Verona, please introduce yourself to us and our readers & fans where do you reside from and what makes you being you in the journey you had till today?
I was born and raised in Durban and am currently living and working in Johannesburg. I Graduated with a B.com Accounting Degree from UNISA and an MBA from the University of Reading. Extremely ambitious and driven!
“I am a full-time corporate career woman and a proud mom.”
For today’s feature the theme and look, is all about ” Bollywood Glam East Meets West” how did this idea come about please explain in a short 3 sentences?
I love to bring in my Indian heritage into anything that I am wearing, be it a bindi, bangles, an anklet, a statement jewelry piece or a scarf. I love mixing western and Indian style to give my style the edge and it always turns heads!
“The world is changing, and we have become so liberated and inclusive. I believe we should promote that in our personal style and brand as well.”
Verona in 3 striking words how would you describe the photography from Envogue Photography?
“Unique, Flawless, Authentic.”
Where and how did the love for modeling all start for you?
I was scouted by a modelling agency while walking through a shopping Center. From there I signed up with a modelling agency and started the journey. Life happens and career and studies started taking up priority. Still pursuing the dream and my passion and flair for fashion, I continued to build up my part time modelling career as a freelance model in Johannesburg. I have been involved in mostly fashion photography over the past few years.
Growing up, I was somewhat coy and introverted. I set up a personal belief system, an ideology of principles that helped me to interpret my everyday reality. Building my confidence and managing and facing my fears, I have worked on, day by day, in becoming stronger personally and professionally through my modelling career.
What is it that’s so captivating about our brand and image of MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA that you wanted to be featured with us today Verona?
“MOLLMAGSA ensures they bring more understanding, compassion, and inclusion to our communities by connecting and enlightening people of all abilities.”
Verona… We come to notice you’re a lover of all things Tech aka that Inner Geek, what is the one thing you think that the world could not survive with tech wise and that could change our future for the better?
“Definitely automation and artificial intelligence.”
Complete the following sentence in your own words, our future and society should be run by strong women…
“who are educated as it is the most powerful weapon that one can use to change the world.”
