GABORONE, BOTSWANA — This month (May 2019) saw the Little Miss Princess of the World pageant – the only parade in Botswana which gives Botswana children a platform to showcase their talents at an international stage crown yet another queen to represent Botswana at the international sphere.
The pageant, founded in 2015 aims to promote culture, tourism, love and friendship amongst children of different nationalities. Furthermore, it also promotes International Relations thus the woman behind the steering wheel deserves recognition. Her name is Tebbie Lebanna and #BotswanaUnplugged recently had a chat with her.
“We have competed three (3) times internationally
and we have so far brought seven (7) international crowns to our home soil,
which is a clear indication that we are doing extremely well both nationally
and internationally. In 2015, Wame Baleseng kick started the international race
where she became 2nd runner up after South Africa in Georgia – a country at the intersection of Europe and Asia, among our
achievements”. She’s this week’s #CelebrityCrush.
