Full name: Tanya Wolmarans

Age: 35


I like people with kindness. In a person, kindness is what I look for. This is such an underrated trait. Compassion, kindness, humility, generosity – all these make a person so much more attractive and fascinating. I like the Karoo and Ocean. I like to braai and have a good glass of red wine.


I don’t like two faced people; I dislike people who enjoy putting others down and I hate it when someone thinks they are better than the person next to them.

Status: In a relationship (with the most amazing guy ever)

“I believe that God has a plan for each one of us, we intend to question God, but who are we to question him?”

Tanya advises individuals to always get up regardless of what happens in their life, and to trust the process even if it is not the path they wanted to take. God knows you and he knows your heart.

What are the failures that you most cherish?

I entered a model competition when I was younger and did not win. For me that was my biggest failure and at that time it felt that I was not good enough and that I was not pretty enough, but afterwards realising that I could not always win. I had to lose to get to the point where I knew that you must try 99 times to exceed only one time. So now I cherish that specific moment by knowing that every competition I enter you just have to be yourself and not worry about failing, but to stay positive and just be the best version of yourself.

 If you could go back five years, what advice would you give your younger self?

 Don’t ever judge yourself as you only need to believe in yourself before anyone else does.

 How Do You Balance Your Work and Private Lives?

In fact, life is all made up of rush… It consists of balancing, unbalancing and restoring balance. We all have different roles and different responsibilities in our lives. On this journey, we are trying to walk with many weights on our arms… Among our job, family, responsibilities at home, social circle, hobbies and moments when we seek to be alone, life becomes an effort to balance between things. Prioritise your time, Know your peaks and troughs, Plot some personal time, Always have set work hours – and stick to them.

 Where Do You See Yourself in the Next 20 Years?

In 20 years, I would like to be married to the man I love, and I would love for him to travel with me to other African countries where we can spend days with those less fortunate. Try to understand and live the culture they have for years.

What is Your Dream Project?

I would love to have my own business where I can help those in need, and I would love to help at a cancer facility.

What Projects are You Presently Working on?

I am currently putting together a gender-based violence day where anyone who wants can come and share their story. This is something very close to my heart.

If you could go back five years, what advice would you give your younger self?

Always believe that you are worthy and no matter what other people think of you, you know that God created you the way he wanted to and that is the only thing that matters.

How will you be celebrating your valentine’s day this year?

We will be celebrating Valentine’s day at home with a romantic lunch this year as COVID-19 is currently taking over everywhere. We must look after ourselves and stay safe in this crazy time.
