Charissa: Well, first I’m afrikaans and from Bloemfontein. I’ve finally turned 21 years old. I’m living in the beautiful city Cape Town and happily INLOVE with model/boyfriend Marcel Snyman.
GoTrendSA: So, you’re currently signed with a few modeling agencies but especially so with the prestigious Next Models Agency, how did you get into modeling, and how has your experience been so far?
Charissa: In my final year of high school, My dad actually suggested it. I found ICE (my mother agency) and this has been the most incredible journey I’ve ever been on. The job is so satisfying in so many ways. I can be who ever I want to be.
GoTrendSA: What advice would you give to girls wanting to get into the modeling scene
Charissa: Be yourself, but know that it won’t be easy. It’s hard work and your going to be rejected a hundred times, but never give up. If you work hard and you become the “best-self” you can be…well then I think anything is possible.
GoTrendSA: We’re SO obsessed with you and Marcel being a powerhouse couple! How did you two meet?
Charissa: Oh my goodness… (blushes) We met at a party last year. I remember it like it was yesterday. He was by far the most gorgeous man I’ve ever Laid eyes on and needless to say, I tried my luck, bought him a beer…and the rest is history.
GoTrendSA: Charissa, when you’re not busy working where do you like to hang out in Cape Town?
Charissa: My absolute favourite places are: Nü, Bootlegger, Beluga and Slug and Lettuce. (All in Cape Town!)
GoTrendSA: Tell us about your fashion sense, what is a days outfit in the life of Charissa
Charissa: If it’s not black, I won’t wear it.
GoTrendSA: Being in the public eye is hard no doubt, what do you do to keep yourself feeling and looking so good?
Charissa: I have and always will be obsessed with exercise. The promenade in Seapoint has become Marcel and my playground. 80% of being healthy starts with food, so I always try to be as healthy as possible with what I feed my body.
GoTrendSA: Where do you want to see yourself in five years time?
Charissa: I have no idea!
