NWU Mafikeng Campus student is a semi-finalist for Miss Commonwealth

Innocencia Mandidi, a second-year law student, is one of the North-West University's (NWU) Mafikeng Campus’ brightest rising stars. Driven by a combination of talent, hard work and enthusiasm, she has recently made it to the top 30 semi-finalists of the Miss Commonwealth South Africa Pageant.

The pageant is an annual event to search for contestants for the Miss Teen Commonwealth SA, Miss Commonwealth SA and Mrs Commonwealth SA. The title holders will then be afforded an opportunity to compete for Miss Commonwealth International in London. The winners are expected to use their titles to help communities in need.

 As a semi-finalist, Innocencia is now a brand ambassador and responsible for promoting the Miss Commonwealth brand and taking it to the next level by being a notable role model.

Few young ladies on campus can captivate on a number of different fronts such as beauty and brains, and do it with a dash of mystery like Innocencia. There seems to be no end to her talents in her lifestyle and she’s backing it all up with some good academic background. She first came under the spotlight in December 2013 when her name was the buzzword in the Dr Ruth Mompati District Municipality. This came after she was announced one of the provincial top achievers and was awarded a bursary. In 2014, she also received a Merit Bursary from the Mafikeng Campus. 

Innocencia is also an aerobics coach, cheerleader and was an ambassador for the Varsity Football Cup as well as one of the top five finalists of Miss NWU Mafikeng Campus in 2014.

Innocencia chosen charity throughout her journey of Miss Commonwealth is the Pink Drive, a charity she would support for the Miss Commonwealth pageant as she wants to assist in improving breast cancer awareness. Currently she is expected to be raising funds for the Pink Drive throughout her journey to the crown.
