Amantle Bagwasi emerged victorious, earning the coveted title of Miss Teen Africa Botswana 2024/2025 during a grand finale held on Saturday in Gaborone.

Her stunning performance in various categories including Best National Attire and Best Dress, underscored her versatility and elegance. Bagwasi’s journey to the crown was marked by her exceptional confidence and embodiment of the pageant’s empowering theme. She proved that she was not only a beautiful face but a beauty with brains. The young woman gained her spotlight during the question and answers session. During the question-answer session, she was impressive. When asked how does confidence and humility work in pageantry, Bagwasi said while many features like physical appearance, talent, and intelligence are important, confidence and humility together set a contestant apart by creating a balanced and admirable persona.

She highlighted that confidence attracts attention and admiration, while humility fosters genuine connections and respect. This combination not only enhances a contestant’s chances of winning but also ensures she serves as a positive role model who embodies grace, respect, and true inner beauty. “It enables one to handle the pressure of the stage, engage effectively with the judges and audience, and showcase her talents and personality without hesitation. Confidence is what makes a contestant stand out and leaves a lasting impression.” She added. Contestants competed in five categories including culture parade, dancing session, bikini parade, evening gown parade and the interview session. They introduced themselves to the audience as they went up the stage clad in their ethnic cultural wear while imparting pearls of wisdom to their fellow youth. Carol Kgetse, who was named the fist princess, shone brightly throughout the evening.
