Multi-tasking is a trait not everyone possesses; Lebohang Modupe shows that it is possible to do anything you set your mind to, from being a student, to being part of the Campus Student Representative Council (CSRC), and a finalist for Miss Commonwealth South Africa!
The Second Year BCom CA student of the North-West University Vaal Triangle Campus (NWU Vaal) describes herself as “someone who believes that there is power in an educated society”, and sees herself as an activist of change and a young woman driven by passion; which fits in perfectly with the Miss Commonwealth SA pageant which empowers women “with the knowledge to bring about change to communities in need”.
A little more about Lebohang
Lebohang can definitely use her life experiences to both empower and motivate young ladies to be all that they can be. Not only is she a full time student, but has kept herself busy with leadership responsibilities, as the previous Academics AND Arts & Culture Officer of the Longfellow residence, with this year being one of the CSRC for the Vaal Campus. But her list of accomplishments doesn’t end there! Lebohang was also crowned Miss Longfellow 2015/2016, was a Top Ten finalist the Clicks Cover Girl, and of course, is now a finalist for Miss Commonwealth SA.
Her motto in life is We Rise By Lifting Others, and plans to do just that on the road to Miss Commonwealth SA 2016. Lebohang plans to do this through instilling a sense of self-branding, advising on health awareness and the importance of education with teens, while “upholding the name of my University and its values”.
Why Miss Commonwealth SA? Lebohang explains that the pageants visions were in line with her own goals in life.
“Miss Commonwealth is a pageant that aims at empowering individuals within communities to become the best versions of themselves.It is such an honour to be a part of such a pageant that resonates with my passion”.

Miss Commonwealth SA Pageant
The main focus of the pageant is the internal and external development of young women in South Africa, and is a platform for women to become charity ambassadors, touching lives and making a difference. Once crowned, the title holders will be involved in charitable causes and uphold the aims and objectives of the Commonwealth, from racial harmony, poverty eradication and social cohesion.
“It is our duty, as a community, to assist young women by creating opportunities for them and also to give them space to be role models that are committed to serve the needs within society” explains National Director of Miss Commonwealth SA, Ngawethu Ka-Siphiwo.
