On 17 August, Aniki Rall was crowned the new Miss Windhoek Gymnasium. Rall said her prior preparations helped her succeed in the competition.

“I believe that the fact that I enjoyed competing with my fellow learners in grade 11 helped me to stand out even more,” she said.

Through this platform, she hopes to inspire young people to pursue their goals and have a positive influence on the lives of others. “By sharing my experiences and the lessons I’ve gained over the years, I hope to serve as an example for young people.”

While Rall is not currently working on any charitable causes, she would like to work with cancer patients and promote the protection of desert lions in future.

The Miss Windhoek Gymnasium pageant consistently demonstrates that it is a magnificent occasion.

“I always wanted to go to Miss Windhoek Gymnasium with my friends, and I always looked forward to it.

Beauty pageants build self-confidence and self-discipline while bringing a diversity of individuals together,” Rall said, adding that they also “offer new opportunities where participants develop relationships, and encourage charity”.

The beauty queen’s interests include dancing at the Anchen Wille Dance Academy. Her journey at the academy started at the age of seven. One of the activities she does after school is cheerleading, she said, adding that a healthy balance between academics and other responsibilities is very important.

“I am proud to say that in my academics I receive honourary academic colours. My strongest subjects are English and mathematics.”

The young Rall is still figuring out her future plans, but she is considering either the accounting or medical fields.

Her goal for her school is for it to stay a top-notch institution. She also wants the school to maintain its commitment to excellence. “Windhoek Gymnasium provides so many options for every learner and they equip us for the future as adults,” she said. “The school provides us with a wealth of chances and prioritises the interests of learning opportunities for learners.”
