Who is Wesley?
I see myself as down-to-earth, easy-going and just your regular 19-year-old boy. I spend loads of time with friends and family and I love meeting new people. It’s not always fun and games though, because I’m studying medicine… So yes, I’m a bit of a nerd too. I’m proudly South African.

If I wasn’t a model, I would just be a student with more time on my hands. 

Did becoming a model change your life in any way?

It really has! I am much more confident than I was before and it has opened so many doors for me. I’ve met so many great and interesting people and experienced things that would have never been possible without it.
