For Pedrossa to boost her chances of winning, she also has to do a lot of charity work and raise some funds for Entrepreneurship Day.

“My only challenge now is to raise R2 000 for Entrepreneurship Day,” she said. She said she has learnt a lot ever since she joined the world of modeling.

“Pageants are empowerment platforms and a great tool to engage in activities and projects to help people. Being a model is good, especially if you live up to your duties and responsibilities as a role model.

“Through my experience in the industry, I have learned to be patient with people and not to be too hard on myself,” she added.

Pedrossa began modeling in 2015 and has since won several titles. This includes Miss Judaroeis Limpopo 2015, Miss Vhavenda 2017, Miss Venda Beauty and Culture 2017 (2nd Runner Up), Empress SA Royal Princess 2017, and Miss Thulamela 2017 (1st Princes).
