Alesia Van Achterbergh
Head of Administration
About Alesia Van Achterbergh
I was born in a small town, Tzaneen, moved to the “big city” in 2008. I started studying Medical Science at the University of Pretoria and after two years at Tukkies, I realised that being in the medical field wasn’t my passion. I left Tukkies, immediately started a course in Event Management and thats where it all started. I’ve been in the marketing and events industry for the past 7 years. Starting my own company was always a
big dream, a dream that came true in 2017. I love what I do, creating something beautiful from a blank canvas and I will never stop seeking for new opportunities. I became part of the OMSA family in 2021
and cannot wait to see what 2022 will bring! Being part of the Opulent models team of 2022 will definitely be one for the books and I am really excited to see what the future holds for all the new finalists.
