10-year-old Amahle Zondi is steadily modelling her way to the top.
This young beauty has been selected to travel to Orlando in the USA this year to showcase her talent at the International ARTS Talent Showcase in July, Zululand Observer reports.
She was chosen after taking home the Public Choice Award during the prestigious Mini Miss RSA pageant.
“I’m super excited for the opportunity and can’t wait to jet off to the USA,” she said.
This down-to-earth Grade 5 pupil from Empangeni Preparatory School in eMatshana Reserve, KwaZulu-Natal, is definitely no stranger to the limelight, and has taken part in various beauty pageants across South Africa. She is also a member of Star Dancers.
In support of this young beauty, her school will organise a fund-raising gala dinner for Amahle and other talented youngsters within the school.
“We feel excited and honoured to have one of us representing SA overseas. This shows the calibre of our learners?” said teacher and mentor Judith Dunn.
“We hope to raise funds to assist her on her journey, but we also aim to assist other talented youngsters in the creative arts. Our learners are so inspiring and we will continue to support their talents,” she said.
