"My fondness for pageants emerged when I entered and won the University of Pretoria MISS AFRICA Pageant in (2014). Inpired by the spirit of giving back I am now vying for the title of MS AFRICA (Continental Pageant)".
" Never wanting to rest on my laurels, " I Petunia makome Will be launching 'THE BLACK BARBIE LIFESTYLE in August, a personal development program, Lifestyle brand and global community for women who desire to make a big impact, be happy and live an abundant lifestyle. My mission is to empower ambitious women to create the life of their dreams and use their God-Given talents to make a Difference. The human mind can be a dangerous place. I see a lot of young people battling with constant insecurities, confusion and fear, It is never easy being a teenager/young adult in such a demanding world, and for this reason l continue to be interested in assisting the youth in any way possible" Petunia said.
" I entered Ms Africa because I want to serve, I want to be used as a vessel for change, I want to inspire young people to dream big and help them realize that they have everything they need to create their ideal lives and also make a difference.

What I'm hoping to archive in the future..
" Being Ms Africa will allow me to reach out to more young people than I am currently able to. I want to challenge them to take control of their lives and rise to the challenge of using their God-given talents to serve and better their lives. It's not about where they come from or what they went through, God has equipped them with everything they need to lead the best life.
