OUR ‘WOMAN OF THE MONTH’,
ROSA VAN NIEKERK
My name is Rosa van Niekerk. I am a daughter of the King, happy, brave and strong.
I was born in Keetmanshoop, Namibia, and later moved to Upington in South Africa, where I matriculated at Hoӫrskool Duineveld in 1994. I went on to study law at the University of The Free State and obtained my B.Prok Degree in 2000. I am currently the sole proprietor of a medium sized law firm in Westonaria called Rosa van Niekerk Attorneys.
Because I previously experienced both physical and emotional abuse, I have a passion for family law, maintenance and divorces. During 2017 I was invited by the Law Society of the Northern Provinces to attend the training course to become an aspirant candidate Judge for the High and Appeal Court. I completed the training successfully and I am now blessed to be part of a few attorneys that have this title.
I currently live with my husband, Jacobus and my two daughters Rosa (12) and Isabelle (9) in Westonaria. I am very passionate about horse riding and both myself and my daughter compete in Western riding.
During 2016, my life took a drastic turn when I had a big fall with my horse, Saffier. Being in forced bed rest, a new dream was born, Worthy Woman Make-up. Worthy Woman Make-up is not only a make-up company but a vessel to spread my God-given message of ‘Crown Up’. Worthy Woman Make-up specialises in make-overs including pageant make-up, bridal make-up, giving one-on- one lessons, and corporate make-up. My passion for make-up work has led me into the world of pageants.
I entered the Mrs Grand South Africa pageant and by the Grace of God I won, despite not having had any previous experience in modelling and pageantry. By winning the title of Mrs Grand South Africa and Mrs Classic South Africa, I was entered into the Mrs Classic Universe pageant in Bulgaria in January 2018. I was humbled and blessed to win the title for South Africa and currently hold the title of Mrs Classic Universe 2018.
After winning this title, I had a clear dream to create Rosa van Niekerk Pageant Academy. Rosa van Niekerk Pageant Academy was born. We provide training in, inter alia, Ramp Skills, Pageant Preparation, Make-up and Hair, Health and Fitness, Manners and Etiquette, Photographic Modelling, Public Speaking, Posture and Self Confidence. Helping others to realize their full potential actually helps me grow as a person.
I am currently involved in several charity works at Nalibali Book Club for under privileged children, Rotara School for Disabled Children and Epic Foundation.
