SIMA Bucwa has a passion for fashion!

The 11-year-old from KwaNobuhle kasi in Uitenhage not only has a taste for fashion, she also loves being on stage!

She is the youngest member of the TMI Models agency, whose models are aged between 11 and 31.

Sima, a grade 6 pupil at Riebeek College Girls’ High School, said her favourite subject is maths.

“I also love swimming and attending church. I grew up entering beauty pageants at school and I was crowned Miss Little KwaNobuhle at the age of five.”

Her mum Pumla (35) and her dad Simphiwe Bucwa (40) are supportive of their daughter.

Pumla said: “We wanted her to become a pharmacist, but Sima is interested in modelling.

“She spends most of her time helping
other children with maths because it’s her favourite subject.”

“We support and guide her in everything she does.”

Sima specialises in catalogue shoots.

She strikes stunning poses that can grace the pages of any top fashion magazine.

Tinkler Banzi, her manager, said Sima is a fast learner. “If companies are looking for a model to use for advertisements, Sima is the best.”

He said being a model is not about how your face looks, but about having a beautiful body. “If any garment fits you, well then, you are on top of your game.”
