Miss Namibia 2021, Chelsi Shikongo has taken to social media to reflect on the moment she was crowned Miss Namibia.
Chelsi’s life changed dramatically a few months ago when she beat 14 contestants and won the coveted title. Since then, she has been living the dream and has become a beacon of hope to many people who look up to her.
In a post, she said she is humbled by the experience, adding: “What’s meant for you will never pass you. Thinking of this day a lot these days. I remember the impact of my name being called on stage every time I close my eyes. What a time to be alive that my parents, especially my dad, got to experience this moment he manifested together. I am so humbled by this experience and the journey has only begun.”
Chelsi recently left us feeling all inspired and wanting to make a whole lot of affirmations that we aren’t even sure will materialise.
Chelsi took to Instagram to share that last year February while she was in Cape Town, South Africa, she made an affirmation poster and looking at the poster now, she has actually gotten a lot of those things she wrote done.
She said: “...I decided to share it for any of those people who need it, who needed to hear it today to read it today, especially for my younger sisters to see, because they asked me a very good question, which is if always know that I wanted to do modelling and succeed in pageantry and, no, I didn’t.”
“I just had my faith, my optimism and people who believed in and who supported me and then developing, working hard and understanding the importance of being intentional and genuine consistency. Loving what I do is why I am where I am today.”
“They gave me feedback, telling me they think I’ve always been confident and that I always knew this is what I want to do but I want to show them that it takes daily affirmations; it takes putting yourself out there; it takes trying; it takes forgiving and loving and reminding yourself all over again HEALING IS NOT LINEAR.”
