I was born and bred in the shades of Blouberg Mountain ‘Thabeng tsa ga Mmaleboho; thabeng e tala le selemo’. In a little village called Eusauringa, in Bochum.
I’m a loving wife to Mr. Modisagaarekwe Diakanyo and proud Mother of two beautiful girls: Galaletsang and Bokang, aged 8 and 15 months.
I attended my lower Primary at the Rasekgale Primary school in Bochum and went on to do my higher primary and high school at Westernburg Primary and Secondary School in Polokwane.
I went on to further my studies at the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) doing a National Diploma in Eco-Tourism Management.
Also have a Certificate in Events Management done at INTEC College.

I have been working within the Gauteng Provincial Government for over 10 years and am currently working as an Office Manager at the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs; working within the Community Development, Public Participation and Stakeholder Liaison Chief Directorate.

I was selected as one of the Top-100 Semi Finalist for the Mrs. South Africa Pageant.
The pageant is more of a “Woman Empowerment movement”, focused on empowering and uplifting married, sophisticated, beautiful, real women who are ambitious and successful in their own right, business minded, feminine and yet also proud wives and mothers.
The pageant supports the CANSA Foundation and works towards raising funds for the people diagnosed with cancer.
Why I got to Enter the Pageant:
My goal for entering the Mrs South Africa Pageant is to gain recognition as a young Black Married Woman with an aspiration for change; to use the given platform to inject a mind set of change within SA’s rural areas by empowering and educating Women and Children who have the opportunity and power of shaping our future.
As a South African citizen, from a rural background, having had the rural experience myself; being married to a Husband with the same background but different Provinces; I know what it feels like to grow up without information and any form of empowerment from the people, parents or teachers around you.
It took a lot of fighting and sacrifices from our parents to get us to where we are today and my mission is to use my experience, this opportunity and platform awarded by the pageant to change the situation for those voiceless women and children still rooted within those areas of our country.
My mission is to:
- To awaken and empower women my age and older, who are married or aspiring to; that one’s life, hopes and dreams do not end when you say “I do”, instead that’s only when it begins; and
- To awaken, educate and instil change in the minds of the children in those rural areas, so as to better shape their future.
Charity Work Involved In:
I’ve have since adopted a charity Non-Profit Organisation that was founded in my village called: Matome Monepya Drop-in Centre.
My family and I assisted them so far with the company registration process, and are working at assisting them with information and profiling them to enable them to find sponsorships.
In order for me to continue with the Mrs. South Africa Pageant from Semi-finalist to the end, I need to be sponsored by any willing reputable Company. The sponsorship for now is at R5000 + Vat and the money will be used for the running costs of Mrs. SA Pageant.
The company will get the following in return:
- Company Logo will feature on the Mrs. SA page, which is viewed by thousands of people and will grow as the pageant goes towards the crowning event in October 2015.
- The Logo will also be featured at the CANSA GALA Dinner to be hosted on the 24th April 2015.
- The Logo will also form part of my Brand as a Semi-finalist and going forward, and will be viewed by all as I campaign for their Brand on my social space; and lastly,
- The money will be used in promoting and enabling my dream as I aim to work hard towards being crowned Mrs. South Africa 2016, and to get the opportunity to voice my dream, which is to awaken, empower and educate the rural voiceless women and children of our country.
