Leungo Sephobe, who was recently crowned Miss Royal International Botswana will represent the country at the Miss Royal International beauty pageant in Orlando, Florida (USA) in June.

She added that in her preparations, she took into consideration that as a Motswana on an international stage, she had to surpass everyone.

On other matters, Sephobe advised children that their talents are not meaningless so they should explore and follow them through.
