Swakopmund-based toddler Xia Klein (3) won the title of first princess at the 2019 Miss Beauty Queen Namibia – Petite which took place in Windhoek recently.

Klein, who is also the community ambassador of Petite, was one of 18 children who took part in the competition where Jayde Kamutuka was crowned Miss Beauty Queen Namibia –Petite and also won the overall public choice award, while Grace Mootseng scooped second princess.

Klein won two beautiful crowns and a doll.

Speaking to this newspaper, Xia’s mother Ilanza expressed her delight at her daughter’s accomplishment.

“For me it is not about winning but to see how much she enjoys it. It truly builds character and self-confidence and creates a space where lasting friendships are made,” said Klein.

According to her, seeing her child enjoy the competition means more than winning it. “Preparing a three-year old for a competition of this magnitude is nerve wracking but my biggest wish for her is showcasing her talents as a young community ambassador and to enjoy it. She was, after all, my inspiration in establishing Azaria – Restoring Faith back in 2016.”

The next pageant takes place in Windhoek on 29 June, where Xia will be one of 46 girls taking part in Miss Snow White 2019. Thereafter, more than 130 contestants are expected to take part in the 2019 Toddler and Tween of the World competition in Klerksdorp, South Africa, in September.

Klein urged all ladies who want to make a difference in their community while rocking it in heels to join and like Namibia National Pageants Facebook page or send an email to [email protected] as they would like to teach children from a young age to help others and get involved in the community.

“If you want to see what it is all about and how we keep busy in our community, also like our page Azaria-Restoring Faith. Let’s restore faith together as a community. Together we can do more.”
