She recently relocated to New Zealand and has continued her advocacy for the environment inspired by her love for conserving nature. The former Miss Earth Seneo Perry and a model at heart have also continued her passion as a model. The beauty queens seem to be busy in New Zealand. This week she shared with Tswalebs about tapping into the modeling industry of Australia.

“My passion for modeling came when I was still very young. I was always persuaded to join pageantry, and I did in high school back in 2011. I joined Miss Rainbow High School in my first year of secondary school and won the title against form 5s and higher. I continued to take my craft seriously and in 2019 I joined Miss Earth, made it to the top 5, and scooped Best Project. In 2020 I won the Miss Earth Botswana title. In all this I had always hoped to model for big fashion clothing lines like Balenciaga even though Botswana does not have a big market for modeling for such brands, I knew that someday it will happen,” she said.

“I got hooked under an acting and modeling agency called Sharon Power (New Zealand and Australian Based) and signed up with her at the beginning of March. From then till last month things have been a bit slow in our industry due to New Zealand being in the red light (COVID related) and there were many restraints for the modeling and acting industry especially for auditioning.”

Luck has always been on her side since day one she got in New Zealand as brands were contacting her to work with her. She also wished to continue her modeling career when she gets to New Zealand and she is living that dream.

“Last month I got a really huge endorsement to do Brand Influencing for Oscar Wylee Eyewear. It came through the agency I'm under Sharon Power. I was really amazed when I got this opportunity from the many other models I am up against within the agency. My second one was with Casetify which is a top-tier phone cover-making company based in Australia which directly contacted me on my social media if I could do brand influencing for them,” she said.

“I believe that very soon I will be doing bigger brands such as Gucci, Balenciaga, Prada, and Louis Vuitton as I continue in this regard. I believe that working with such international brands is a stepping stone to many greater opportunities. I am also looking forward to being in the acting scene as New Zealand's film industry has grown rapidly. 

The Lord of The Rings and many other American movies/series are filmed here. I will also continue my advocacy for the environment with my movement #PeopleWildlifeEnvironment which I am planning to hopefully have a show on tv where we talk about all things climate change.”
