Clicks is proud to announce their 2017 Clicks Cover Model search winner as Penelope Motshwene. Being chosen as the official winner out of over 4000 entries is a dream come true for the KwaNdebele born beauty.
When Motshwene was informed that she had won the competition she broke down into tears and said, “I am grateful that my start into the modelling world is with Clicks; I am excited and honoured to be associated with such an amazing brand.”
Motshwene who currently resides Montana, Pretoria was born into a family of four, she was the first born and only girl followed by three brothers. Passionate about people, she has an Honours Degree in Social Work from the University of Pretoria and is currently studying while working part time at a local college.
When asked what she hopes to achieve from winning the competition, Motshwene said, “I hope to use this platform to say to young people, let your life echo all that you desire, go at it, and don’t give up. Show up like the lady you want to be, show up like a model that's walked the runway of Victoria Secret, show up the best way you know how and God will show off on your behalf."
Says Shavina Padayachee-Loubser, Head Agent of D&A Model Management: “We were looking for a woman who has a great look, has confidence, stands out from the crowd, carries themselves professionally and above all is UNIQUE. It was important that our winner is a great speaker as well as a witty conversationalist. She should also have good skin, a beautiful smile, healthy fit body and a sparkle in her eyes. The judging was tough this year, we met some truly special women.”
D&A Model Management is incredibly excited to have signed Motshwene. “She exudes all the characteristics of an exceptional model in the making: grace, natural beauty and a great sense of style. We look forward to working with her in the years ahead.”
