We first met Shantal Monique back in 2011 when she became Cybergirl of the Week. Soon after, she was named Cybergirl of the Month for May 2012 and proceeded to work with us five more times on several galleries and videos. Now, we’re so excited to feature Shantal in this International spread for Pl ayboy South Africa. “People look at me and see a hot blonde, but there is so much more to me than that,” says Shantal of herself. “I’m a very dedicated student. I thrive on late nights and maintaining my 4.0 GPA.” Though she has plans outside of modeling, she has loved this work. “I had wanted to be a Playboy model for as long as I could remember,” she shares. “For me, Playboy is about female empowerment. I’m sensual, adventurous, and loving. Why wouldn’t I want to be a Playboy model?” Check out all her features right here on Playboy Plus.
