Bucket Babe: Gabrielle Pollock

South Africa as a country is truly beautiful and we're lucky to have this land blessed with beautiful home grown girls as well. Take today's featured model for example, she's only 21 but already she's taken the world by storm, born in the Eastern Cape, this gorgeous young lass took a chance with a competition and from that it just sky rocketed her into the industry, she soon will be jetting off to the USA to strut her stuff there for work. She's set herself high goals but she has the right attitude to achieve them, age is on her side and we wish her all the best. She may look familiar to you as she was featured in our top 20 for the Swimsuit SA competition, voting is still open so keep on voting!

My modelling career all started when I left East London to do the Elle Fresh Face finals in Cape Town. Not only was I lucky enough to get the April cover of Elle 2011, but I signed a contract with Boss Models whom I have been working with ever since. I love living in Cape Town, and as I am an active trail runner it really is the perfect environment for me. However, modelling has given me the opportunity to travel to places such as Hong Kong, Milan and New York, and I absolutely love the adventure behind exploring a new city! I have just been placed with Wilhelmina in LA and am making the move there in May, which I am so excited for! In my spare time I like to read, box, play music and am currently studying part-time through UNISA. My ultimate dream is to be a Victoria Secret Angel and see my star in Hollywood one day. I have long way to go, but I'm always ready for a challenge. ;)
