KWAMACHIBISA model Nonkanyiso Zaquisha Marabela is a KwaZulu-Natal woman taking part in the Miss Eagle 2018.

Marabela said she decided to take part in the pageant because it focuses on women empowerment and is not only about beauty, it’s also about brains and how women can positively impact their communities.

The pageant takes place on December 15, 2018, in Johannesburg and contestants from nine provinces will compete for the title.

“For now, I just need people to vote for me so I can be a finalist next year,” Marabela said.

To vote for Marabela SMS Nonkanyiso to 35334. SMS’s cost R3.

In the run-up to the pageant the 26-year-old, who works at the Edendale Hospital, has been involved in various community work including visiting the Emseni Old Age Home where she cooked and cleaned.

“I also visited the Ekujabuleni Children’s Home where I cooked, cleaned and gave a motivational talk to the children,” she said.

She said she has been modelling since the age of 16 and loves taking part in beauty pageants because they are about grooming women.

“Being a contestant in a pageant also gives one the opportunity to help others through community work,” Marabela said.
