Danika grew up on a small holding in South Africa, spending her early years horse-riding and feeding farm animals. She went on to success in a variety of sports - gymnastics, athletics, as well as netball, where she was scouted at the age of 15.
Her decision to model full time after school was an easy one – the industry proved a great match with her love for the fashion industry and travel, being able to immerse herself in other cultures. Success came early, and she found herself bouncing between continents once clients discovered her ability to sell.
Danika’s limited down time back home is spent doing yoga, running, indoor rock climbing and stand up paddle boarding. She feels strongly about making a difference in the world, and supports FeedSA and Angels’ Care Centre.
