Fingers crossed as Barobetse shines at Miss Supranational


Miss Supranational Botswana, Leah Barobetse’s impressive run leading up to the Miss Supranational International grand finale tomorrow (Saturday) has given Batswana renewed hope of bringing the crown home.

Barobetse has been in Poland for over two weeks to participate in the Miss Supranational International pageant grand finale and has thus far done pretty well. Giving an update on Barobetse’s progress at the pageantry, Miss Supranational Botswana spokesperson, Kaone Moremong, said the queen has made it to the semi-finals after being second runner-up for African contestants in the Supra Model of the Year category. She explained that the winner will secure herself a spot in the Top 24. Moremong added that the contestants also presented their ‘From the Ground Up’ projects to a panel of judges.

“Barobetse’s project is called “A Heart Can” and aims to create awareness and a safe environment for people with disabilities to showcase their talents regardless of their circumstances. The project has been rated one of the most impactful by major pageant influential platforms. On the last week of the competition there are Preliminary Evaluation rounds that our queen will compete in such as elegance gown - a showcase of her pageantry walk in an evening gown of her choice, confidence round, a swimwear round where the contestants were provided with swimwear from one of the organisation’s sponsors and a private interview where each contestant is given three minutes to impress a panel of judges in a private interview,” she said.
