Andeline Wieland; Contestant; “I have become wiser…”


Swakopmund • [email protected]

First runner-up in Miss Namibia 2016 and Miss Continents 2017, Andeline Wieland (25) announced that she will take part in Miss Namibia 2021.

Wieland, who was the second runner-up at last year’s Miss Supranational pageant, broke the news on her official page on Facebook.

“I may be 25 but I am far from being old, far from being engaged and so in love with what I have managed to accomplish through my work with pageants.

“It's not for everyone, heck even I challenge the stereotype, but I have grown and developed so much as a woman and entrepreneur because of it.

“I have lost more pageants than I've won and I've gained life-long friends and family in the process,” she said.

She posted two head shots of herself as well. The first was taken ten years ago when she took part in her first national pageant, while the second was taken recently.

“This year marks ten years of competing in national pageants and I can't help but say I am completely in love with it!

“So basically, this is just me saying I have entered Miss Namibia 2021 - five years after competing in 2016 and I am both nervous and super excited!

“I have become wiser, a little less concerned about what others think, and a lot more confident in my own abilities. I never want to be old one day and regret not having had the guts to do it again, so here we are, jumping into the fog!” said the bubbly redhead.

Miss Namibia recently announced that they will extend the age limit for participants to 28 years. In previous years, there was an age restriction of 24 for contestants.

Wieland won her first beauty pageant aged 16 when she was crowned Miss Teen Namibia in 2012. By doing so, she broke stereotypes that beauty queens need to be slender to have a chance of winning a pageant.
