Growing up as a big girl was not easy to accept. The support of my family and friends helped her to gain confidence and accept the size of her body. As a peer educator in the Institutional HIV/AIDS Unit (IHAU) and participating in women empowerment initiatives and other programs, helped her to find a family that shaped her and gave her a voice to be proud ofbeing different.
Accepting her body, as a plus size lead her to pursuing a dream of participating in a plus size modelling. She won Miss Plus Size Face of Mafikeng title on Saturday, 29 June 2019. Winning this title and becoming part of the Lesco Events team changed her life for the better.
