Miss Continents 2017, Andeline Wieland (25), has been shortlisted as one of the semi-finalists for the Miss Supranational Namibia pageant.

The competition seeks to identify a naturally beautiful, charismatic, humble, kind, and grounded woman with strong aspirations and the desire to make an impact on the world. Furthermore, the winner will be the spokesperson for women across Namibia and the world.

She will also be expected to promote tourism and encourage partners to invest in Namibia and the Miss Supranational brand.

“Since being crowned first runner up at Miss Namibia in 2016 and then going on to win Miss Continents 2017 in Las Vegas, I had no other pageant system I could compete in,” Wieland says of her decision to participate in this event.

Having retired from pageantry at the tender age of 23, Wieland turned to coaching and mentoring aspiring pageant contestants.

However, the introduction of Miss Supranational Namibia gives her another chance to compete in an event filled with many character building qualities.

“I am going to do my best. Namibia is filled with beautiful women, so I am excited about getting to know them along the way,” she said.

Preparations

Wieland has already begun preparing for the pageant by adjusting her wardrobe through local designers and shops. She is also following a training programme with Stefan van der Merwe of Trinity Fitness to ensure she is in top shape for the event.

If she wins the crown, she intends to support several charites. However, “I will continue with my own dress rental charity organisation, ‘The Snow White Project’, which I established in 2012. Due to many needs created by the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, I am also keen to collaborate with and help feeding programmes around the country.”

The bubbly Wieland is also in the process of launching an exciting new project for small scale businesses and entrepreneurs.
She expressed the hope that Namibians will guard their mouths before judging the contestants solely on photos.

“I have so much respect for all these women that are brave enough to put themselves out there to face public scrutiny to serve our nation,” she said.

The other semi-finalists are Nuukelo Malima, Chanique Rabe, Zenobia Eises, Ashleigh Kleintjies, Rejoice Namupala, Zandri Scholtz, Leone van Jaarsveld, Johanna Nashandi, Koviao Kapose Katjerungu, Mathilde Daniel, Monique Smith and Shasmida Eises.

The event takes place on 3 October, with the organisers saying they will host it online should the current lockdown regulations still apply by this date. If the regulations are lifted, the event will take place at Droomboss, which is situated on the outskirts of Windhoek.
Yana Haenisch represented Namibia in Poland at the Miss Supranational Pageant 2019, where she was crowned runner-up.
