Hello! Thank you for visiting ;-)
Psychology graduate, business woman, Life coach, Mother to a very busy toddler, wife, model, actress, brand ambassador…there are few things Karolina Sky has set to her mind to in the past 10 years that she hasn’t achieved, but with her drop-dead gorgeous good looks and a burning ambition to do even more, not even the sky’s the limit for this determined young go-getter.
Shaking up the modeling world
Born in Poland and raised in South Africa, the stunning Karolina shot to fame in 2002 when she was placed fifth in The official Miss South Africa Pageant and won the coveted title of Miss Veet Legs South Africa. The latter saw her representing the brand in various capacities, including starring exclusively in a year-long Veet media campaign.
She went on to become the face of Revlon's Divine Perfume in an international advertising campaign, SA's official Lara Croft Model, The face of USA's Sharks energy drink,The legs of Egdars Kelso stockings, The Face of Skyla Jewelry and participating all the while in a number of runway fashion shows.
She has also been the "Beauty" in all the "beauty & the beast" BIC Soleil Razor commercials alongside SA Rugby Player Tendai " The Beast" Mtawarira.
Breaking into broadcasting
In between all of this, Karolina completed her BA in communications with distinctions in communications, journalism and psychology, adding these skills to her previously completed training in TV presenting, undertaken with Nadia Bilchik, and acting and TV presenting, undertaken with Brumhilda van Rensburg.
During the same period she began flexing her acting muscle, with appearances in a number of music videos including ‘Tornado’ by Mandoza, ‘Runaway’ by Mark Beiling, ‘Pretty Thing’ by Evolver and ‘Magdalena’ by Adam Davis to mention a few. Most recently, this also included the video for ‘Living Next Door to Alice’ by Nicholis Louw and Heinz Winkler.
All this combined with her long-term aspiration to move into TV and film, perfectly positioned Karolina to take up numerous on-screen roles over the years. These included a Sex In The City promotion on Go TV, presenting TV inserts and more recently, starring in Andre Scholtz’s feature film, Rainbow Skellums, which marked her official acting debut.
Karolina the entrepreneur
This varied entertainment industry experience, including valuable time spent honing her interviewing and public speaking skills, provided Karolina with a solid base to work from when establishing her own company, Runway Projects, which specializes in Fashion and cosmetics marketing, events and promotions management. Boasting an impressive clients list for which she’s successfully handles projects.
In addition, her strong modeling background and love for gym along side her Certificates in Excercise Science and Group Fitness Training engendered her passion for health, fitness and well being. It’s in this area that Karolina is making her next business foray – as an ambassador, role model and spokesperson for renowned brands and products in this sector.
She’s ideally placed to take up any of these positions given her sterling reputation in the industry, 150% dedicated work ethic, inherent knowledge of these specific areas and inspiring, motivating outlook on life as well as her studied knowledge in the field of Psychology.
A big heart
Although Karolina comes from a world of glitz and glam, and her brands will be based on merging the concepts of feeling and looking good, her down to earth nature ensures she does her bit for her community.
To this end, and as a huge animal lover, Karolina is a staunch supporter of the NSPCA and FreeMe wildlife rehabilitation centre. She has also put her weight behind the new anti-abuse campaign, Abuse is Abuse, which combines the efforts of Sappi, Childline and the NSPCA to raise awareness of the fact that all forms of abuse are interlinked.
With her sparkling personality, positive attitude, and relentless determination to achieve her goals, Karolina Sky is aiming high. And if her past success is anything to go by, nothing’s going to stop her.
