Top 10 Finalist – Nokukhanya Khanyile
Yes, there’s a doctor in the house. Nokukhanya is currently working as a medical doctor in her second year of internship at the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, but in her spare hours it is socialising, party, dinners and hanging out with friends.
And it is this balance that has Nokukhanya feeling she has what it takes to be a Delush Diva. “I love a great party or dinner with the girls, but also recognise the responsibility I have to be the best, safest doctor for my patients. I feel I can show how easy it can be to have fun with a glass of Delush when I am not on duty, but safe and responsible when I am working.”
As far as her fondness for Delush goes, the doctor says the Natural Sweet Red is her favourite. “I simply love the wine for its taste, but also the versatility in being able to make other drinks such as those delicious pop-tails that are on the Delush Wines website.”
Having gotten to know the other finalists in the Delush Diva Competition, Nokukhanya says it is a huge honour to count among these ladies. “When I think about the group of women in the top 10 I’m so incredibly honoured to be associated with their diversity, commitment to their craft and beauty. But to be chosen to possibly represent a brand that I love for doing something I love is an extra bonus, because I feel that Delush brand represents the variety of flavours in our lives as the different roles we all play.”
And as far as the prizes go, Nokukhanya is most excited about the True Love spread. “Most people think that doctors are super serious or even boring and I’m ready to show people that, not only are we committed to our patients but we’re also fun and full of life.”
