Local 11-year-old model wins a trip on a luxury cruise

She will also stand a chance to win a trip to New York.

At 1.69m tall it is no wonder she is mistaken for a teenager.

This towering pre-teen, however, is just 11 years old.

Lebo Cembi, an aspiring model from Figures Models Boksburg, snatched the crown in her nine- to 12-year-olds division at the Figures International Model of the year competition, which recently took place at the Roodepoort Theatre.

A total of 112 contestants representing 15 Figures Models franchises from all over the country contested.

She won an all-expenses-paid luxury cruise in March next year to Pemba, which is a beautiful island in Mozambique, for the second year running.

Cembi said: “I am happy to win again and my mother is ecstatic to be going on an all-paid holiday again.”

Owner of Figures Models Boksburg Sandra Theron-Swanepoel said Lebo is a determined model with a lot of potential.

“She has gained a lot of self-confidence and I am truly proud to see her grow and to have achieved what she has at such a young age.”

On board of the luxury cruise, Cembi will compete in seven different competitions as well as attend workshops and seminars, where she will have an opportunity to meet with agents from various countries.
