Model of the month (April) Jenelle Joanne Ramsami.
My name is Jenelle Joanne Ramsami, and I was born in Durban (South Africa) but currently live in Gauteng, as a partially deaf individual, I have had to endure a lot of hurdles and challenges in life.
Where these experiences could have broken me as an individual, I have learned to rely on God and myself to become a strong and dedicated woman.
I do think my story is unique because having a partial disability; you are deemed by society as someone who is born to fail. This alone has made me more determined to succeed not just for myself but for the Deaf community as well.
Three things to describe me: Determined, Intelligent and Confident.
After being an FHM TOP 20 Model Top FHM 100 and being the first partially deaf model to compete in the FHM competition, I had received some negativity but also a whole lot of supporters who have voted for me. I do think my story is unique because there are many obstacles I faced along my journey to fame. Being partially deaf has made me strive harder because I had to have a certain amount of positiveness. In my story, I always made people understand where I came from and my passion to succeed as much for me as well my fans.
I then guest starred in a short deaf movie called, HOME – ” It’s where you belong” I played as Tessa, a vivacious and seductive character. She oozes sexiness in her earlier scenes and uses this to draw in men and particularly men with money. As the film progresses, however, her character begins to develop, from a shallow ‘gold-digger’, into her true self, who is, in fact, an ambitious woman, who is eager to make something of her life.
Hence, my motto in life is to live a purpose driven life, be an example to those who have given up hope to reach for their dreams and to leave a legacy.
Having achieved all of the above, I believe that I should not plateau but move onto new beginnings. Check my resume to see all my achievements.
My smile lights up a million stars always. I create beauty with my hands, and I radiate beauty from within. I make a fashion statement wherever I go, and I always see beauty wherever I go. Life is an experience that brings out the best in me. I triumph when my days are blue because I know my next experience will be much brighter than my worst. I am unique, beautiful, positive, strong-willed lady and above all, I welcome a challenge because that’s what makes me who I am and I am an overcomer.
