Born and Bred in Glen Norah, Harare Zimbabwe, Lyn Lukas is an 18 year old Model who is contesting for the Elite Super Model 2020. She recently finished her O Levels and besides modeling Lyn is also an aspiring author and fashion designer. In her own words she says “I love to be myself and trying to bring the best out of me that can make people happy because I find my happiness in others”
Lifestyle Magazine managed to had a sit with Lyn and she shared more light about herself and about the Elite Super Model 2020 Competition that it going on.
So firstly tell us why and when did you decide to start modeling?
Modelling is something that makes me happy and considering my background I would like people to know that nothing is really impossible if you just tell yourself that you can do it and if you only believe in yourself rather than looking down upon yourself. I want to inspire someone and to let girls know that marriage is not an achievement and also that age is not a limitation, modelling is something that I love and I’m really passionate about it. Professionally I started modelling last year November and I did course with Zuri Modelling Agency.
So currently you signed to any agency?
Yes I am with Zuri Modelling agency
So you have just over a year in the Modelling industry, what are the challenges you are facing and what keeps you going despite the challenges?
The biggest challenge for me is the issue of finances. Looking at the economic situation in our country, it’s a bit tough for everyone to have money and transport is getting expensive each day. But my passion for modelling and my desire let others not to give is keeping me going.
Explain to us what Elite Super Model 2020 is also about?
Elite Super is not a pageant but an all-encompassing program that seeks to equip models with all the different facets of the business side and demands of the industry. As opposed to the traditional sit-and-wait till the client makes a casting call, the program empowers us with the necessary knowledge and tools to take a proactive stance and pursue the clients. We get groomed, molded and packaged into social influencers as well as brands that have undeniable commercial value and longevity.
Well said there! So tell us more about tomorrow’s event

What are your words of advice to other aspiring models before we finish off?
I would like to advice those who aspiring to be models that never look down upon yourself and don’t let what people say or what they think affect you and your dream, believe in yourself
