Time is running out for the province’s beauties who still want to enter this year’s Miss Limpopo/Miss Limpopo Teen with the cut-off date being on Saturday.
Miss Limpopo 2015, Mosiah Tau shared words of encouragement and motivation for entrants. She said her journey as Miss Limpopo has been a wonderful experience and a learning curve. “In the past few months I have learnt a lot, not only about my province and its people, but also about myself as an individual,” Tau said. She cautioned that all was not glitz and glamour as people might think. She explained that a lot of work goes into being a title holder. Planning and executing projects or getting sponsors can be quite challenging and nerve wrecking; patience, resilience and persistence are required. She said that she had the privilege to strengthen these qualities in herself.
“Despite the challenges, the greatest thing about the platform of being Miss Limpopo is the ability to touch lives and inspire other people. The projects that I have run, from visiting charity homes or schools, making donations or addressing youth seminars as well as reading about other people doing great things for their communities, have stirred in me the desire to do more.”
Her advice to young women who dream of becoming the next Miss Limpopo or Miss Limpopo Teen is to be yourself and not let fear stand in your way. “This opportunity also comes with many challenges so you need to be strong. You need to be open and have the willingness to learn and grow. Entrants should also make the most of every moment and must have fun during the journey,” Tau urged.
On Saturday all entrants will be expected to attend a workshop at the Polokwane Royal Hotel to help them prepare for the pageant.
Entry forms can be collected from House of Asante Spa at 29 Jorissen Street. Alternatively send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information contact Pretty on 015 291 4836.
