Focus on Women - Susan Chardy: Model and Actress

news / Focus on Women - Susan Chardy: Model and Actress

3rd May 2018
Susan Chardy has been an ambassador of NMCF UK since 2008. Her love of children and her African upbringing driver her to want to help those children less fortunate than others.

She hosted various fundraising events in London and New York to help us raise funds for NMCF. She was born in Zambia, and educated in England where she studied and graduated from Oxford Brookes, majoring in Performing Arts. Susan is a model and actress who has been in magazines including Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan and Seventeen, along with many others. She has worked with clients such as Pantene, Virgin Atlantic, Yves Rocher, Ponds, Avon, and was the face of Rimmel London. More recently Susan was the face of Citroen world wide.

"Growing up in Zambia I didn't have a lot but that little I had and what my father was able to do for me by getting me the best education, changed my life and in turn, the opportunities I was afforded in life. I was lucky enough to have loving parents who loved me and provided a roof over my head, healthcare and education. To some, those are the basics but those 'basics' are what opened doors for me. I believe every child from whatever background deserves the same chance I got. A child should be safe, healthy and educated, that way they are equipped to take on whatever life has to offer when they step in to the big wide world!"
