Meet Michelle and Janine
Michelle McLean was born in Namibia and by spending her childhood in the bush her love and appreciation grew, for wild-life and the many diverse cultures and communities of Namibia.
Michelle traveled the world as a model and shortly after her return won the coveted title of Miss Universe in 1992, representing the newly independent Namibia. Bright lights and the international stages of the world couldn't keep Michelle away from home. Using her new title and world recognition, she founded the Michelle McLean Children Trust, one of the largest NGOs in Southern Africa, that has raised millions of dollars for thousands of projects over the 27 year span, in education and upliftment for children and communities throughout Namibia. One of the projects was teaching children the importance of living in harmony as communities with nature and wildlife. As a recognized Ambassador for Namibia, Michelle initiated and coordinated the Miss Universe Pageant in Namibia in 1995. With the viewership of a billion people, the idea was to bring tourism and investment to the country. It was huge success, seeing Namibia's tourism increase the following year by 11%.
Michelle lives in Miami, USA, with her husband, legendary goalkeeper for Manchester United, Gary Bailey, and their children. Gary grew up in South Africa, and has been a partner in a number of game farms over the years. He then also became a fully certified conservation guide.
