Johannesburg: The woman shot dead in double-amputee Olympian runner Oscar Pistorius' house was a model, a law school graduate and an entrepreneur committed to empowering women.
Reeva Steenkamp was to give an inspirational talk Thursday at a Johannesburg school.
Steenkamp had become a celebrity in her own right, said Publicist Sarit Tomlinson. She was one of FHM magazine's 100 Sexiest Women in the World for two years running, appeared in international and South African advertisements and was a celebrity contestant on Tropika Island of Treasure filmed in Jamaica. She was also the South African face of Avon cosmetics.
