Lebohang Monyatsi, The First African ‘Wheel Chair’ Model


The Modelling world can now and again be viewed as judgmental and shallow, however endeavors have been made to guarantee that there is better inclusivity, for example, for the situation of Lebohang Monyatsi, the first South African lady in a wheelchair to be on the runway.

When we consider inclusivity, race, sex, and sexuality are what naturally spring to mind, however individuals with incapacities are once in a while ever mulled over. Nowadays, there is a move in that worldview, on account of associations like The Only One Foundation.

This establishment bolsters undertakings such as Miss Wheelchair World, which Lebohang is set to represent South Africa in this year.

The beauty queen holds a degree in Social Psychology and is currently studying for a second degree in Communication Science. She was also a finalist in the pageant Face Of The Globe, and was the only finalist with a disability.

Miss Wheelchair World as a platform aims to change the perception of women with disabilities, create the opportunity for better integration, break barriers, and most of all to show that a disability is not a limitation.

Lebohang encompasses most of these things, and we are looking forward to seeing how well she will perform in this upcoming pageant!
