Wow! First, I have to thank the Heavenly Father for granting me this gift; for giving me the strength and guidance to reach for my dreams. I believe our creator has a path set for each and every one of us and I am blessed to continue mine.
Secondly, a big thanks to my parents, family and amazing friends for their support. Thank you for teaching me the ways of life and presenting me with the opportunities to make this dream come true. I would not be where I am today without you.
To Cell C and Sun International, a special thanks for the sponsorship and support throughout the competition. Thank you for creating this platform for women to utilise their inner and outer beauty for a bigger purpose.
To the people of South Africa: I am honoured to be your Miss South Africa 2018. With this accomplishment I promise to represent you and my country with pride and distinction. I will carry the South African flag high and represent my nation in the fullness of its diversity.
I promise to build on the legacy of all former Miss South Africa title holders and to represent my country with elegance, style, beauty and unwavering commitment.
Miss South Africa is so much more than just a competition. It is a calling, an opportunity to give back to the country that has richly provided so much to me so far.
