I like spending time with old people, grannies to be specific and children. I like adventures, eating, nature and most of all modelling.

I dislike people who are undermining and judgmental. I dislike seeing other people struggle.

Tell us about yourself

 

I am a young passionate girl who adores nature and helping those in need. Currently studying at Unisa (Sunny Side campus) doing Human Settlements Management. I believe in skills and development amongst the youth. With them gaining skills they get a chance to opening their own businesses with those same acquired skills.

 

Please share with us an experience that almost destroyed you, an experience that almost cost you your life, however you decided to go out there and Fetch Your Life 

 

I got involved in a car accident when I was supposed to go write my final Life Science exam. When it all happened, I thought it was the end of my life and that I was not going to write my exam. That day I would have lost my life, but God said no it’s not my time. Even though I was in an accident I decided to go write my exam the next day.

 

How has this experience impacted your life?

 

This experience impacted me negatively in terms of insecurities whenever I pass that spot where it all happened. This year I almost got in An accident at that same spot so you can understand that whenever I have to pass there, I just get scared.

 

Do you think that had it not been for this experience you would have become the person you are?

 

Had it not been for this experience I wouldn’t be as vigilant on the road as I am today. It also helped me be alert in life not just on the road. I am now vigilant of everything around me.

 

What advise do you have for someone that has been through the same experience?

 

My advice for someone that has been through the same experience would be that they should not let downfalls bring them down or stop them from reaching their targets rather push them to go and fetch their life’s. Also, that people should be alert on the road, they should keep their eyes on the road.

What does women Empowerment mean to you?

 

Women empowerment to me means that women are also recognized in male dominated fields. Women can take up space. It means we are increasing women’s access to control over the strategic life choices that affect them. So, women should be live more on themselves. I once read a post on Instagram that says, think of how much you love your boyfriend that is how much you need to believe in yourself and more. Have dreams I always say dream big because your dreams are achieved and valid!

 

 

What inspired you to do pageants 

 

I joined the pageantry world when I was 5 years old. I was discovered by Mr Zweli Dlela of Tuscany Modelling School. It wasn’t easy but with the help of my mother I rocked those stages. It wasn’t easy in terms of I wouldn’t have those nice beautiful dresses as some of my peers so I would sometimes feel small. I would have low self-esteem. My pageantry history has been an awesome one again not forgetting the amazing moments. Have acquired many titles under my name and found loving sisters in this pageant world.

 

Well I wouldn’t say I was inspired to join pageantry because my mom made me join as she also was a model herself. So, I would say I found myself in pageantry and I’m glad I did. But again, seeing inspiring women in this world had me saying, you know what I can be like them and be more nothing can tell me that I cannot.

 

What are some of your achievements?

 

My first achievement was winning Miss Tswelelopele. I won Miss Ext 12 little, Miss Kagiso 1st princess (primary), Top Model (position 2), Miss Gauteng Talent freaks,GDARD climate change scholar competition 2018 first position, the recent one Miss Kagiso 2020/2021 and many more.

 

What should we expect from you in 2021?

 

In 2021 you should expect to see more of me in our community. Helping grow and empowering my peers. Should expect some community work in Kagiso. I will be studying but you rest assured that I will not leave my duties laying around.

 

What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?

 

As I value my passion and teachings. The legacy I want to leave behind is that of passion and teachings. Pursue your passions because they are infectious and valid, do not miss the opportunity to pursue your passion and then continue to look for new adventures. My contribution of teaching hopefully enlightens Lives of those who learn from me, my teachings keep on giving because it leads me to other learning’s that I share with others. 

A great leader once said “Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you”.
