Hi, my name is Chanté Casimiro. I’m 19 years old and live in South Africa. I love being outdoors and I am a complete nature fanatic! I love rock climbing, hiking and just in general spending time outdoors. I’m a very loving, caring person with a vibrant energy who loves to learn and experience new things.
My goals in life are first of all to become a successful photographic model and Instagram influencer. I want to travel the world and learn the traditions, languages and perspectives of people all over the world. My ultimate goal in life is to one day start my own school – where I can help shape children to be better and help them learn important lessons about life, that are not taught in every day schools, for example, to not follow like sheep – but instead lead and learn.
The reason I started modelling is to make a change in the way society looks at fellow human beings and the way they look at themselves. In my opinion people of today break themselves down and change their already owned beauty to become a society driven ideal – this is what I aim to change. My goal is to show people that it is perfectly okay to be who you are and look the way you do and feel comfortable in your own skin!
My vision in 5 years would be me traveling the world whilst doing shoots with professional photographers all over. In 5 years’ time I will have over a million followers on Instagram, that not only follow me, but that love my feed and find inspiration from it.
Quote you live by? “Only when man knows that enough is enough will truly have enough”
Where are you from and tell us one special thing about the Country you are from?
What was that decisive moment when you decided to pursue your modelling career? I responded to an ad on Facebook for a high fashion make up shoot once and I got the gig. I actually did it for fun. After this I got an invite to an open day after which I was approached by Emil Wessels first then Danny Steyn. I shot my first glamour type shoot and I was hooked. Since then it’s been exactly what I want to do in my modelling career.
I’m sure you have an extensive list of what you have achieved thus far? Care to share it? I have been busy first with matric exams and then starting university and learning to live on my own so I haven’t been able to really focus my attention on modelling but my mom is manging my career and social media platforms and as a result I have been published locally three times and internationally eight times.
What were you like in High School 🙂? Didn’t quite enjoy school I was very anti-social and preferred male friends above female friends. I was considered an ugly duckling by the girls in my school.
What is the one thing you would like to change about yourself? I am happy with my body but would like to become more toned and eat healthier but as a student that is not always possible.

Is being a Model what it’s made out to be? It certainly is hard work if you give it your all but it is also loads of fun and hopefully I will do well enough with it to escape the dreaded daily 8 to 5 slog to work for a boss and make someone else rich.
Do you gym and Diet? Now that I need to tone I have started to exercise daily. I don’t really diet as much but I try to eat green and keep to high protein low carb meals most of the time. I Love herbal life (wink)
