Thank you for the congratulations! It is indeed an honor and a privilege to have been selected as a finalist for the Haut Monde Mrs India Worldwide beauty pageant. Representing South Africa on such a prestigious platform fills me with immense pride and  It’s an opportunity to not only showcase the strength, grace, and multifaceted nature of womanhood but also to bring attention to the diverse and vibrant culture of South Africa on a global stage. I’m excited to use this platform to inspire and uplift women worldwide, and I’m looking forward to the journey ahead.

 

2.- You’vehad an impressive career as an attorney, receiving accolades such as the Women in IP Award and the Top IP Leader Award. How do you manage to balance your professional commitments with your role as a mother and wife?

Balancing my professional commitments as an attorney with my roles as a  mother and wife has been both challenging and rewarding. Effective time  management, clear communication, and a strong support system are crucial  in maintaining this balance. I prioritize tasks and manage my time efficiently, ensuring I fulfill both my professional responsibilities and family obligations. Clear communication with my family and colleagues helps establish realistic  expectations and find solutions that benefit everyone. Additionally, having a  supportive spouse and family who understand the demands of my career is  essential. We work together as a team to meet our family’s needs and thrive  in our respective roles.

Having my mother as my biggest supporter has been invaluable. Her  unwavering belief in my abilities and unconditional support have guided me  through the challenges of balancing work and family. Her wisdom, guidance,  and practical assistance enable me to pursue my career aspirations while  prioritizing my family. Her presence reinforces the importance of family  support in achieving goals and maintaining a healthy work-life balance. I am  deeply grateful for her love and encouragement, which motivate me to excel  in all aspects of my life.

 

 

3.- Whatinspired you to participate in the Haut Monde Mrs India Worldwide pageant, and what message do you hope to convey through your participation?

Participating in the Haut Monde Mrs India Worldwide pageant was inspired by my desire to celebrate the multifaceted nature of womanhood and showcase the strength and grace of married Indian women on a global stage. Through my participation, I hope to convey a message of empowerment, resilience, and inclusivity. I aim to inspire women worldwide to embrace their identities, pursue their dreams with determination, and shatter stereotypes about married women. By advocating for balance, collaboration, and self-empowerment, I aspire to encourage women to break free from societal norms and redefine success on their own terms. My participation is a testament to the power of women supporting women and the limitless potential that lies within each of us.

 

4.- As a brand ambassador for Warriors with a Purpose, you advocate for cancer awareness and period Can you tell us more about your involvement in these causes and why they are important to you?

My involvement with Warriors with a Purpose as a brand ambassador stems from my deep commitment to raising awareness about two critical issues: cancer and period poverty. These causes are profoundly significant to me because they directly impact the well-being and dignity of individuals within our communities.

Cancer awareness holds personal significance as I’ve witnessed the devastating effects it can have on individuals and families. By advocating for early detection, access to treatment, and ongoing support, I aim to empower individuals affected by cancer and their loved ones. Through education and support initiatives, we strive to reduce the stigma surrounding cancer and  ensure that those battling the disease feel supported and empowered.

Period poverty, on the other hand, is a silent crisis affecting many women  and girls globally. The lack of access to menstrual hygiene products can  hinder education, employment, and overall well-being. As an advocate, I  work to break down the barriers to menstrual health by promoting access to  affordable and sustainable menstrual products, advocating for policy change, and fostering open dialogue to eradicate the stigma associated with  menstruation.

Both cancer awareness and combating period poverty are essential pillars of  my advocacy because they address fundamental issues of health, dignity, and equality. By raising awareness, fostering collaboration, and driving tangible  change, I strive to make a meaningful impact in these critical areas and  contribute to a world where everyone has the opportunity to live healthy,  dignified lives.

 

 

5.- Your journey is often described as a beacon of empowerment and  Can you share with us some of the challenges you’ve faced along the way and how you overcame them?

My journey has been marked by numerous challenges that have tested my  resilience and determination. Following the birth of my first child, I faced  life-threatening complications and a severe elbow injury from a serious  accident. These experiences prompted me to reassess my life and career  path.

Despite facing setbacks and having to fight tooth and nail to advance in my career, I remained steadfast in my pursuit of success. I resigned from my corporate job, which led to a year without work due to a restraint of trade obligation. However, I used this time wisely, meticulously planning and preparing for the future.

