A 37-YEAR-OLD woman, Nazneen Moolla from Scottsville, has set out to prove that no matter what the circumstances are, you can always make a difference. She is now working with White’s (Women Holistically Interacting to Empower) KZN Top Model SA and Project Life Ambassador search.
The philanthropic pageant is the first of its kind and encourages its participants to engage and give back to the community. Moolla, who was a finalist, said that she was inspired to participate in the pageant after she felt like she was not doing enough with her life.
“Being 37 with two children while being married to a businessman, I felt like I could use my blessings and platform to give back to my community. I am also at an age where I have come to terms with and accepted my flaws which have been the building blocks of my strength,” said Moolla.
Since embarking on her pageantry journey, Moolla has hosted various feeding schemes, held motivational talks for young woman, delivered everyday necessary items including food and toiletries to those in need, and has made guest appearances at various events. Marvelling at the feeling it gives her, Moolla claimed that she never knew how naturally giving came to her until she started this journey.
“I needed a platform — an opportunity to have a positive influence in my community. My catch phrase throughout my journey has always been #makingafabuloustomorrow. I believe that small acts by millions of people can transform the world,” said Moolla.
Crediting the pageant to that of a life-changing journey, Moolla stated that she has become the woman her younger self always wanted to be through the pageant.
Moolla won first princess on Saturday and won the award for most charity involvement.
