LOCAL beauty, Alisha Jetu, has made it to the top 30 of the Miss Commonwealth South Africa pageant.

The 20-year-old, who is passionate about pageants and charity, is the only contestant from Pietermaritzburg and one of two in KwaZulu-Natal.

Born and bred in Pietermaritzburg Jetu, is one of a set of triplets and matriculated from Dunveria Secondary School. She lives with her mother is Orient Heights and is excited to begin her journey in the pageant world.

“I was always interested in pageants growing up, but suffered with very low self-confidence when I was younger. I started going to modelling classes at Irene’s Models and graduated last year.

“I decided to enter the competition because I wanted to get into pageants. This is my first experience and, even though it’s very challenging, I am really looking forward to it,” she said.

Jetu said that she is looking forward to the opportunity of being an ambassador of change.

“I have always been willing to help others where I can and inspire young women and help them in some way.”

She is studying a diploma in early childhood development and hopes to open her own crèche once she qualifies.

She also wanted to complete her degree in law, but she had to give it up once she started working because the workload was not manageable.

Jetu hopes her story will inspire other young women who are introverts and lack confidence to make a name for themselves.

“I just want people to know that they must be the best they can be and find strength in self-motivation, which has been a key factor for me,” she said.

The finals will take place on 24 November in Boksburg, Gauteng. Find her on Facebook and like her page to vote for her Alisha Jetu Miss Commonwealth South Africa.
