade 11 scholar at Hopefield High and received her Boland colours in Netball in 2013 and this year she was crowned as SA champ in her category at the South African Championships in Pretoria. But don’t let her pretty face fool you coz she will seriously damage your bones if you rub her up the wrong way :) Why? She has National colours in Kickboxing and is part of an SA delegation that just came back (15 Sept) from Italy taking part in the Junior World Champs. If that is not enough, she is the pianist in their worship team at church and is also part of their youth band. In her spare time she writes poems, heads up their church’s holiday club and does some photography as well.
She dreams of becoming a catwalk model and has an audition lined up in Johannesburg shortly.
What makes Quinlene such a remarkable person is that she not only dreams but she pursues them with so much passion, it simply has to be realised!
