SHAUN Stander (32), the only KZN candidate for 2015 SA Bachelor competition, is appealing for support in the competition.

Stander, no stranger to the Hillcrest and Pinetown community, co-ordinates fashion shows and model competitions for Pinecrest Mall in Pinetown and trains models for promotions in the Kloof, Hillcrest and Westville areas.

Out of thousands of entries, interviews and many judging rounds Stander has been selected as one of the top four finalists.

“The role of the SA Bachelor is someone who encompasses brains, beauty, entrepreneurship and the spirit of ubuntu, a person who will also create awareness and make a difference through charity and community work.

“The two charities I proudly support are Cansa and FoodbankSA. I commit to charities that support children who went through unimaginable suffering which no child should go through.

“This includes disease, violence, neglect, hunger and abandonment.”

Stander believes he can win with the support of the province.

“We have so much to offer and I would like to put KZN on the map to show other provinces we can do this.”

He also has the task of hosting events thus creating awareness about the charities and raise funds for them.

All funds raised go directly to the charities.

“Individuals or companies that are willing to come on board and assist must contact me.

“For those willing to offer their services or sponsorships I will promote their company for a year with branding on my car and at events. I will further market their company for a year on the social networks such as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Youtube Channel, Blog, Signature and Linkedin.”

Stander has many titles and achievements under his belt.

“Iand#039;ve been the winner of 70 modelling titles, including Mr Africa, Mr Durban, Mr KZN. I co-ordinated and choreographed Mr and Miss Pinecrest for the mall in 2007. Iand#039;ve produced and co-ordinated 48 modelling shows, competitions, promotions and I choreographed a designer hair show for Hot Gossip Salon in 2005.

“I have assisted in charity events and duties for Mr Africa 2005 and 2006, assisted with co-ordination and choreography of Designer Hair and Shoe Show for I was the official judge at Mr and Miss Junior South Africa in 2007.

“I also co-ordinated models for the Sunflower Fund in 2007, assisted with getting donations of blankets for the East Coast Radio Winter Warmth Campaign 2007 and did several other initiatives, choreographs and campaigns - the list is endless.

The grand finale will take place at Silverstar Casino in Johannesburg on Saturday 7 November.
