Selato and Phampa win Miss Hope Pageants crowns


Two beautiful young women Charlotte Selato and Resego Phampa, have won Miss Teen Hope and Miss Hope International Botswana respectively. Post crowning, Selato told Arts & Culture in an interview that it felt good for her to be crowned the queen, adding that she was very proud of herself because it was her greatest achievement.

She added that her win allowed her to reach her dream of being a queen. "I think I won the pageant because of the three main aspects that I believe to be a secret in beauty pageants and these are dedication, hard work and self branding. I worked very hard on my projects more than any other thing in Hope because we were told from day one that the project weighs more and one has to be sure and confident on what they are working on. One of the challenges I encountered is time management.

I believe time is something that has to be managed or used wisely especially in beauty pageants,” she revealed. Selato said she got support from a lot of people but she singled out her mother as her greatest support system. She also said at the moment she is still working on raising awareness on child sexual abuse. “I am also looking forward to helping young people in Botswana normalise regular HIV testing even if it means having to get self test kits in pharmacies," she said.
