Out of all the seven contestants, she impressed the judges so much that they gave her the first position.

Ratlhageng is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Social Science Degree majoring in Psychology and Sociology at the University of Botswana (UB).

She impressed the judges and the crowd with her thoughtful and excellent answer to a question about a Setswana proverb by the judges.

Speaking to ShowTime, the newly crowned Miss UB Setso made reference to the first president, the late Seretse Khama’s words when he said ‘Chaba e senang ngwao, ke moka e latlhegile’(a nation without culture is a lost one), hence the need to embrace culture.

She also stated that now that she has won the title, her next step going forward is to be an advocate for street market vendors and make sure they get a sheltered area where they can use to operate from.

She walked away with free training at a beauty hub academy, P2,000 worth of beauty treatments at Camelot, P1,500 shopping voucher at Edgars and Setso exclusive game and books.