Armed with my past experiences, I set out to empower women and make a difference in their lives. My perseverance eventually paid off when a client nominated me for the Influential Woman of the Year Award. Inspired by this recognition, I became dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs, mentoring women, and uplifting others through my story.

I firmly believe that women shouldn’t have to compromise their identities or sacrifice motherhood to achieve success. My journey is a testament to the idea that with determination and resilience, one can overcome obstacles and thrive in both personal and professional spheres. I strive to motivate others to embrace their womanhood and pursue their dreams without compromising their true selves.

 

 

 

6.- Being recognized as one of the Top25 Exceptional Women in Trademarks must have been a significant  How do you feel about being a role model for women in your field?

Being recognized as one of the Top 25 Exceptional Women in Trademarks is  indeed a significant honor, and I am deeply grateful for the acknowledgment  of my contributions to the field. As a woman in the legal profession, I feel a  profound sense of responsibility to serve as a role model for other women  aspiring to succeed in this field.

It is incredibly humbling to be seen as a role model for women in  trademarks, and I am committed to using this platform to inspire and empower others. I hope to demonstrate that with hard work, perseverance, and dedication, women can excel in traditionally male-dominated industries like law and trademarks.

My aim is to mentor and support other women in their professional journeys, sharing my experiences and insights to help them navigate the challenges and obstacles they may face. By fostering a supportive and inclusive environment, I hope to contribute to the continued advancement and empowerment of women in trademarks and beyond.

 

7.- Your advocacy focuses on collaboration over competition. How do you believe women can better support each other in their personal and professional endeavors?

To foster a culture of collaboration over competition among women in their personal and professional endeavors, I believe in the following strategies:

  • Celebrate Each Other’s Successes: Instead of feeling threatened by another woman’s success, celebrate it wholeheartedly. Recognize and acknowledge the achievements of fellow women, whether it’s a promotion, a project completion, or a personal milestone. By lifting each other up, we create a supportive and empowering environment where everyone can thrive.
  • Offer Mentorship and Support: Extend a helping hand to other women by offering mentorship, guidance, and support. Share your knowledge, experiences, and insights to help other women navigate challenges and overcome obstacles in their personal and professional lives. By paying it forward, we empower the next generation of women leaders and create a cycle of support and empowerment.
  • Advocate for Each Other: Use your voice and influence to advocate for other women in your personal and professional networks. Amplify their  voices, promote their ideas and initiatives, and advocate for their  inclusion and recognition. By standing together in solidarity, we can  address systemic barriers and create more equitable opportunities for all  
  • Create Collaborative Spaces: Foster collaborative spaces where women can come together to share ideas, collaborate on projects, and support  each other’s growth and development. Whether it’s through networking  events, affinity groups, or online communities, creating opportunities for  connection and collaboration strengthens the bonds among women and  fosters a sense of community and belonging.
  • Challenge Stereotypes and Biases: Challenge stereotypes and biases that pit women against each other and perpetuate a scarcity mindset. Reframe  competition as collaboration and recognize that we are stronger together  than apart. By challenging outdated narratives and promoting a culture of  support and solidarity, we can create a more inclusive and empowering  environment for all women.

Overall, by embracing collaboration over competition, women can better  support each other in their personal and professional endeavors, creating a  more equitable, inclusive, and empowering world for all.

 

 

8.- Withthe press conference and grand finale of the beauty pageant approaching, what preparations are you undertaking, both mentally and physically, for these events?

As the press conference and grand finale of the beauty pageant approach, I am undertaking comprehensive preparations both mentally and physically to ensure that I am ready for these events.

Mentally, I am focusing on maintaining a positive mindset and visualizing success. I am practicing mindfulness techniques to stay calm under pressure and manage any nerves or anxiety that may arise. Additionally, I am reflecting on my journey, reminding myself of my strengths, and drawing inspiration from my past achievements to fuel my confidence.

Physically, I am prioritizing self-care and well-being. I am following a healthy diet and exercise routine to ensure that I am in peak physical condition for the events. I am also investing time in skincare, grooming, and styling to present my best self on stage.

Furthermore, I am rehearsing my talent piece and possible answers to questions to be asked, refining my posture and body language, and practicing poise and grace to make a strong impression during the press conference and grand finale.

Overall, I am approaching these events with determination, focus, and a commitment to showcasing the strength, grace, and multifaceted nature of womanhood.

 

9.- Your Instagram bio says, “The only person I am in competition with is ” Can you elaborate on what this means to you and how it influences your approach to life?

