Let’s find out more about Chante today as she’s interviewed by our CEO Arne Schreuder
Warm welcome to you Chante how does it feel knowing your one of our MOLLMAGSA modeling features today for the month of November 2020?
Hi Arne. Thank you very much for the feature. I am thankful and proud to be selected.
Please introduce yourself to us who you are and where you reside from Chante, and what makes you being you?
I am full-time student at the North West University (PUKKE) in my second year of studies and I live in a complex in Potchefstroom with my brother who also studies at NWU and my cat Pigu.
My parents stay in Northcliff, Johannesburg. My mom is also my agent as she helps organizes all my shoots and everything related to my modeling career.
I am actually a very laid-back person who enjoys the simpler things in life like spending time with family and friends and the outdoors.
“Having said that I am fiercely selective of who I allow close to me so I have a small group of very special people in my life and, Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would become a recognized model.”
Modeling and Health / Beauty, where and when did the passion and journey start for you Cante?
I honestly never thought that I would become a model. It started with a call for a model to do a specific high fashion makeup shoot by a well-known South African photographer who posted on a Facebook group in the area where my parents live.
My mom noticed that the facial shape that was needed matched mine and asked if I would be interested and that was the beginning for me.
What is it about our brand aka MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA that intrigued you to be featured with us today?
Every model wants to be featured in and on magazine covers and…
MOLLMAGSA is definitely one of those magazines that every model dream of being featured in.
Tell us where did this photo shoot take place in SOUTH AFRICA?
The photo shoot was done on the beach and at a friend’s house in the stunning Overberg area called Pringle Bay WESTERN CAPE. It’s a sleepy little town and one of my happy places.
Give 3 factors in what made this photo shoot so special and stand out for you as a model Chante?
- The first would definitely be the opportunity to work with the fantastic and well-known photographer Derek Whitton who agreed to shoot this style with me. I recently decided to change my modeling style to do more fashion and commercial work.
- Secondly with this year being plagued with issues like Covid-19 and the national lock down I have had very few opportunities to showcase as ambassador and provide some opportunities to feature for my sponsors namely Tasha Makeover for my makeup needs, Eclipz Hair and Beauty who keeps my hair in tiptop shape, Brow Architect SA for my beauty needs and my awesome couture sponsor Everson from Everdesigns.
- Lastly it was an opportunity to do something I love doing at a place which is very special to me while I had my cousin join me on the photo shoot and both my maternal and paternal grandmothers attended the shoot as well. What more can a girl ask for.
Chante if you could describe yourself in 3 powerful words what would it be?
“Empathetic, Loyal and Discerning.”
Complete the following sentence in your own words, our future and society should be run by strong women…
Who will lift and build others, who will love and be loved, Women who live bravely, both tender and fierce, Women of indomitable will!

(It’s truly an eye-opening movie and very captivating story line, which a father devoted to raising his six kids with a rigorous physical and intellectual education is forced to leave his paradise and enter the world, challenging his idea of what it means to be a parent.)
FAVORITE FOOD DISH YOU ENJOY TO EAT OR MAKE YOURSELF? – My grandma’s typical Sunday cooked food. We call it “huiskos” and also cheese sauce chips with bacon pieces on it… Now I’m hungry.
MOST IMPORTANT LIFE LESSON LEARNED THUS FAR? – Don’t allow anybody other than yourself determine your own worth.
SUMMER SEASON IS HERE WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE SUMMER BEACH FASHION TREND AT THE MOMENT? – Definitely forgoing the formal skirt or pants for the tied sarong.
WE FOLLOW AND WORK HARD TOWARDS OUR DREAMS, SHARE WITH US YOUR ULTIMATE DREAM OR GOAL IN LIFE CHANTE? – It is my dream to open my own school that will focus on teaching life skills and real-life work skills. These schools already exit in countries like Finland.
“I don’t believe one school system is right for every child and that children should be taught the skills they would need for their chosen careers or according to their individual needs and abilities.”
