ladies, ladies, ladies! the big announcement is here!
MOVEPRETTY is pleased to announce our #MOVEPRETTYambassador2018 ladies.
it was a long and difficult decision for our judging panel to choose the perfect women that would promote and inspire others to embrace the #prettymovement.
please put your pretty hands together for our ambassadors of 2018.
first up is the stunning and inspirational anruné weyers. she is a passionate, energetic paralympic athlete and a teacher at i-learn development centre. “i strive to embrace each moment that is given.”
her favourite quote is, “being normal is overrated” - bethany hamilton.
“i am different and i am embracing that. i am given opportunities and i take them with heart and ‘one big hand’”.
next up, we have the radiant alise ferreira. she is originally from a farming community in the eastern cape. she grew up loving and living outdoors, but she moved to the mother city about 5 years ago for her studies. “i live a well-balanced lifestyle, maintaining a healthy mental and physical well-being whilst attending to my studies and setting aside quality with family and friends. i am an avid traveller, foodie and adventure seeker.”
introducing next, the fierce veronica markus. she is originally from upington, but has lived in pretoria since 2011. she is a rifleman in the sandf (south african national defence force). being in the force has taught her a lot about herself – she is strong mentally and physically. she loves being active and busy. after joining the military she trained more and focused more on her fitness.
“i started realizing how amazing the human body is and what is amazing to me, how i can achieve anything i set my mind on.”
one of her favourite quotes are; “life has no remote. get up and change it yourself.”
the vibrant and creative stephanie de jager, is up next. she is a full time fashion and wedding photographer based in cape town. she has a passion for photography, fashion, wildlife, the outdoors and empowering others to follow their dreams and work hard to make it a reality. she has been active all her life until she started working as an auditing and accounting clerk. she believed that she was too busy to train and made unhealthy choices, because there was no time to prepare a healthy meal. “one of my first ‘choosing health’ decisions was to resign as an auditing clerk and I began focusing on my love and passion – photography.” she still has a very busy schedule, but makes time to eat healthy and to exercise. she is an advocate for women to eat healthy and to exercise and to be overall happy and healthy.

she is confident and comfortable with herself. she enjoys writing, beach walks and home cooking with her son. “i’m all about empowering women as i have realized how the future is really female and it’s up to each woman to uplift and develop those that come after them.