To me, the statement “The only person I am in competition with is myself”  embodies a mindset of continuous self-improvement and personal growth. It  reflects my belief that the most significant progress we can make in life is by  challenging ourselves to become better versions of who we were yesterday,  rather than comparing ourselves to others.

This mindset influences my approach to life in several ways. Firstly, it  encourages self-reflection and introspection. Instead of focusing on external  benchmarks or the achievements of others, I prioritize evaluating my own  progress and setting personal goals based on my own values and aspirations. Secondly, it fosters a sense of accountability and responsibility for my own  actions and decisions. By recognizing that I am ultimately competing against  my own potential, I am motivated to take ownership of my choices and  actively work towards realizing my ambitions.

Moreover, this mindset promotes resilience and perseverance in the face of  challenges. Rather than being discouraged by setbacks or obstacles, I see  them as opportunities for growth and learning. I embrace challenges as a  chance to push my boundaries and exceed my own expectations.

Overall, adopting a mindset of self-competition empowers me to strive for  excellence in all aspects of my life, while also cultivating gratitude, self- compassion, and a sense of fulfillment along the way. It’s a journey of self- discovery and self-mastery that allows me to continually evolve and thrive as an individual.

 

 

10.- How do you think participating in the beauty pageant aligns with your mission to empower women and challenge stereotypes?

Participating in the beauty pageant aligns perfectly with my mission to empower women and challenge stereotypes in several ways:

  • Representation: By representing South Africa in the beauty pageant, I am showcasing the diversity and strength of women from my country on an international platform. This helps challenge narrow beauty standards and promotes inclusivity by celebrating different cultures, backgrounds, and body types.
  • Redefining Success: My participation in the beauty pageant sends a powerful message that success is not limited to traditional career paths or achievements. I aim to demonstrate that women can be multifaceted individuals, embracing motherhood, marriage, and professional aspirations while pursuing their dreams with determination and grace.
  • Breaking Barriers: As a contestant, I challenge stereotypes about married women and mothers, showing that they can be ambitious, confident, and empowered individuals. By balancing my roles as a wife, mother, and professional, I aim to inspire other women to pursue their passionswithout limitations or societal expectations holding them back.
  • Advocating for Empowerment: Throughout my journey in the beauty pageant, I use my platform to advocate for women’s empowerment, self- confidence, and self-acceptance. I strive to uplift and support other women, fostering a culture of collaboration and mutual respect rather than competition or judgment.

Overall, my participation in the beauty pageant is an extension of my commitment to empowering women and challenging stereotypes. It allows  me to amplify my message of resilience, inclusivity, and self-empowerment  on a global scale, inspiring women worldwide to embrace their unique  identities and pursue their dreams unapologetically.

 

11.- You’ve mentioned that you wish to be a stellar example for your children and  How do you balance your aspirations with being a role model for your family?

Balancing my aspirations with being a role model for my family involves  prioritizing and integrating my personal and professional goals in a way that  aligns with my values and responsibilities as a mother and wife.

First and foremost, I strive to lead by example, demonstrating the  importance of hard work, perseverance, and integrity in achieving one’s  goals. I involve my children in my journey, sharing with them the joys and  challenges of pursuing my passions while also emphasizing the value of  balancing work and family life.

Communication is key in maintaining this balance. I openly discuss my  aspirations and commitments with my family, ensuring that they feel  supported and included in my endeavors. By setting clear expectations and  boundaries, I create space for both my family and my career to thrive.

Flexibility is also essential. I recognize that there will be times when my  family needs me more, and I adjust my schedule and priorities accordingly.  Likewise, there are times when I need to focus on my professional goals, and  my family understands and supports me in these endeavors.

Ultimately, being a role model for my family means finding harmony between my personal and professional aspirations, while also prioritizing the well-being and happiness of my loved ones. It’s about leading with love, empathy, and resilience, and showing my children that it’s possible to pursue your dreams while remaining grounded in family values and priorities.

 

 

12.- What advice would you give to women who are hesitant to pursue their dreams due to societal expectations or personal doubts?

To women who are hesitant to pursue their dreams due to societal expectations or personal doubts, I offer the following advice:

  • Believe in Yourself: Trust in your abilities and believe that you arecapable of achieving your dreams. Recognize your worth and the unique talents and strengths that you bring to the table.

Above all, remember that your dreams are valid, and you are worthy of  pursuing them. Don’t let fear or self-doubt hold you back from living a  fulfilling and purposeful life. You have the strength, courage, and resilience  to achieve anything you set your mind to. Believe in yourself and take the  first step towards making your dreams a reality.

