A go getter with passion to inspire

 

Miss Eagle’s South Africa contestant, Maremane Dikgale stimulates passion in fulfilling girls’ dreams. The young go-getter was born in Johannesburg and later on relocated to Limpopo to do her high school till 2014. She is currently doing her third year in BA in Strategic communication at the University of Johannesburg.

She started her modelling career at the age of 15 and later on stopped when she was doing her grade 12 so she could focus on her studies. Now that Maremane is in Johannesburg, she believes that things seem to be a bit easier as the place is the hub of most activities for modelling. “When I came to Johannesburg, I was able to compile my own portfolio, through the help of a friend, which helped me establish my brand. The best thing about modelling for me is that I got to be a representative to many girls who feel they are not able to do things because of their background or their bodies”, she says.

Maremane believes that what people say about you doesn’t matter, as long as it is not what defines you. “It doesn’t matter what people say. You can use what you have to also inspire people in your field or those who desire to be just like you’, she added. This journey that the ambitious lady decided to take did not only help her in inspiring people, but also inspired her in return. She continuously meets people in her field who encourage her in her work and help improve the person that she is.

What sets Maremane apart is her African brand and her compassionate heart she has towards people. “Modelling to me is not only about the fame and being on the cover of a magazine but rather is about inspiring people and portraying a message and showing people that you can achieve whatsoever you desire to achieve regardless of your background, your age group or race.”

She continues to remind girls to rise above society’s standards and beliefs in all that she does especially through modelling. “Do not let people dictate your life or tell you what you cannot do because you can do anything. You are the author of your own life. Be in control of your own life, accept yourself and you will eventually be confident in the person you are and about your future.”
