Although her dream to become a model started at the very tender age, it was in 2018 when she was just 15 when she decided to give it a try in a tough competition among her peers via the Face of Lebowakgomo but she soon developed butterflies in her tummy and pulled out in the last minute.
“Modeling has been in my blood since I was young but I decided to take my time before competing, and I decided to try my luck during the Face of Lebowakgomo in 2018 but only to pull out of the competition because I thought I wasn’t ready enough to face those other models,” remises Ofentse.
Ofentse however overcame her fears in 2019 and followed her heart as she registered again for Face of Lebowakgomo in the Teen category and she came out top after beating all her competitors to win the competition on her first attempt.
