Shane is a fitness freak and likes to work out at the gym and attend power boxing classes. In her spare time, she likes to be indulged in a good book to unwind herself and relax.

The 22 years old, Benobni beauty is an adventure queen. She unveils her adventurous side and talks about her voyage experiences and says, “I’m a bit of an adrenalin junkie. I’ve been bungee jumping, zip-lining, swimming with dolphins and I have experienced sky-diving simulation. Next on my bucket list is conquering the Soweto Tower. One day I would like to skydive over the Palm Islands in Dubai. I crave adventure!”

Shane follows and considers Oprah Winfrey as her solitary idol. Oprah Winfrey is an American media proprietor, talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist.

She is a true example of persistence and determination. Her teachings are empowering and I admire the way she uses her platform to reach out to millions of people across the world and touch so many lives. She inspires me on both a personal and a professional level.”
