KARABO GIVES US AN INSIGHT INTO HER LIFE AS A GO GETTER.
For some people, being a PK (Pastor’s Kid) and living as a model can be a bit challenging. How is that to you?
I do not find it a challeng.in fact, I see it as a blessing because my daddy guides me as a father and a spiritual father at the same time. I manage it the exact same way a normal kid respects his/her father. He is a pastor, but still a father like any other loving father the only difference is that he has the title Pastor.
You recently participated in Polokwane Top model competition. How has that impacted your modelling?
It's was an exquisite journey. It has phenomenally transformed me into someone different and it has exceptionally lifted my confidence. I feel that it has made my modelling career a lot brighter because I definitely learned things I that never thought I was capable of, things like being outspoken etc. In this issue, we are prodigiously enthused by a young girl whose passion lies at following her dreams with great desire and making sure that self-integrity stays positive. Karabo Ramothwala is a 17 year old from Bolobedu’s own village called “Mawa-Block 12” in Limpopo Province. With her love for modelling and beauty as a whole, Karabo has participated in numerous beauty pageants where she was crowned for different categories. She has recently finished her journey in the search for Polokwane’s Top model which took place on the 8th April (last month). The 17 year old opens up to Empowered about her passion and life.
What drives you into making sure that you achieve your goals?
I live by the quote; "The man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder-a waif, a nothing, a no man" by Tomas Carlyle. Therefore, I am basically driven by God who created me for a purpose which I believe is also to make a difference in people's lives. The fact that achieving my goals can make a difference in somebody's life gives me tons of courage, because there is nothing as pleasing as knowing that you have made somebody's life a lot better than it was before.
You are a model and have participated in various competitions, what is your best memory throughout your modelling journey?
My Best memory will always be having an opportunity to meet and understand people different from me. It actually made me realize how the saying; “modelling is only for pretty and confident people" is not true, because I myself gained confidence through modelling.
Many young individuals have given up on their dreams. What advice can you give to them?
Not winning a pageant or making it into a certain modelling category does not mean that you are less pretty than any of the other girls who have made it. In life you can't always expect to be the best because one thing is for sure and that is that you are not perfect and in Oder to value being the best you will have to understand the meaning on being nothing at all. Life is about winning and losing that is what makes it interesting. One thing I have learned from Mr R.J Ramothwala is that persistence and patience are the major keys to achieving your goals.
