Namibian beauty queen Minsozi Kompeli will leave for India on Thursday 18 April to represent Namibia at Miss Glam World. Miss Glam World is an international beauty pageant in search of talented women worldwide to bring them together to learn from each other and be taught about women empowerment.

Kompeli is a model from Pageant Girls represented by Bobby Kaandjosa and has taken part in numerous beauty pageants before. “I won Miss Khomas High in 2007, Miss High School in 2010, Miss First Year of the then Polytechnic of Namibia in 2011, Miss Swapo Youth League in 2014 and I was Miss Republic of Namibia 2018 runner-up, and now I am off to take part in Miss Glam World,” said Kompeli.

She describes herself as a beautiful woman inside and out, confident, bubbly and goal-driven.

The model shared that she was selected by Bobby Kaandjosa to represent Namibia, an opportunity she is grateful for. She mentioned that she looks forward to representing Namibia with honour and pride.

“There are about 60 countries taking part in this competition and I do not want to let my country down so I am going to do the best I can,” she promised.

Kompeli told tjil that she is super excited to be taking part in this beauty pageant and hopes to gain international experience and exposure.

“Most importantly I look forward to learning and uniting with other models from other countries,” she said.

The beauty queen added that she is grateful for the overwhelming support she has received ever since announcing that she is the chosen model to represent Namibia at this year's Miss Glam World.

“The support has been amazing. I am glad to know that I have my country's support. It is so motivating.

“The High Commission of India in Windhoek sponsored me with a free visa and linked me with Namibians in India to come and support me… that is how big the support has been,” she added. Sharing her future plans, Kompeli said that she is a cartoon artist and would like to publish her own books one day. However, for now she said, her focus is on completing her post graduate studies in human resources at the Namibia University of Science and Technology. “I am doing my Honours and that takes up much of my time, but I am not complaining because I value education so much,” she said.

She also revealed that she is going to be launching her own modelling academy to groom young girls passionate about modelling. “You cannot model forever so in a few years' time I really want to give back to my community by mentoring girls,” she said.

She further stated that starting a modelling agency is important for her because modelling has done so much for her confidence and has provided her with so many opportunities.

“I never really used to believe in myself and I attribute my confidence to modelling. I know there are girls who feel the same so having an agency will give me a platform to impact such girls.”
