“One of the first things that came to mind, was I going to leave university? The thought of leaving university in my third year and final semester brought tears to my eyes. I was so close and wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I decided to stop. So, I took up the challenge,” her post read.
The beauty queen said that balancing her duties was challenging but she did it all with faith and with the guidance of God.
“Trying to balance the duties of Miss Namibia and being an economics student in which it required lots of brain power. I felt like I was being split in half and couldn’t give 100% attention to both defining roles in my life. But God is alive.
And boy oh boy is He good. He gave me the strength. He gave me the endurance, all the very late nights and early mornings and sometimes sun rising because it’s never a nice feeling going into an exam feeling like you could have prepared more. I just want to thank God. All glory and honor go to him,” said Selma.

“I believe I am a vessel, and I hope that God has shown you, through my experience, that you can achieve whatever you set your mind and your heart to. Go out and be great, no excuses,” she said.
Congratulations to her!
