It takes the tallest gorgeous lady with brains and poise to walk a mile with us . Speaking to the publication Charmaine Chingono , a 24 years old from Soweto is a B.com Accounting Graduate from the University of Johannesburg.
Model under Rage Models , a Pageant Queen and currently a 2nd Runner up for the face of BEA’s 2020 and Miss Township South Africa 2020 Top 20 Finalist.
Chingono is a firm believer that a little kindness goes a long way. She is motivational speaker and a helper.”If you need help and I have the means to help, I will definitely help you. I believe in love and spreading love, the world needs it and could never get enough.” She expressed.
Her biggest concern is children. “We say children are the future but what are we doing in order to prepare them for that future? She sighed.
“I stand for equal opportunity, I stand for Love, Kindness and Growth. Just as Ronald Reagan said: On quote “There is no limit to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination and wonder.”
On the fun note, “I love to dance, I love Netball and music is my pick me up when Im down.” Said Chingono.
On quote “As Albert Einstein said:” The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving.”
Off quote “I would say what I have to offer and what I stand for in life makes me different from the rest of the BEA nominees,and definitely my height. I believe I’m the tallest.” She giggled.
Her greatest influence would be Dr Maya Angelou . Despite the difficulties and injustice she faced, she never gave up. She continued to advocate for women and civil rights. She motivated, she inspired, she is an Icon. There is definitely a lot to learn from her, what she stood for and her work. She expressed.
“I see myself rising to the occasion, becoming better and better everyday. Learning new things, spreading love, kindness and compassion. I see myself facing every challenge headstrong with no fear because we were not given the spirit of fear but of power, and of love, and of a soulmate”
“I have come across the challenges that includes but not limited to fear of the unknown, fear of what people will say and comparing myself. But I have accepted that we do not always have everything in control and people will always have something to say whether you do good or bad. I’ve learnt to lean more on the positive side of things and take life as it comes” . She said.
One item she cannot live without?? She said “That would be my Faith, Faith in God. Because to lose faith is to lose hope and when hope is lost, all is lost.” She expressed.
I’m very happy with the person I have become. Yes, there will always be room for improvement and learning. But right here, right now, I am happy. She said.
Her reaction about nomination and the outcomed she said “I was ecstatic when I found out that I was nominated for the Best Face of BEA, it meant that someone was watching my work. And they thought I’d be fit to be the face of their Brand. I was very happy.How do I feel about being a runner up? Well who doesn’t like winning,I was looking forward to that trophy but im content with being a runner up.It simply means it wasn’t my turn to win yet. Hopefully next year I will be nominated again . She concluded.
