Motamma Sesinyi is Miss Tourism Botswana 2012 and Tourism Ambassador, and since being crowned she is determined to take on the role and all that is required of it head on. She describes herself as beautiful and intelligent and it is clear by her works that she does comprise of all that a beauty queen should have, the beauty and the brains.

The 27-year-old beauty who describes herself as both beautiful and intelligent is pursuing a Master in Science (MSc) at Botswana College of Agriculture.  She says she was raised by strict and highly disciplined parents who believed in the saying, "spare the rod and spoil the child."

Bearing this in mind, it is unfortunate to learn that she took the blame for almost everything that went wrong around the household.  Her childhood experiences, however, moulded her into the young woman with strict values and principles that she is today.  Sesinyi says she has always liked beauty pageants and dancing, so when the opportunity to enter Miss Tourism presented itself, she didn't hesitate to try her luck.She said: "I love pageants and I'm proud of Botswana tourism.  I wanted to be the tourism ambassador to market this wonderful country's rich resources and culture the world over."  The one thing that really stands out about Sesinyi is her passion when she talks about her responsibilities as Miss Tourism.  "I am a youth who loves her country dearly and believes in Vision 2016, so I want to actively participate towards the development and growth of our country.  I knew in winning this pageant that I would be given the platform to sell Botswana to the world and to attract more tourists to the country and promote the touring spirit amongst citizens for them to know more about their country," said Sesinyi.  She is happy  that through Miss Tourism, she has the platform to be instrumental in Botswana's development.  "I wanted to form tourism clubs and conduct projects that engage the youth and motivate them to become tourists and explore Botswana.  I also wanted to infuse the safe and secure nation pillar into tourism and use it to preach against poaching to encourage a safe and secure environment for our wildlife to roam freely."  In Bangkok, Thailand, Sesinyi carried the Botswana brand high.  She said: "I left Botswana with merchandise from Botswana Tourism Organisation (BTO).  I had 120 mini DVDs and 60 Botswana maps."
