Candice is sweet but also worldly and sophisticated for someone so young, south africa is remote- its far to travel to the fashion capitals of the world. Candice has spent time reading and learning, and its given her an intellectual edge. She's always an absolute delight to be around. Her lilting accent is so pleasant, it sounds like she's speaking with a smile.

Personal life

Despite the high-profile life I lead, I’m still happiest and most comfortable hiding away on a beach with a good pair of sunglasses, soft sand and some Reggae music. I love exploring exercise and nutrition, finding new ways to keep my body in top shape.

I can’t express enough thanks to the fans who have supported me over the years. Your daily encouragement and care is what keeps my spirits up and puts a smile on my face.
