After signing with Topco Models, they decided to enter Claire into the prestigious model competition, Cosmopolitan Model of the Year 1994, to get some idea of what the industry was like.

The novice model achieved the unthinkable and went on to win the competition at the age of just 15 years old, beating professional and established models.

She became the youngest and the second black South African beauty to be featured on the cover of the local Cosmopolitan magazine.

She co-hosted ‘Live and Dangerous’ with Phat Joe, Yfm’s Breakfast Show; co-hosted Miss SA Teen 2000 and 2001 with Michael Mol; won a Duku Duku award, became the Team Leader for SABC1 presenters, and the preferred choice for a female MC during her 2 year stint as a Simunye presenter.

Returning to South Africa in 2002, she became the anchor presenter, with Bianca Le Grange and Masello Motana, for SABC1’s flagship music show One, and became more involved with radio.

She joined Metro Fm, South Africa’s largest English urban radio station as a DJ for the Smirnoff Experience Dance Mix Show and as a Lifestyle Team member.

TV, radio and magazines are her passion and these are the fields that she has excelled in as well. She is currently at Metro fm as a lifestyle reporter and has worked at SABC2 as a promo producer.
