My name is Caithlynn Fourie and i am 15 years old, I grew up in Eldorado park. Growing up I was bullied a lot and i felt unhappy with myself. This continued until I joined the modeling academy called Twirl models. Modeling boosted my confidence in a short amount of time and i grew to love myself, I have great respect for my teacher and mentor Mrs Diana Robertson.
I enjoy the simple things in life like singing duets with my sister in the kitchen! When i finish my studies i want to become an interior designer while still pursuing my career in modeling. My mother is my biggest fan and she supports me in every decision i make, and loves me for me!
