Embracing women in their difference sizes and shapes is one of the best things we have achieved in a while and Namibia keeps pushing such boundaries and norms. The Miss Plus Size Namibia is back again, same agenda but this time, different models, entertainment and a new approach too.
Founded by Margo Ruski in 2018 the pageant focuses mainly on the elimination of body-shaming on curvy women through the celebration of body diversity and the promotion of healthy lifestyles.
This year the organizers are going big and will also be giving back to two schools through donations.
“As the only pageant for curvy women in Namibia, MPSN takes great pride in its contribution and commitment in the development of our nation and as part of our commitment to socio and economic development, MSPN will be giving back to those that are less fortunate than us through donation,” said Margo.
The 2019 event was officially launched at Nimms restaurant in Windhoek with the 12 finalists announced. This year’s theme is women empowerment because it is, according to the founder imperative to educate and emancipate women.
