Let’s find out more as our CEO Arne Schreuder interview’s newest mollbabe model for MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA aka Carina Terclavers – “GLAM CINDERELLA STORY – EDITORIAL”
Welcome Carina, congrats on your debut feature with us for the August 2021 MOLLMAGSA edition, tell us what’s your feelings and reaction right now?
Honestly this came at an emotional and sad time as I lost my father due to COVID not long ago but I am overwhelmed as he would have been so proud of me so,
“I can’t be more honored and prouder that you have chosen me.”
Please introduce yourself to our readers fans and followers out there, where do you reside from and what is it that makes you being you Carina?
I am the mother of 2 beautiful girls, a wife and I manage 2 companies, and we live in Johannesburg SOUTH AFRICA. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia (chronic pain syndrome) and struggle daily due to the symptoms of this syndrome. These are only a few things that inspire me and push me to try and inspire those around me.
Helping the less fortunate is a huge passion of mine and I love giving back as often as I can and I hope I am able to inspire more people to do so. I was bullied from a young age at school and was in a physically abusive relationship,
which had left me questioning myself as well as my worth. It took 13 years for me to work through the trauma and realize that I am no longer a victim, but a survivor and that I do fit right IN,
“I fit into the version of the person I want to be in life.”
Where and how did the love for modeling all start for you Carina, give us a sneak peek into that journey?
I was always the odd one out, the ugly duckling if you can call it that, and like I stated after being in an abusive relationship I had to get back up and realize that it is ok to love who I am and the life I have been given and,
“I got up one day and got in front of the camera and fell in love with it, to show others that it is ok to be OK with the person you are in life and the life you have been given.”
Today’s feature is all about that “GLAM CINDERELLA STORY LOOK”, tell us in your opinion what makes this look of yours today stand out and what would be your message to inspire other women out there?
From ugly duckling to Cinderella at the ball. Loving your body and taking care of yourself can go a far way in self-improvement. It is easier said than done right, because life is not as easy as an extreme make-over show.
So, I started with, Selfcare Sundays, taking time to think about what I am going to wear the next day, waking up to train and work on my body and mental health.
“Take small steps in improving yourself, you have one life, live it!”
What would you say is your favorite fashion trend look at the moment?
My favorite trend has to be the oversized jerseys paired with a skinny jean, I am not a winter person so they are so cozy and there are amazing colors to choose from right now as well.
In your opinion if you could describe ENVOGUE IMAGE PHOTOGRAPHY in 5 words what would those 5 words be please share?
“Kind, Generous, Thoughtful, Genuine, Organized.”
The Summer Olympic Games has kicked off in Tokyo Japan, what would be your message of support to your Country and Athletes of TEAM SOUTH AFRICA?
To our athletes competing In the Olympics, you have trained to compete in one of the most difficult Olympics ever amidst this pandemic. Just do your best, because being there has already made us proud.
