10 Questions For: Sandi-lee Permall
This passionate makeup artist is an inspiration to all. Although she has been wheelchair bound since birth, Sandi-lee continues to do what she loves and is the creator of a make-up app called ‘Tempted by Make-Up’.
I’m the author and creator of a make-up guide book and app called ‘Tempted by Make-Up’. The app helps make-up junkies keep up-to-date with the latest ever-changing beauty trends.
I’ve been disabled and wheelchair bound since birth. The first wheelchair I owned and the only one my family could afford was a manually operated one, which I found to be very difficult to manoeuvre. One day my physiotherapist told me that an anonymous donor had given me a brand-new mechanical wheelchair and my life has changed ever since. Operating the new wheelchair is so much easier and as a result I’ve been more independent. To the anonymous donor, I can't thank you enough for your kindness!
Only three people? Hmmm that's tough. Well, my boyfriend as well as my great-grandmother and my grandfather who have both passed away.
‘Roar’ by Katy Perry. It's such a powerful song and conveys an empowering message.
6. What would you say is the biggest misconception about you?
People think I am all quiet, but once you get to know me I'm like a talkative bubble waiting to explode. Haha!
I’ve definitely had to overcome the fact that I’m perceived differently. Just because I look different to able bodied people does not mean I’m fundamentally dissimilar.
I’d love to travel abroad. I have never been overseas nor have I ever been on an airplane.
10. Which well- known South African personality would you hypothetically, without a doubt, be able to beat in a one-on-one dance-off and why?
No one, I can't dance. But if I could dance, I would say Michael Jackson. Okay, I guess he doesn't count - well then it has to be Chris Brown. He’s a good dancer.
