YONELA Mcibo (26), from Kokstad has entered Miss Eagle South Africa 2018 and wants to take the title when it takes place in December 2018.

Mcibo is a forensic investigator in Johannesburg.

She said she saw the advert for the pageant on social media, and entered.

As part of the community work requirement Mcibo cooks for residents in an old-age home in Johannesburg and cleaned a church.

“Last week I helped mothers of Gugwini village in Umzimkhulu by cooking food for a wedding. Everything I have done for the community I posted on social media so I can qualify for the semi-finals of the competition,” said Mcibo.

Growing up in the small town of Kokstad did not stop her from entering the pageant.

“Part of the competition entails me to help charities and learn modelling, fashion and beauty. I have to build my brand by meeting stakeholders such as the media, celebrities, businesses and politicians,” she said.

Contestants have to be voted for by the public.

To vote for her, SMS Yonela to 35334 and follow her Facebook page – Yonela Mcibo Miss Eagle South Africa 2018 Brand Ambassador.
