Episode 11 - Jamie de Bruine

Jamie de Bruin is a model and sports presenter on DYR 105.1. Ok, that's underselling her by quite a large amount. Jamie is Miss Junior South Africa 2016, Miss Africa South 2017, and Miss Africa Tourism World 2017- and she didn't even want to be a model in the first place. Growing up, Jamie was a tomboy who had a promising sporting career until life threw her a major curveball that changed her trajectory forever. I'll let Jamie tell the story on the cast, but she's had to overcome quite a lot of pain, both physical and mental, to get to where she's at today. And while where she's at today is rather impressive, Jamie has BIG plans for the future, which we get a few exclusives on in this chat.

Jamie is only 21 yet she's super motivated and is constantly putting in work to develop herself further. It's pretty inspiring, especially since I was a shiftless layabout who was always caught up in the jol when I was 21.

We get into the horrors and joys of being a model and learn about the differences between pageantry and the less competitive forms of modelling. We also discuss what it's like mentally to constantly be judged on your looks and the pressures to conform to the norms of the modelling world. Plus we dig into what it's like being a sports presenter in what's seen as a typically male-dominated industry. It's an enlightening chat.
