18-year-old Oriana Ribeiro has been crowned Miss Teen 2023. She takes over from Zoe Karsten.
Ribeiro is an advocate for a change of mind-set, and she believes circumstances do not dictate one’s quality of life but the way one thinks about it. She excitedly highlights why she entered the pageant: “I entered Miss Teen Namibia 2023 because I knew that being a part of this competition would help me overcome my severe anxiety of public speaking and inspire selflessness within me, allowing me to make greater contributions to society. Additionally, I saw it as an exciting opportunity for personal growth and a chance to experience incredible moments that would shape my life forever.”
