Aspiring model raises funds for Thailand


Nine-year-old Duduetsang Kimberly Matheakgomo is determined to host more dance classes in order to raise enough money for her trip to Thailand where she will be representing Botswana in a beauty pageant.

Duduetsang will compete at the Miss Junior Idol World pageant that will run from June 8-13, 2022 in Thailand. The young girl is not only a go-getter but also a dancer, actress, cheerleader and model with big dreams. Duduetsang, who already co-owns a dancing agency called KatKim Delight Dance, is very passionate about dancing and modeling. Recently, she hosted an even dubbed Road 2 Thailand Pop Up Class as part of her fundraising initiative. In an interview with Arts & Culture, she said her passion for dancing inspired her to come up with that event as she knew it would be fun. However, she pointed out that the event was not successful as people did not turn up in large numbers as anticipated. "The weather was not good but one bad encounter does not mean that what lies ahead is bad as well or is bound to fail so my desire is greater than my fear.

I will host more classes to raise funds for me to go to Thailand to compete in the Miss Junior Idol World that will run from June 8-13, 2022." "So far I have raised P4,750 but I need P53,000 to make it to Thailand. I have received sponsorship from the following; Thulaganyo Segokgo P1,500, Kelbry Fashion Designer P400, Gasefele Seithamo P1,000, Baby Amari one attire, Star Hezek- four attires, Shana Mokone - one attire, Dahlia - one attire, Kaynkim - one attire and Smith the Seam Reaper -two attires," she said. Furthermore, she explained that she plans on hosting a Dance Off 'An All Style Competition', which she believes will boost her finances for Thailand.
