Akhona Xoseni, 22, of Philippi, is the latest contestant who is appealing for votes in order to win the title of Miss Cape Town, which will be held in Worcester this Saturday 14 May.

The much anticipated competition is drawing ever nearer, and the models participating in it are hitting the road running trying their best to woo support from fans.

Xoseni started her journey in catwalk land in 2012 when she entered the Miss Valentine competition at Sinethemba High School, where she was a learner.

She came second best in the competition.

In the same year, she then entered the Miss Charlesville Mall competition in Gugulethu, competing against 79 other models, and finished in the top 10.

In 2013 she entered the Miss People’s Choice contest in Philippi where she made it to the top five.

Xoseni, who does entertain any thoughts of giving-up, continued with her fighting spirit and entered for the Miss Western Cape in 2014 and made it to the top four.

Finishing at the top of the competition automatically qualified her to enter for the Miss Mzantsi competition which was held in Paarl the same year, but she could not participate, because of financial constraints, according to her.

In 2014 she then entered for the Miss Diamante Fairy of the Western Cape which was held in Bellville and was crowned the queen.

She was Miss Dream Girl in 2014.

“All my achievements show that I am going far with modelling.

I am now gunning for the title of Miss South Africa. I decided to enter for Miss Cape Town this year, because I believe in making a change in people’s lives. This competition is about helping those who are less fortunate.

I will donate clothes, food and look for sponsors for children from disadvantaged backgrounds should I win the competition,” Xoseni said.

She is also a finalist for Miss Uni-Africa, which competition will be held in August in Johannesburg.

Her duty is to go to schools and spread the word against Xenophobia to learners and also do some presentations, she revealed.

Xoseni is currently doing a learnership in fire and rescue at the airport, a course, she said, started in 2014.

These achievements prove beyond doubt that Xoseni is a veteran of the catwalk, and should make an impression with the judges.

Xoseni appealed to anyone who is willing to assist her with donations of tin stuff of food, clothes, toys which she will handover to any centre for disadvantaged children.

You can vote for her by SMSing MissCT-Akhona to 47611 and the SMS cost R3.

Or you can also vote for her on her Facebook, Akhona Xoseni Miss Cape Town 2016 Finalist and you can contact her via her page if you wish to help with the donation.
