great to see a beautiful lady doing well for herself and representing. our lack of modelling agencies make it difficult for us to follow this career path at home, but i kind of like the way friends and family appear on prominent billboards!

Why is it that Malawian girls have to first go outside before they get recognition? Hazel Warren was a nobody before leaving for BBA3, when she came back, she's a super star. Malawians should encourage the girls in Malawi!

Thats kinda sad. I actually agree with your comments because in Malawi, no one gives attention to models. There will be rumors going on saying that she is a prostitute or that she should simply not do it because they believe it's not "malawian". LOL
Go Tajah Olson! Go Malawi!

not sure i agree, i've modelled for national bank and noones called me a prostitute! its easy to be used in an advert here, just got to know the martketing manager lol. modelling in malawi is not a big deal and its definitely not a career option!

Oh I didnt know that! Thats kinda cool though. The only disadvantage is that people can hardly make a living out it because of the lack of resources in Malawi.

When are you running for Miss Malawi?

Wow, this girl is so pretty and very talented. Looking at website and her back ground its unbelievable how much she has achieved just at 24yrs old.

I don't think she can even contest with our local girls to become Miss Malawi, why can't we just offer her the crown she has all the values.

When are you coming home???????

I was doubting if this lady Tajah was Malawian, i have been told indeed she is. Why I love her because she is so proud of her culture.

go girl
