Margate lass is the ‘Ultimate face’

2016-02-25 06:00

PRETTY faces and big hearts - that’s what Stacey Upfold, owner of Ultimate Events, has to say about the 20 young women she has chosen to be the “face” of her company.

There is also a handsome face among them as one male was also chosen as a face in the Face of Ultimate Events competition.

“I am very excited to see how these wonderful individuals are going to work this year and look forward to it,” said Upfold.

Entrants had to enter the Face of Ultimate Events by submitting a motivational story about themselves and how they felt about being one of the faces of Ultimate Events for 2016.

They also had to include how working with charities would be beneficial to them.

The crowning was held in January at a hotel in Umtentweni.

Dominique Bruigom (19) of Margate is one of those faces. She works part time at Pretty Things at the Hibiscus Mall.

“I’m a fun-loving person and I love spending time with my friends and going to the beach,” she said.

She said she has only attended one function so far and is looking forward to more later this year.

“I’m looking forward to the upcoming events. I get to mentor and help other models, young and old. I really enjoy that,” she said.

Bruigom said she would like to become an international model, more specifically, a Victoria Secret Angel one day.

“I’ve been modelling for two years and love every minute of it. I love the fashion and the amazing people I’ve met along the way,” she added.
