Jenelle – day 1


well this is jenelle :-) i have seen nisha on twitter and i had a look at her twitter profile and i was amazed to see her bio, so i took a look at her blog here. i was speechless to see someone like her with CP have such confident about herself and having lot of followers, I admired her! so she asked me if i can be her guest here, while she is on holiday, and  i said yes :-).

Let me share a little about me. I also have a disability called Hearing impairement (more likely the word as deaf, hard of hearing). I am Determined, intelligent and confident – these are all attributes that make me an inspiration to those around me. Despite the fact that I was diagnosed with hearing loss, this has not stopped me from successfully becoming one of South Africa’s most inspiring up and coming models. In the last two years I has been a finalist in the Miss Deaf South Africa pageant, was awarded the ‘Fresh Look’ title at Miss India South Africa KZN 2010 contest, and recently made the Top 5 and ‘Miss photogenic’ for the Xtreme Models Search competition in February 2011. “I have always believed that modelling is a stepping stone to something greater for me. I want to motivate those who are both ably hearing and hearing impaired,” Achieving my goals is definitely not a foreign concept. I was the first hearing impaired person in my school to pass my Matric with a merit and distinctions, thus enabling me to attend a mainstream college where I passed a national diploma in Business Management. It was this need to inspire and to show people that being hearing impaired is merely an obstacle that led me to becoming LifeSound’s newest ambassador and ambassador for House Of Tai Tei Lija. I am also in FHM top 100 2012 model and the first hearing impaired in FHM.  I am hoping i get to top 20 with your help by visiting this link and vote for me online please :).  click on it and go to bio and see below called please vote for me red button. keep clicking on it.  only five days left to vote.  If you want me to be an inspiration to the Deaf Community, then vote for me :-).  Love you all.

Tomorrow I am taking part for Miss Deaf KZN 2011 , wish me luck that i hope i come home with a crown! hehe ;)
