Welcome to you Rivka congrats for being chosen and part of our MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA OCTOBER 2021 SWIMWEAR SPECIAL EDITION, how does it feel when? 

Feeling real thankful humbled and truly excited to be part of this amazing MAGAZINE and feature for OCTOBER 2021, thank you so much! I’m grateful to be a part of this and thankful to have been given this opportunity! 

Rivka, please introduce yourself to us and also tell us where you reside from? 

My full name is Rebecca Faith Beeton but I go by Rivka Emuna which is my name in Hebrew. I am 22 years old and I reside in a small town called HERMANUS in CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA, I was born and raised here, and here I’ve met my partner for life, Corné Uys.

How did you get into modeling and why do you love it so much? 

I always had a love for being in front of a camera from a young age (especially when I get to roll around in the sand at the beach, I’m such a water baby!) however joined an agency and landed my first international job at 14. The honest truth is that the modeling industry is tough and can be exceptionally tough on young girls, it just isn’t for everyone and you have to be confident enough to stand your ground in any situation, you have to have the right attitude to make it. 

The most important part of excelling in this industry is having the right guidance and the right people backing you throughout your journey! I am so grateful to know I have such a reliable agent who is like a mother to me, the beautiful Martez Saporta-Rothuysen from Martez Model Management. Martez has always looked after me as if I was her own, 

making sure I get the right jobs, always putting my wellbeing, happiness and safety first, and at the same time helping me grow into a strong-minded woman with enough confidence to walk down a runway, pose in front of any camera, communicate positively with my fellow models, photographers, stylists and the rest of the crew! 

“I love being a part of this industry not only because I get to meet amazing people and travel to amazing places, but also because I am able to help youngsters who want to start a modeling career and guide them towards the right direction!”

It’s SUMMER SEASON in SOUTH AFRICA this month of October what is it that makes Summer Season so special to you Rivka? 

Beach, beach and BEACH! The salty water and sea sand, oh it’s heaven! The fact that the weather is starting to clear up means I can LIVE outdoors again! I LOVE TO BE OUTDOORS! 

It’s time to pack the bags and head out into the wilderness for a wild adventure, whether it be sleeping in the mountain for a few nights or spending time in the Karoo with cheetah’s, we’ll do it all! #MEANDMYLIFEPARTNER 

In today’s feature and photo shoot alongside Photographer Justin Reinecke the theme is all about “SUMMER SENSATION BEACHWEAR” Rivka tell us what is the moment of this shoot that stood out the most for you? 

Definitely the laughs we had trying to keep a serious face so we could grab the perfect shots! Justin is a dear friend of mine and with our senses of humor colliding, 

“What was supposed to be an hour shoot ended up being a three-hour shoot which we thoroughly enjoyed!”

What is it about our MOLLMAGSA magazine brand and name and style, that intrigued you the most to be featured with us as a MOLLBABE model Rivka? 

It’s so different from other mainstream magazines, I don’t even know how to pin point it, but the fact that it’s run by such a lovely team that’s so welcoming and accepting already makes me feel like I’m a part of the family! 

Let’s talk skincare and how do you care for your skin, for those SUMMER SEASONS, give us a look into how you prepare or keep your skin healthy and glowing for SUMMER share with us your BEAUTY SECRETS Rivka, list them below? 

Okay GUYS and GIRLS, I cannot stress this enough – HYDRATION!!! Water is healing, cleansing and refreshing, I spent years struggling with my skin, I paid thousands of rands on fancy skincare products to try and fix it, and it just didn’t work for me. I realized it’s because I’m not focusing enough on what I put into my body and this can cause a hormonal imbalance which also plays a role in skin breakouts. 

You can try all the fancy products you want, but if you aren’t feeding your body with the right nutrients and enough water, it won’t be able to replenish itself the way it needs to. Make sure you’re getting enough greens in and make sure you’re drinking enough water every day, 

“I am no doctor, and I understand some people struggle more than others with their skin and if you are struggling, I highly recommend seeing a Dermatologist for advice as they know best!”

