“When I entered for this Contest I was at a point in life of quieting modelling due to reasons I would not like to point out. It was last year July when I was tagged in a post by my relative on Miss Eagle South Africa 2018 Facebook page, that she thought I would be interested in entering for the contest. Well actually she was right! What caught my attention mostly was the platform – its a National Contest and back then I have always wished to enter pageants on that level and i told myself let me try this”,She says.
“I followed the steps for entering and waited to be selected as one of the contestants so that I know that I am fully a contestant in this Contest. Early September I received a call from them to congratulate me that I have been selected as one of the contestants. It was so exciting, it was like I could scream or shout, I couldn’t hold the excitement. The first person I told the good news it was my relative who tagged me in the post and then my big brother, roommate and my family” ,She says.
