This is aspiring model, Lwandile Ndita's story in her own words......


My name is Lwandile Ndita. I am 21 years old and I was born in Garden City. I once lived in Witpoortjie but now I reside in Dobsonville. I started nursery school at Disney Land in Wipoortjie, graduated and proceeded to Princess Primary School in Witpoortjie. I progressed to Princess High School where I matriculated in 2014. During my years of high school, I was fortunate enough to be selected to attend one of the best programs in Mathematics and Sciences, being, "PROMATHS Kutlwanong Investec" at Makhoarane Primary School in Dobsonville. I attended the Promaths program for a period of 3 years, from grade 10 until 12. After I matriculated, I furthered my studies in studying Financial Accounting, which is what I'm currently studying at University of Johannesburg(UJ).

I've been playing netball since the age of 8, took swimming lessons in nursery school and participated in athletics in Primary school. I was an Altar server at St Angela's Catholic church in Dobsonville for 4 years and I'm currently in the church choir. I'm a friendly soul that's very outrageous and loves being adventurous.


I started my modelling career about 2 years ago. I chose modeling because I was encouraged by many to take my modeling a step further because I just loved taking pictures, doing photo shoots and also being involved in anything that's got to do with modeling. I also believe that modeling is a great platform to build my self-confidence because like everyone out there I am at times doubtful of my own abilities and strengths. Modelling has and still continues to do wonders for my confidence so I am happy that I decided to pursue it.


I trust and believe that I have the qualities of being a good model because of my character as a person and my looks are just a mere bonus. I also trust that I'm capable of helping others to stand up for themselves and pursue their goals instead of being afraid of being themselves and follow their dreams and goals.


I've done a couple of photo shoots, 2 pageants and I'm under one modelling agency. Who knew that taking pictures could lead to such greatness? Yes its small and its just the start but that just encourages me to do me and be a greater me. It motivates me to acknowledge that no minor or major weakness will block or crash me. I'm actually inspired to always be myself, to express myself in a good way, to have faith in myself. I also do not want go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it. I want to  be a better version of myself because the world worships the original.
