Miss SA Youth Ambassador Face is a pageant under the umbrella of Miss Youth Voice South Africa . This pageant is formed to give South African youth the opportunity to showcase their talents and be noticed worldwide.
One of the semi finalists is 24 year old first year Management student at Orbit college from Letlhabile (Brits) in North West, Mandisa Nkosi.
Nkosi grew up in a disadvantaged background but that did not stop her from following her dreams.
“I stay with my father, stepmother and siblings, we survive on social grants hence I am working hard to change the situation at home.”
“I look up to myself because there are certain things that broke me inside but instead it made me to love myself more,” said Nkosi.
“I was inspired to enter for the pageant because I want to bring hope to the hopeless, be a hero to those in need of a role model, it id not where you are from but where you are heading and never let any situation bring you down or define you,” she added.
Her future plans include opening up her own modelling agency and helping upcoming models achieve their dreams.
Nkosi can achieve all of this if she wins the pageant and needs support in doing so. She appeals her community and surrounding areas to help her with things that are needed such as different attires for the pageant.
Interested people can get hold of her on Facebook at Mandisa Nkosi.
