MMM

<strong>MMM</strong> represents a talent pool of individuals with diverse looks and skills. We are of the belief that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and that true beauty lies within the individual and not just the packaging. Seeing our talent’s careers grow, is incredibly rewarding, but it is not always a quick or easy road for all. Because of this, we believe it’s important to guide and nurture them and help boost their confidence by assuring them that rejection does not mean not being good enough or gorgeous enough. We operate in a superficial and very competitive industry where insecurities are high and the fast pace and daily pressures give rise to bad tempers and big, sometimes unrealistic demands and expectations. With this, talent and other creatives in the industry, are often faced with negative and confidence reducing remarks and attitudes. As a team, we believe in treating others with love and respect. We believe in building and not breaking others down just to assert authority, prove a point or “guide” our talent. Sadly, the latter is very much alive in all areas of business, and when we saw Project Brave Heart being birthed, a like on Instagram led to a meeting of similar minds, vision and heart. We are honoured and excited to be a part of this amazing initiative that brings with it hope, positive change and can potentially save a life that might not feel worth living because of emotional or physical bullying. We encourage YOU to join us in partnering with Project Brave Heart and help make a difference by saying NO to bullying. <a href="http://www.martezmodelmanagement.co.za/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">www.martezmodelmanagement.co.za/</a>

Leeyah Lerato Rakgaba

Our paths crossed with Leeyah when she started promoting her son Lelo Mofokeng’s book: ‘’How I survived bullying”.  Lelo was bullied at the young age of six.  He is an amazing little man and has now written a book on his bully experience, a must read for all!  Lelo is also one of our Kid’s Ambassadors.  Leeyah is a business woman an owner of Top Notch Marketing, an events and catering company.  Leeyah is also a cake artist, a ‘’momager’’ and author.  She is also a philanthropist and works along her son’s foundation “Lelo Kingston Cares” which helps different charities and organizations.  Leeyah loves children and believes they hold the key to changing our world. She believes that if we can teach them at a young age to be good people they will grow up to be amazing human beings.  Her dream is to do away with poverty as she believes it’s the biggest contributor to social problems such as crime. Leeyah’s motto: ‘’always stand up for what you believe in, even if you stand alone’’. We nominated Leeyah as one of our first Brave Heros because of the way she handled and supported Lelo’s bullying incident and she is an example to many parents by motivating and teaching Lelo the values of life.
