Representing Namibia

09 August 2019 | Art and Entertainment

Miss Namibia 2019 top 30 finalist Lineekela Hashiyana is set to represent Namibia at the fifth edition of the Miss Heritage Global pageant in Accra, Ghana.

The event is scheduled to take place from 10 to 20 August under the theme 'Year of Return'.

Hashiyana will be the fifth Namibian model to participate in the pageant, following Miss Namibia 2017 second runner-up Tessia Mutwemezi who represented Namibia at the last edition of the pageant in 2017.

Miss Heritage Global is an international event that brings together cultural ambassadors from around the world to share their culture, learn and experience a new culture through the host country. It was founded in 2013 and it helps promote the preservation of global heritage and to create an environment of culture sharing to inspire tolerance for one another as more communities around the world become more culturally diverse.

This year 55 contestants from around the world will be spending 10 days in Ghana visiting the sites that shape Ghana's heritage and culture. The contestants will visit Cape Coast and the Ashanti kingdom. Through various activities around Accra, the models will get to interact and experience Ghana's culture through food, fashion, music and art.

“I can't wait to share my culture with the globe. I am both excited and honoured to represent Namibia.

“The previous Miss Heritage Namibia queens have done a remarkable job so I have big shoes to fill but I am ready and will do my best,” said Hashiyana.

Hashiyana is represented by Pageant Girls by Bobby K, the official national directors of the pageant in Namibia. Hashiyana is expected to jet off to Ghana today.
