We chatted to model Sanele Xaba who recently appeared in our latest Uzzi campaign about modelling, style, and more.
Q: Who do you look up to? Who do you consider an inspiration?
A: I’m inspired by hard working individuals who are go getters and have a zeal for life. I’m inspired by people who are Brazen and not ashamed. And by the people who lead instead of following and challenge the masses. I’m inspired by the Underdogs
Q: How would you describe your personal style?
A: My style icon has always been Pharrell Williams, his style is so free and it’s fresh and it’s unique, street, clean, classic and really fun
Q: Many youngsters look up to you, and how you’ve broken the stereotypes of beauty. What would you like to say to these kids who face discrimination because of their looks?
A: My advice will be to always stay true to yourself and to who you are we’re all different and that’s to be respected. Put on your game face although it hurts, don’t succumb to it. It will pass.
Q: You recently moved to Cape Town, what do you like most about the city?
A: I’ve been having a lot of fun here met awesome people, made memories, This City is also really picturesque and rich in diversity and history… I love it
Q: What are you doing at 11pm on a Friday?
A: I should abstain from answering this question. Lol…hmmm I’m with my close friends celebrating life – outside the house, enjoying being young.
