  1. Horentia Cornelissen – Journey to my Runway

A big thank you to new author Horentia for coming in store this week and signing copies of her book.

From her earliest memories, Horentia wanted to be a model. Journey to my Runway, follows her story as she shares her motivations, inspirations and her past from her modelling debut at the age of eight, through to her modelling supercars three decades later.


From her humble beginnings in a small town in the Western Cape to her very latest adventure, the Journey to her Runway to the United States.


Horentia started modelling at the age of eight. Her experiences of participating in competitions and travelling abroad have helped her to become a sportscar and fashion model. She has worked with several modelling agencies and taken part in many photoshoots and now, thirty years later, she has written her inspirational memoir for the world to see where she came from and where she is heading to. Her goal is to inspire those who have a dream to make a difference, to live life with a purpose and to inspire that anything can be achieved if you have a vision and work for it.

Journey to my Runway is available on Amazon, Takealot and the Beyond The Vale bookshop priced at R250.
