Andeline Wieland offers mentorship to Miss Namibia contestants

Miss Continents 2017, Andeline Wieland recently offered herself to help beauty contestants who aspire to participate at the 2022 Miss Namibia pageant.

Wieland, who has many years of pageantry experience under her belt, took to social media posting about her availability to coach beauty pageant hopefuls.

“I can’t believe pageant season is on us again! I’m so excited to be in a new position this time and cheering on all the amazing people putting themselves out there.”

“If you need help with coaching, fashion advice, hair and makeup or headshots please send me a message.  Let’s strive for greatness,” she posted on Instagram.

The Swakopmund-raised model is not new to Miss Namibia, having been the first runner-up in the 2016 competition.

More recently, she also added to her impressive pageant accolades for being awarded the second runner up for Miss Supranational Namibia 2020. Soon after that, she promoted to first runner up after Chanique Rabe was crowned the 2020 Miss Supranational International.

Andeline Wieland has over the years been a good sport even towards her competitors. She openly cheered her friend Chelsi Shikongo during the latter’s participation at the 70th Miss Universe held in Israel last year.

Being an advocate for self-love and acceptance, Wieland has always stood by her fellow contestants by slamming social media bullies who body shame contestants.

She was also the first to congratulate, Chelsi Shikongo after the coronation ceremony of Miss Namibia 2020, where she spoke about some of the stereotypes models go through.

“Even though I didn’t win the crown my cause certainly did! Chelsi Shikongo, your win is my win.”

“Advocating for self-love, body neutrality, eating for your health and listening to your body are a cause both you and I stood for on this journey.”

“We may have been on opposite sides of the fight: you dealing with food intolerance and being ridiculed for being thin by society or too big by the fashion industry, and me, following a quest without supplements and bad eating habits and disorders and being ridiculed for my size 10 body being too big for what I do too!” Wieland posted on Instagram.

Despite Shikongo not reaching the Top 16 of the Miss Universe contest, the Walvis Bay-based model did the country proud and has shown integrity throughout her reign as she has fought for good causes like mental health awareness, among others.

The search for Miss Namibia 2022 is currently on after registration for the pageant was opened.

Entry forms for the prestigious pageant are available on the Miss Namibia and NBC websites, which are www.missnamibia.org and www.nbc.na

With 19 April being the closing date, submissions can be sent via e-mail to missnamibiapageant@gmail.com.
