THE fourth Miss High Schools North beauty pageant will take place on December 16 at Ekamuti Lodge, Ondangwa.
Speaking to Confidente Miss High Schools North Beauty pageant founder Sandro Ithana said this event is aimed at raising funds that will be used to help less fortunate children in the northern regions and further give young girls in high schools a chance to take part in a modelling platform that will provide them with the confidence of self and empower them when it comes to making important life decisions.
Ithana further added that this event gives the community an opportunity to truly see all the talent possessed by these young women as well as their ability to make significant contributions to the community’s wellbeing and development by raising awareness on matters affecting the youth during their campaigns.
“We want these young women to know what they mean to the nation and we believe that by celebrating them through our pageant they are able to see that they are the future,” said Ithana.
Last year’s winner Ester Shifotoka from Reverend Juuso Shikongo SSS will be handing over the crown to one of the 2016 finalists from 16 high schools, namely; Jo-Ann Antonio (Otjikoto SSS), Judy Bauleth (Erundu SSS), Sylvia Shuumbwa (Mweshipandeka High School), Madelen Guriras (Ekulo SSS), Rosalia Ipinge (Ekwafo SSS), Deodata Dos Santos (Etosha SSS), Teopolina Uupindi (Heroes Private School), Frieda Shali (Reverend Juuso Shikongo SSS), Martha Nelondo (Nehale SSS ), Lusia Kapolo (Gabriel Taapopi SSS), Denysia Kapolo (Oshakati SSS ), Maria Shoonyeka (Andimba SSS), Tuwilika Mwetulundila (Uukule SSS), Melania Matheus (Ondangwa JS), Pandeni Mvula (Oshigambo High School ) and Omagano Shivute (Negumbo SSS) .
