FORMER Miss Gamalakhe and Miss Soul Café 2015, Amahle Ngaleka, has taken her career to the next level and opened a modelling agency, Glenamy Models.

The agency is aimed at disadvantaged, aspiring models. Ngaleka recently graduated from Boston College where she studied to be a paralegal.

Growing up, Ngaleka participated in “home-grown” beauty pageants.

“As a child I participated in pageants­ organised by a group of neighbours just as entertainment for little boys and girls, not big ones like the Mr and Miss Gamalakhe.”

She said her sister, Thule, was her inspiration.

“What also inspired me to become a model is firstly to gain confidence to embrace the imperfections I saw in my body and I also saw it as a hobby, which would be a reminder that I have to take good care of my body,” said Amahle.

The first big and official pageant she entered was the 2014 Mr and Miss Gamalakhe where she was crowned queen.

She said winning the crown gave her confidence and made her realise she could pursue a modelling career.

“Being crowned Miss Gamalakhe made me realise I do have talent and it put pressure on me to prove that I am not just a beauty, I also have the brains to develop the youth in my community,” she said.

Ngaleka started her modelling agency this year and already has budding models.

“What inspired me to start a modelling­ agency in Gamalakhe is the passion I had when I saw a lot of disadvantaged, aspiring models who couldn’t afford to join agencies in towns and suburbs, but who have amazing potential and love modelling.”

The agency welcomes females between ages of seven and 22. For more information, contact Ngaleka on her Facebook page Amahle Mlambo Ngaleka.
