Empowered Youth Magazine - - ON THE GO WITH: -

God­frey Mab­huti Malatji was born in the Eastern Cape and stayed in Gaut­eng’s fa­mous town­ship, Alexan­der moved to Tza­neen in Lim­popo Prov­ince where he grew up. Grow­ing up in a one big happy fam­ily, God­frey al­ways had pas­sion to par­tic­i­pate in dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties with his friends.

IN­SPI­RA­TION TO MOD­EL­LING:

“I have got con­fi­dence in my body and see­ing my peers mak­ing it big in the in­dus­try, I was in­spired to ven­ture in mod­el­ling”, he says. God­frey says that mod­els are con­sid­ered to be glam­orous and live a glam­orous life, but for him it is just a job which he lives upon.

THREE THINGS HE LOVES ABOUT BE­ING IN THE MOD­EL­LING IN­DUS­TRY:

1. Get­ting the op­por­tu­nity to get out of his com­fort zone through gigs and work­ing hard.

2. Be­ing recog­nised through his tal­ent as he meets plenty of peo­ple and make con­tact.

3. Plenty rooms for progress in the in­dus­try and get­ting to re­alise that one can also con­quer more than mod­el­ling, ex­am­ple; act­ing.

BIG­GEST HIGH­LIGHTS:

Be­ing in the in­dus­try it­self means a lot to him. “It has taught me to love, re­spect and un­der­stand­ing other peo­ple. In short, it has taught me dis­ci­pline”, he says. His big­gest high­light was when he sold a gar­ment on the ramp which is con­sid­ered to be ev­ery model’s dream and achieve­ment. “That has earned a name on the ramp ‘THE BEAST’, It re­lates with my walk and at­ti­tude”, he says.

AD­VICE TO YOUNG-SELF:

“Search all your tal­ents. Let the world know that a per­son can have many tal­ents. Try to suc­ceed not to fail, but if you fail, con­sider your­self lucky be­cause that might help you to find ex­actly what you are best at. Last but not least, al­ways hum­ble your­self as it comes with price.
