A YOUNG Sunwich Port teenager Nelisa Khwela (19) has been wearing her Face of Ultimate Events crown proudly since January.

Khwela and 20 others were chosen to represent Stacey Upfold’s events company, Ultimate Events, at charity fund-raisers and other events dealing with non-profit and non-government organisations.

“I have been modelling for nine years in local pageants. I am a determined, ambitious and patient person. I like to see each task I start to completion and welcome constructive criticism in order to improve,” she said.

She said being a face of Ultimate Events has been beneficial as she has gained experience in the events and modelling industry.

“It entails being a good representative of the business through promoting events, making appearances as well as helping out at events to ensure that everything runs smoothly,” she said.

Khwela said her biggest aspiration is to graduate with a Master of Business Administration degree from an Ivy League institution.

“I also aspire to help and encourage women who are oppressed and to become a United Nations goodwill ambassador. In my spare time I enjoy reading and writing and hope to have my work published in the future,” she added.