 

13.- Whatare your plans beyond the beauty pageant? Do you have any upcoming projects or initiatives you’d like to share with your audience?

Beyond the beauty pageant, I am excited to continue my journey of  empowerment and advocacy for women’s rights and social causes. While  specific plans may evolve, I am committed to using my platform to make a positive impact in my community and beyond.

18.- Could you share a particularly memorable moment from your career or advocacy work that has deeply impacted you?

One particularly memorable moment from my career and advocacy work  that has deeply impacted me occurred when I received the Influential  Woman of the Year Award. This recognition was not just a personal  achievement but a validation of my dedication to empowering women and challenging stereotypes.

The moment I was announced as the recipient of the award, I felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude and validation for the work I had been doing. It reinforced my belief in the power of advocacy and the importance of using my platform to make a positive impact in the lives of others.

This memorable moment has fueled my determination to keep pushing boundaries, challenging stereotypes, and advocating for positive change. It serves as a constant reminder of the power of resilience, determination, and advocacy in shaping a more equitable and inclusive society.

 

 

19.- Inyour opinion, what are some of the most pressing issues facing women today, and how do you believe we can address them collectively as a society?

In my opinion, some of the most pressing issues facing women today include:

  • Gender Inequality: Women continue to face systemic barriers to equal opportunities in various aspects of life, including education, employment, healthcare, and political representation.
  • Violence Against Women: Gender-based violence, including domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking, remains a pervasive and  devastating issue affecting women worldwide.
  • Lack of Reproductive Rights: Women’s reproductive rights, including access to healthcare services, contraception, and safe abortion, are under  threat in many parts of the world, limiting women’s autonomy and  decision-making regarding their bodies and health.
  • Economic Empowerment: Women often face unequal access to economic opportunities, including lower wages, limited access to credit and  financing, and barriers to entrepreneurship and leadership positions.
  • Intersectional Discrimination: Women from marginalized communities, including women of color, women with disabilities, and indigenous  women, face compounded discrimination and barriers to equality and  

Addressing these pressing issues collectively as a society requires a multi- faceted approach:

  • Legal and Policy Reform: Governments and policymakers must enact and enforce laws and policies that promote gender equality, protect women’s  rights, and address systemic discrimination and violence against women.
  • Education and Awareness: Education and awareness campaigns are essential to challenge stereotypes, promote gender equality, and  empower women and girls to assert their rights and pursue their
  • Economic Empowerment: Efforts to promote women’s economic empowerment, including access to education, vocational training, equal pay, and support for entrepreneurship and leadership, are crucial for advancing gender equality and reducing poverty and inequality.
  • Support Services: Access to support services, including healthcare, counseling, legal aid, and shelters for survivors of gender-based violence,is essential for protecting and empowering women and girls.
  • Intersectional Approaches: Addressing the intersecting forms of discrimination and disadvantage faced by women from marginalized communities requires intersectional approaches that recognize and address the unique challenges and barriers they face.
  • Engaging Men and Boys: Promoting gender equality requires the active involvement and support of men and boys as allies and advocates for change. Engaging men and boys in efforts to challenge harmful gender norms and promote positive masculinity is essential for building more equitable and inclusive societies.

By collectively addressing these pressing issues and working together to promote gender equality and women’s rights, we can create a more just, equitable, and inclusive world for all.

 

 

20.- Looking back at your journey, what is one piece of advice you would give to your younger self, knowing what you know now?

Looking back at my journey, if I could offer one piece of advice to my younger  self, it would be to trust in your own worth and believe in your abilities. Embrace your uniqueness, strengths, and passions wholeheartedly, and don’t let fear or  self-doubt hold you back from pursuing your dreams.

Know that setbacks and challenges are inevitable, but they are also opportunities for growth and learning. Embrace failure as a natural part of the journey and use  it as fuel to propel yourself forward, rather than allowing it to deter you from  your path.

Remember to prioritize self-care and well-being amidst your ambitions. Take  time to nurture your physical, emotional, and mental health, and don’t  underestimate the power of rest, reflection, and self-compassion in fueling your  success and happiness.

Above all, trust in your journey and have faith in yourself. You are capable of  achieving anything you set your mind to, and your journey is uniquely yours.  Embrace the twists and turns, celebrate your victories, and never lose sight of  the incredible potential that lies within you.
