Newly crowned Miss High School North shares plans

Klaudia Haundjodjo from Gabriel Taapopi Secondary School, who won the eighth edition of Miss High School North, hosted at the Ekamuti Guest House on 20 December, says she has big plans for the year.

Haundjodjo says the event has provided her with a sense of self-confidence and self-worth she will always carry with her.

“This has also given me the opportunity to represent my school and community on a bigger platform, as I always wanted to motivate young girls to never stop believing in themselves and to always follow their dreams,” she says.

Haundjodjo says she plans to advocate “empowering women to take up space in society”.

“I believe there’s nothing more important than taking up space in society – regardless of your background.”

She says she plans to engage with various schools in the north, where she will be addressing the importance of education.

“This title comes with a sense of responsibility and values, and I must continue to uphold the values and qualities that earned me the title in the first place.

“I will also be donating pads to girls at various schools,” she says.

Haundjodjo says she will also consider boys’ mental health and try to create a non-judgemental space in which they could express themselves freely.

“I will also initiate a campaign to create awareness of ways to reduce waste,” she says.
