Nyasha: Sweet At Sixteen, Elegant At Heart

What does it take to be a successful career person at a very young stage in life?

Young Zimbabwean model Nyasha Matonhodze surely has a clue.

Matonhodze is only sixteen (born on July 31, 1995) but she is already making waves in a trade made only for the brave and spirited at heart. She is being touted as the “next big thing” to take on the world of modeling.

This year, in a list of Africa’s top 20 models put together by Forbes Africa, she came first beating off stiff competition from other modeling big shots like Kinee Diouf, Ataui Deng, Ajak Deng, Grace Bol, Nana Keita, Marika Le Roux, Candice Swanepoel and Aminata Niara.

To qualify for the top 20, a model had to be born in Africa, and must have done a lot of work during winter/Fall 2011 and Summer Spring 2012. This included advertising campaigns, magazine covers, fashion shows and editorials.

Making Forbes top 20 list was part of a regular slideshow of successes that she continues to embrace everyday. It is surprising how she does it but to think that at her age she’s already shot a high-level advertising campaign directed by renowned fashion photographer Steven Meisel and styled by Karl Templer for fashion mogul Louis Vuitton, makes her story one of a kind.

    l call this a child abuse, if a child that is not up to eighteen years who should be in the school learning engage in a fame instead, I really wonder if she become a model what message will she pass to others especially the younger ones.
