Miss Namibia 2009 winner Happie Ntelamo- Matswetu has provided hope for many young women from the Zambezi region who least dreamed of one day wearing the national crown or at least achieving their life goals.
It was a momentous win considering the fact that she is the only woman from Katima Mulilo to win the Miss Namibia title since its formation in 1980.
Life couldn’t be better for Happie who is also a fashion designer. In 2011, after completing law education, she started working at a local law firm and the year afterwards she was the host of Good Morning Namibia. Matswetu then became the ambassador for the Katima Mulilo Mayor Civic Awards in 2013.
