A Malawian is among 32 models from across the globe battling for the Miss Jetset title and $50 000 ( K39 million).
Apart from the monetary prize, Chiku Nkosi also stands a chance of walking in the footsteps of some of the big names in the entertainment industry by gracing Jetset Magazine’s cover.
While the competition donates some of the proceeds to a children’s cancer foundation in the US, Nkosi said she will contribute towards Malawi’s Covid-19 fight if she wins.
“Being Malawian myself and seeing how Malawi is struggling with the pandemic, my greatest achievement would be to win the competition with the hope of using the money to help in such a crisis,” she said.
In the semi-finals, Nkosi is among 32 women divided into four groups of eight each now asking for votes from the general public for the final spot.
“Four women advance to the finals from the four groups of eight,” she said.
Nkosi said the only way to guarantee a win is if she gets the needed votes.
“Don’t assume your vote does not count, it surely does,” said the model.
People can vote for Nkosi through the website miss.jetsetmag.com by clicking on her picture. Voting end on February 18.
The magazine annually runs the competition while raising money for the Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation, a children’s cancer charity.
“Help us support this life-changing initiative by voting for your favourite model in this year’s Miss Jetset competition. It’s a cause that’s close to our hearts,” reads the organisers website https://miss.jetsetmag.com/browse/2021.
