Linda Ch­ester, Busi­ness-minded Model

Sunday Observer - - SCENE -

Hav­ing been raised by his mother and step fa­ther, due to his fa­ther work­ing away from home. Linda Ch­ester cred­its his mother for all the sup­port and love he has been get­ting from his large fam­ily as he has 21 sib­lings.

“I was raised and groomed by my mother and my step fa­ther who made me the man that I am to­day, this hap­pened while my bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther was away for work. I have one younger sib­ling on my mother’s side whom I have de­vel­oped a good re­la­tion­ship with over the years. I also have about 21 sib­lings on my fa­ther’s side which I know some of you find it hard to be­lieve but it’s the hon­est truth that my fa­ther was pretty busy,” says Linda chuck­ling.

Ed­u­ca­tion is im­por­tant re­gard­less of what­ever ca­reer path or tal­ent one has. It en­ables one to make bet­ter in­formed de­ci­sions hence Linda is in full sup­port of it. He com­pleted his high school last year at Ng­wane Park High School. Cur­rently he is a ter­tiary stu­dent at PC Train­ing and Busi­ness Col­lege, study­ing Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion. “I love busi­ness as such I was one of the best Busi­ness Stud­ies pupils in High School. And last but not least, I am a model and a Mar­ket­ing Man­ager of a mod­el­ling agency called PULSE MODELS SWAZI­LAND which hap­pens to be the best agency in Swazi­land be­cause it of­fers good ser­vices and has beau­ti­ful qual­i­fied models.” Pulse Agency

“Well I was dis­cov­ered by my younger sis­ter, Kiki Ch­ester who is also a Model Man­ager for PULSE. So it hap­pened that one Satur­day this year she called me and in­vited me to a photo-shoot hosted by Pulse Models Swazi­land which was held at Madonsa Guest House. So dur­ing the shoot the Di­rec­tor of the agency Khanyak­wezwe Stix Mamba, saw some­thing in me in a way that he ac­tu­ally sug­gested I par­take in that shoot which was my first photo- shoot ever as a model. So I did that and gave it my best, two weeks later I was signed at Pulse Models Swazi­land,” he says. Linda was a part of the SADAC FASH­ION SHOW 2017 which was hosted in Septem­ber. It was his first show and nat­u­rally he was lit­tle ner­vous es­pe­cially on the first day.

Lo­cal Brands

It is al­ways in­spir­ing to see models re­spect­ing and pro­mot­ing lo­cal brands. Linda is also one model who has taken a lik­ing to not just pro­mot­ing lo­cal brands for money but be­cause he gen­uinely con­sid­ers them good. YOUNIQUE WEAR, is one of those brands that Linda loves and he says dur­ing one of t heir shoots was the highl i g ht f or hi m be­cause he got the op­por­tu­nity to be fea-

“I learnt a lot from this young man es­pe­cially how to make a nd main­tain a good pro­file, which is one of the good things about mod­el­ing, you get to meet new a nd in­ter­est­ing peo­ple. One thing about me that you should know is that I never dress to im­press un­less it ben­e­fits me.I am a clas­sic kind of per­son.
