Splendid, vibrant, amazing and inspirational are not just enough words to describe the training session for contestants for the highly rated national pageant-Miss Warm Heart of Africa-according to the training coordinator, Dorothy Kamoto of RedRose.
As the contest for the debut model crown reaches the climax, we caught up with Dorothy at the outset of the training on Monday 12th December at Peacock Hotel in Lilongwe where the 5 day-sessions are conducted.
RedRose, the country’s leading modelling and event promoting agency, is conducting the session on behalf of Mnena Gaming who are hosting the event.
Dorothy, a model herself facilitating the training sessions with fellow RedRose International Trainer, Manaseh Chisiza, could not hold her satisfaction regarding the scope of the session.
“The sessions so far have been wonderful, the models are following the instructions with great ego. We are also engaging them in elementary tai-chi and yoga practices to enhance their focus while maintaining their shape.
“As you might be aware, this is an international rated beauty competitions, and it is inevitable that other models might find it quite stressful. Elementary tai chi and yoga lessons are therefore therapeutically driven to address the stress or anxiety in the girls,” explained Dorothy while revealing that all the fifteen models are camped at the hotel.
On his part, Manaseh said cheery, “the girls are responding positively. Malawians will have to miss the pageant on 16th of December at their own peril.
“We are using standards that international beauty pageants like Miss Universe use. This is first of its kind in Malawi, and we are the trendsetter in training models in highly rated codes of beauty pageants”.
The debutant Miss Warm Heart of Africa will see the crowned queen walk away with a BMW posh car.
The mode of choosing the winner is that the judges will have 50 percent say and the public will also have 50 percent say tallied through the public.
Mnena Gaming has partnered with RedRosethe country’s leading modelling and event promoting agency, to prepare the models for the training of the models.
