Masake is the true meaning of beauty and brains, as she has been competing in beauty pageants since 2013, and she is also a philanthropist with her own foundation called Meisie Muis Motivates, that she started back in 2016. The foundation distributes sanitary towels that are collected amongst community members, to be given out to village schools. Not only does she do that but she is also a passionate philanthropist who is very passionate about the youth and empowering young people. This started because was bullied while at school, so she then went and decided to be the mouth and speak out for other kids that faced the same but lacked the confidence to be heard.
