Cassia Prepares for Miss Teen Continents

“Modelling is not as easy as it looks” says a beaming Cassia. “The wins may be amazing but it requires a lot of effort and determination.”
Cassia Sharpley is the first runner-up of the 2017 Miss Teen Namibia and is currently preparing herself for Miss Teen Continents Pageant which is expected to take place during June in Las Vegas.
In preparing herself for the Pageant, Cassia has so far had the honour to be part of a Beauty and Fashion lifestyle where she had the opportunity to work on her walk as a means of perfecting it before the big day.
Cassia stumbled onto modelling by chance as she is really a dancer. In 2014, she participated in the World Championship for Performing Arts in 2014 for the dancing division.
During the Championships a group of judges approached her and asked her why she was not a part of the modelling division because she had the looks and the height for it.
“When I returned home I decided to take a year of from school in 2015 to focus solely on my dancing and modelling.”
In 2016 she took part in the World Championship of Performing Arts once again for both dancing and modelling. By now, Cassia was a true professional and won in the modelling division of the Championship.
Determined to show the world what she has to offer, Cassia plans on visiting schools around Namibia to advocate against bullying.
“I am a victim of bullying myself – it happened to me during my years at school and I know how damaging it can be. I have taken it upon myself as Miss Teen Namibia to give back to the less fortunate. Last year I visited 7de Laan where I supplied the underprivileged with basic necessities”.
“One needs to be emotionally stable and you have to have the courage to speak up for yourself when you feel something is not right then do so or people will take advantage of you”.
Apart from taking part in Miss Teen Continent this year, Cassia plans on focusing on her athletics and ballet.
“I’m a girl of many talents, athletics, ballet and music are just some of the amazing gifts I have been blessed with. After Miss Teen Continent I’ll be working on them.”
2018 looks promising for Cassia as she is determined to excel in all areas of her life. It is evident that she is certainly a force to be reckoned with.
