FINALLY the dream of Hillcrest resident Savannah de Almeida, to represent South Africa in New York, has materialised as she was crowned the title of The Face of Just You on May 25 in Johannesburg.

De Almeida’s contract consists of a 12-month modelling contract and travel to and from New York City, while accompanied by the Just You Model and Artist Management’s director Elsubie Verlinden.

“I would just like to thank the public for voting for me. None of this would be possible without you. I would like to thank Elsubie Verlinden for being such an inspiration and for having such an incredible impact on my life.

“This competition has opened so many doors for me and I am so grateful,” said De Almeida.

She said when they announced her name as the winner she was overwhelmed with emotion. “I couldn’t hold back the tears. I am so grateful to God for all that he has blessed me with and I can’t wait to use the talents he has given me to help make a difference in his world.”

She promised the public who supported her that she will do all in her power to represent her country with love and respect.

“I look forward to travelling to New York to learn from industry professionals and to grow as an artist.

“I am excited to share my journey and all that I have learnt so far with aspiring artists,” said De Almeida.

She said the public can follow her journey through social media — Facebook: Savannah De Almeida (public figure page), Instagram: savannahdealmeida and Twitter: @savannahartist1.
