TNP New Face 2017: Ameerah Smith
AMEERAH SMITH, 23
Pastry chef and grooming assistant
Besides being a pastry chef who graduated from local culinary school At-Sunrice GlobalChef Academy with a WSQ Diploma in Pastry & Bakery, the 23-year-old is also a grooming assistant at pet supply store The Pampered Pet Corner.
While these jobs may seem poles apart, both have been her childhood ambitions.
Ameerah, whose mother is Arab and father African-American, said: "I enjoy what I do and I think that is most important."
She loves baking cookies and mousse cakes.
Having started modelling last year, she joined New Face for exposure and to gain invaluable experience.
Ameerah, who would love to have a dog, added: "It is also to gain a sense of professionalism and pride in what I do."
Her list of talents do not end there.
Her biggest obsession is dancing, and she added: "I can sing, but mainly rhythm and blues."
SUBARU XV 1.6I-S
Equipped with the brand-new Subaru Global Platform for greater stability and a lighter 1.6-litre horizontally-opposed naturally aspirated Boxer engine, this crossover SUV can give a driving experience like no other. Its enhanced safety features and quality provide ultimate comfort on the road.
A Spanish classic has gained some Singapore flavour.
Churros are available at selected foodcourts for the first time, and they now come in three local flavours — kaya, ondeh ondeh and Milo dinosaur.
Churros from Churro Factory are now available at Kopitiam at Changi Airport Terminal 3, Bagus at HarbourFront Centre and Causeway Point, and Cantine at Paya Lebar Square and Jurong Point.
Velvet Fro from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
Her drink contains milk, espresso, chocolate, cocoa powder and cherry.
“This is a concoction of flavours and it is like me because it shares a similar colour to my skin. The ingredients are compatible with each other and the cherries add a velvety texture to the beverage.”
