IM: Can you tell us a bit about when you stated modeling and
how you got into it? Nathasha: To
be honest I started modeling for the wrong reasons, I started to do modeling
just to prove a point. Growing up wasn't a walk in the park for me, I was
bullied and ironically enough I got bullied because I was unusually tall for my
age so it seemed like a joke to my schoolmates, they called me
"toll-o" but it didn't bother me, because at that point I didn't see
it as being bullied until I was called ugly, and I believed it and when you
believe it, you really become ugly, I never dressed up or put up my hair
neatly, I didn't care. Things had to change because I was growing up and
started having crushes on boys so I started fixing myself up and saw that I am actually
beautiful. I never got asked out for a date when I was in school and now tables
have turned. My Love for pageants is something that developed
unexpectedly, the meaning behind pageants is what I fell in love with.
IM: Your bio describes you as “Beauty with a purpose”, can
you elaborate? Nathasha: "Beauty with a purpose"
is something that I had picked up from watching miss world and it's one of the
pageant that I am pushing to be part of, it might seem like a pipe dream to
some but it's a dream that I believe in. My purpose as a beauty queen is making
a difference especially to young girls in my community of Kimberley, Northern
Cape. I am busy with an environmental project that involves the young people of
South Africa. My country is currently facing a big environmental crisis of
water shortage and high temperatures.
IM: You where recently in India to participate in a pageant.
What was the experience like? Nathasha: The experience was
"out of this world" India is a very beautiful place. We were staying
in New Delhi. My favorite place that we went to was the Lotus Temple House
of worship, it made me feel close to God and I even drowned an eye a little.
New Delhi has a fast lifestyle the traffic was more than what I am use to. The
women there are beautiful and everyone is deeply rooted to their culture which
I admired a lot. I would definitely go back.
IM: What do you love the most about modeling? Nathasha: Modeling gives one the
opportunity to travel meet new people and that makes you develop as a person. I
love how modeling has created a deeper meaning to save the world through
pageants. I see modeling as an art that promotes innovation.
IM: What have been the high points of your career so far? Nathasha: The high point is
definitely miss heritage international, it gave me the opportunity to work with
remarkable people from all over the world, before Miss Heritage International I
had never been out of South Africa.
IM: Describe your style, is there a piece of clothing of
accessory that you can’t do without? Nathasha: I
don't have a specific style, I play around with what is offered but I prefer
simplicity and elegance. The only accessory that I can't do without is my
makeup, perfect eyebrows are important to me.
IM: Would you ever want to get into acting? Nathasha: Acting
is one of the things that I always took interest in, I haven't done a lot of
acting projects but this year I am looking to expand as modeling goes hand in
hand with acting as well.
IM: What do you love to do the most when you have time off? Nathasha: I am one of those
"shower singers" I love singing but not in public, I do have a good
voice but when I am nervous my voice changes, it's really funny. I also love
golfing I am not a professional golfer I am far from that I just love golf.
IM: Where would you like to see yourself five years from
now? Nathasha: Owning my own modeling
agency so that I can develop young aspiring models. I am also an environmental
management student so I see myself in the environmental field, solving
