It's a Thing: Overcoming Adversity


Elsubie Verlinden is a name you will know if you have ever worked in the modelling industry.

Both locally and abroad, Elsubie has cemented herself as an industry leader and thought changer in both the modelling and acting worlds across the world.

With agencies in both South Africa and the United States, Elsubie is the agent that everyone wants. But, where does she come from? What is the backstory to a woman so driven and successful, but, who still has crystals on her desk and tales time off to sing happy birthday to her kids? I sat with her for over an hour, listening to her incredible and almost unable;eiveable story of overcoming adversity, from all sides, to becoming the woman she always knew she would be. But, as in all fairy tales, the twists and turns don’t stop after the big wedding, sometimes, you have to lose it all, to rediscover who you are.
