Hi! My name is Mikayla and I am 6-years old. I was born via emergency c-section in January 2011, on a very rainy day in my mom’s hometown in the Northern Cape. In fact, on the day I was born the Orange River burst its banks for the first time in 100 years!


My mom thinks I am the most beautiful girl in the world and refers to me as her “willing child”. I love wearing princess dresses and anything purple, pink and sparkly – but don’t be surprised if you see me rolling down the street on my skateboard. I’m the apple of my dad’s eye, and I can get away with pretty much anything when it comes to him – mom is a little harder to crack (but I am working on it).


I love Peppa Pig, Barbie, Hello Kitty, music, books, rad sneakers, dresses, skateboards and anything princess related. I have a strong adventurous spirit, but the softest heart. I like playing with my mom’s make-up, but she keeps telling me that I am way too young to use cosmetics and that I am beautiful just the way I am. I love my baby brother, but he can be very annoying and I am still adjusting to sharing all the attention – toddler life is tough yo!
