She is a star on the rise and a businesswoman in the making.

Former Miss South Africa 2016 contestant Rambi Sechoaro is making her mark as a brand and refuses to ride on her older sisters’ [Bonang Matheba] fame: “I want to build my own brand and I never want to get jobs because of my half sister, I do however look up to her and respect her work ethic,” said Rambi.

Before entering Miss South Africa 2016, this 22 year old was already highly active doing charity work as well as getting local and international modeling engagements through her agency, Ice Models while juggling her Accounting Science studies at Unisa.

Rambi explains how she shares a passion for the entertainment industry just like her sister. “My sister gave me a few tips on having a thick skin in order to survive in the industry, and I have learnt a lot from her success,” she said.

Rambi says, although her and Bonang do not meet often due to hectic work schedules, when they do bump into each another, it is always pleasant.

As she gracefully shies away from her sister being the topic of discussion Rambi shares how she has received so much support from her mother and aunt and how she is planning to use her new found celebrity status to inspire people.

“The Miss SA platform and new-found celebrity status gave me a space to talk about the things that I am passionate about – modeling, children and being a businesswoman,” she added.
