Naddya in today’s cover feature, what is 3 moments that stood out the most for you of the photo shoot with Darren Duke Photography, please share? 

Since the first day I met Darren, I always felt very comfortable and creative with him! We both love nature, which is my personal preference of environment to do photo shoots. 

“I feel the most natural and happy when I shoot in nature or at the beach.” 

The photos that we are sharing with you all, are very special to me. Myself and Darren wanted to capture the simplicity and the beauty of nature with myself in it and so we pitched the photos to Arne for submission for MOLLMAGSA OCTOBER 2020 feature. 

3 MOMENTS that stood out are the following… 

  • It was a chilly cold early morning, and freezing!
  • Hence the reason I wore my big jumper, and it worked so well!
  • We never tried that idea before, and the end result was amazing and so natural.

What is it that’s so captivating about our brand and image of MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA that you wanted to be featured with us, describe in your own words? 

MODEL NADDYA – I love that MOLLMAG South Africa has such a diverse selection of women on the covers. Everyone is unique in their own way and beautiful. I strongly believe that you should be proud of who you are and embrace it. 

DARREN DUKE PHOTOGRAPHY – The style and grace in how the models portray themselves on the covers and features of MOLLMAGSA so sophisticated and beautiful. 


FAVORITE WAY TO RELAX AFTER A LONG DAY? – Is to take a nice walk in Cremorne Point. It’s just around the corner of where I live. The scenery is breathtaking, and it gives me “NEW REFRESHING OUTLOOK ON LIFE EVERY TIME.” 

HOBBIES OTHER THAN MODELING? – Is travelling! I have so many more countries I would like to visit, and create memories, I am also a big foodie, and love to try different dishes and new restaurants. 

AS YOU LIVE IN AUSTRALIA NADDYA WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS THE BEST WAY TO DESCRIBE YOUR COUNTRY AKA AUSTRALIA TO SOMEONE? – Australia is a country full of opportunities and it’s multicultural. Beautiful nature and a country full of possibilities. I found so much happiness here, and I am proud to be a citizen. 

FAVORITE NETFLIX MOVIE OR TV SHOW AT THE MOMENT TO WATCH OR BINGE ON? – I am always out and about, and I don’t always watch Netflix. But I am a big fan of documentaries and thriller/horror movies, Especially for this OCTOBER MONTH. 

DREAM VACATION SPOT WHERE WOULD THAT BE FOR YOU IN THE WORLD AND WHY? – Bora Bora, The environment, nature and the crystal water! I would be in heaven! I have traveled a lot in my life, and this place would be a dream come true for me. 

STAR SIGN / BIRTH MONTH? – Scorpio in the month of NOVEMBER 

IN YOUR OWN WORDS WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO DESCRIBE THE WORLD WE LIVE IN TODAY? – I think that we all have a responsibility to make the world a better place to live in, with our own everyday actions. 

Mother Earth has given us so many things to be grateful for. We all need to appreciate life and focus on the positive things in our lives. “Start each day with gratitude, and happiness will follow!” 

IF NOT MODELING WHAT WOULD BE YOUR DREAM JOB ONE DAY IN THE FUTURE? – To continue to work with people and bring joy into their life’s. My vision is to make people feel good. 

I love being around people with different backgrounds and experiences. If I can combine traveling and being surrounded with people, then I am the happiest. Plus, I would love to lead people, as I love my leadership role that I’ve been doing for over 15 years. 

WHO INSPIRES YOU IN LIFE AND WHY? – Both my parents I really look up to my mum and dad, a lot as I learn a lot from them each day.  

My dad always told me to say what I think and feel and never be afraid to speak my mind. My mum raised me to be independent, and to be caring and loving to other people. 

MOST VALAUBLE LESSON LEARNED THUS FAR WHAT WOULD THAT BE FOR YOU NADDYA? – Always follow your own intuition and never stop being you! Be proud of who you are, and you can achieve anything! 

WHAT MESSAGE DO YOU WANT TO SHARE WITH YOUR FAMILY FRIENDS AND FANS OUT THERE TODAY?… AS THE STAGE AND SPOTLIGHT IS YOURS RIGHT NOW – Never give up your dreams. You create your own luck and you are unique. Start each day with gratitude and be kind. The biggest gift in life, is the gift of giving.
