Remofilwe Innocentia Mandindi, a second-year law student at the Mafikeng Campus of the North-West University, has been chosen as one of the 16 finalists for the Miss Commonwealth South Africa pageant for the year 2015.

The Miss Commonwealth pageant is an annual event which aims at creating a platform for women of all ages to become charity and culture ambassadors within South Africa and the broader international community. Through this competition, women are empowered with knowledge to bring change to communities in need. The South African Queens are afforded the opportunity of competing in Miss Commonwealth International in London annually.

Mandindi has been involved in the Pink Drive. Pink Drive is an organisation that teaches women about breast cancer and assists those that cannot afford treatment. As required from the pageant, participants need to be involved in charitable causes and uphold the aims and objectives of the Commonwealth.

"I have been visiting several schools for awareness of breast cancer as part of the Pink Drive campaign," said Mandindi.

The finals for Miss Commonwealth South Africa will be held at Gold Reef City in Johannesburg on 12 September 2015.

To vote for Mandindi, you need to SMS her name to 35554. Each SMS costs R3.