FUN SUMMERTIME FACTS WITH RIVKA EMUNA: 

YOU’RE FAVORITE SUMMERTIME SNACK YOU LOVE TO MAKE OR INDLUGE IN? –  I have SO many…. And they all involve BERRIES!!! My favorite is homemade popsicles (super easy to make!). Blend a bunch of frozen berries, add some honey, pour into popsicle trays, freeze them and enjoy when it’s hot outside! 

HOBBIES & INTERESTS? – Anything that gives me an adrenaline rush! Riding motorbikes, shooting guns, flying airplanes and helicopters, horse riding and so much more! 

FAVORITE VACATION DESTINATION SPOT FOR YOU IN THE WHOLE WORLD WHERE WOULD THAT BE FOR YOU AND WHY? – DIFFICULT to choose as I’ve been to so many places so far, but I would love to travel to France and Thailand again soon!! The small towns and beaches in the South of France are something out of a story book, it’s incredible!  

& Then there is Thailand that was just as fun, the water is so warm and you spend your days jet skiing, wakeboarding and diving in the clearest water! 

YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT THUS FAR IN YOUR MODELING CAREER PLEASE SHARE WITH US? – Aside from the awesome jobs I got and opportunities I chased, my proudest moment was realizing how successful my agency is and how much it has grown from where it started, 

I have been with them from day one, and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of such a great family. 

FAVORITE NETFLIX MOVIE, SERIES OR DOCUMENTARY YOU’VE WATCHED FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER? – PEAKY BLINDERS!! Everything about this series is great. The acting is phenomenal, the cinematography is out of this world, I definitely recommend it!

IF YOU COULD BE THE PRESEDENT ONE DAY IN THE FUTURE, WHAT WOULD YOU DO TO MAKING IT A BETTER LIFE FOR YOUR COUNTRY AND ITS CITEZENS? – Tata Madiba once said: “Our children are the rock on which our future will be built, our greatest asset as a nation. They will be the leaders of our country, the creators of our national wealth who care for and protect our people”. 

I would do everything in my power to make sure our children receive a strong education because with a strong foundation, an even stronger house & family will be built. 

FUNNIEST MOST EMBARACING MOMENT THAT HAPPENED WITH YOU, THAT YOU CAN LOOK BACK AND LAUGH ABOUT, TIME TO SPILL THOSE BEANS? – I am clumsy in some ways, so I have many of these! However, my most embarrassing moment in the modeling industry is probably my first casting ever. I was so nervous, there were so many people everywhere, 

I was super young, my number got called, I stood up, decided to put all the confidence I had in my little body into my walk towards the casting room, and then boom…. I bumped into the glass door…. 

All of my confidence into that glass door and a room full of people looking at me with a “how did you not see it” look on their faces. Needless to say, I never made that mistake again! 

HIDDEN TALENTS WHAT’S YOURS PLEASE SHARE? – Flying, fighting, shooting, gaming, horse riding, cooking and art I achieved my life-long dream of becoming a pilot at the age of 18. I started martial arts from a young age (kickboxing, MMA and eventually moved up to Krav Maga which is a form of Israeli Military Close Combat Fighting).  

I have been shooting guns since I was 8 years old. Handguns, rifles and shotguns. I love gaming, I used to play competitively but eventually moved away from sitting in front of my PC until 3am every morning. I’ve been horse riding for 13 years, eventually I owned my own horses, rescued horses and worked with rehabilitating injured/traumatized horses. 

I LOVE being in the kitchen cooking, baking and even making sushi, I enjoy cooking for other people! I’ve always been artistic, whenever I have some free time, I love whipping out a canvas and painting something as well. 

 

FAVORITE THING ABOUT LIFE AS WE KNOW IT TODAY, PLEASE SHARE? – Knowing that so many of us still have our whole lives ahead of us! The world is your OYSTER, and the best thing to do is live every second as if tomorrow is your last! 

FAVORITE SWIMWEAR BRAND? – Bacon Bikinis! Candice Bacon started Bacon Bikinis which is now one of the most popular bikini brands in the country! I am inspired by her, a born businesswoman and exceptional entrepreneur! 

QUOTE OF TODAY #LIFEMOTTO? – Do unto others as you want them to do unto you! I live by this quote and scripture. Always do your best to be kind, no matter what, treat others the way you want to be treated.
