TYRA AND SONIA
She is the new Miss Teen Swaziland director. Last weekend she hosted stunning Miss Teen Swaziland beauty pageant, which saw a number of parents of the contestants and personalities attending the outdoor set up affair.
So today, we’ve decided to unveil the lady behind Miss Teen SD Sonia Silver.
Sonia is a person of extreme passion and possess the ability of having an open mind while being hard working in nature.
“Accompanied by my drive for perfection and my willingness to learn sets me out as one whom seeks for continuous improvement in every task I undertake and remain dedicated irrespective of the level of difficulty experienced.
This level of focus is set to improve my professional skill sets in order to enable me to grow in the fields of fashion, lifestyle and beauty,” she tells L& E.
In preparation for Miss Teen, she envisioned the standard, traits and attributes of what the winning girl should have as this would be critical in highlighting the overall vision of the beauty pageant.
“I was looking for the opportunity of hosting a pageant that entitled 14 top contestants from around the country and having them judged by a broad yet experienced judging panel along with an element of public participation via the online voting line in order to ensure that the winner was truly fit and deserving of the crown.
Pageants are in general designed to contribute positively to the development of the contestants so it would be a based on a personal view and a frame of reference based on previous pageant performances and outcomes that one has been exposed to.
As witnessed with the Miss Teen SD 2017 pageant; it started contributing positively through pre-activities like the PSI “dreams on wheels” girl child reproduction awareness programme, Dunkylane
Basket ball Academy “catering and first aid support” programme, boot-camp, team-building, talent challenge, entrepreneurship expose´ leading to the development of leadership, social outreach, interpersonal, team work, public speaking skills thus building their confidence, character, and prospective.”
“Continuous improvement is standard in my nature thus the Miss Teen SD 2018 pageant will have to cater for a larger audience, have improved brand awareness, improved entertainment value, improved deco, improved food and most importantly greatly improve the lives of the top contestants partaking in the pageant. Marketing is a key element to the success of any pageant thus Miss Teen 2018 shall be focused on ensuring that our marketing strategy is developed this year and implemented as early as possible in order to being effect on the masses.
I would like to build the Miss Teen SD pageant into a sustainable programme in order to further support the top contestants entering each respective year as well as support its future social outreach programmes. The pageant will further ensure that we build winners that are empowered to compete and win at all international events.
