Kim Jayde biography
She was born in Harare, Zimbabwe but grew up in Bulawayo. She attended the Dominican Convent Junior School and then enrolled at the Girls College Boarding School to do her secondary school studies.

She also graduated from the University of Stellenbosch with an Honours Degree in Social Work and Psychology.
Kim Jayde parents
She is the second born of a large family of 4 brothers and three sisters. In an interview with People Magazine, what Jayde remembers about her childhood is that she and her siblings rode bicycles around the city. Growing up, she was a shy girl and did not even have as many friends at school, but all that changed when she went to a boarding school. She shared that she was often bullied during her Junior school and would sometimes eat her lunch in the toilet.
She appreciates the small things they did together since she grew up in a small community. Today when she visits home, she likes to chill with her family and prefers home-made dishes since her father is a great cook.
The gorgeous model has worked hard and has had her fair share of hardships and challenges to be where she is right now. After moving to South Africa in 2009, she began her modeling career. During her first year, she rarely got gigs since the industry was very selective; they only wanted slim, six-foot-tall models, which she is not. She was rejected continuously and would attend up to three modeling casts in a day and would receive a no.
Speaking to ZAlebs, she recalls that things had gotten so bad that she could not afford basic needs like food, and she had to strategically visit modeling agencies during the lunch hours so that she could get her meal for the day. She would also walk to the agency since she had no fare, and she realized that she could not rely on modeling alone to pay her bills.
She then became a hostess and started doing promo work to make a living until she worked her way to the top. She is not ashamed of her struggles, and she hopes to inspire all the other girls.
