Charissa combines her studies – she’s completing a Bcom Business Management Degree – with a hugely successful model career. A favourite of photographers, she consistently brings passion, energy and her wicked sense of humour to set.
Growing up on a farm in the middle of South Africa, Charissa developed a deep love for nature, riding horses, climbing trees and swimming in dams. In her school going years, she used her physical strength and toughness to earn South African colours for Netball, Hockey and Hurdles, and since then has moved into trail and marathon running, surfing, skateboarding and Bikram yoga. Downtime is spent playing guitar and jumping into Cape Town’s icy seas.
