Those people really, really know me, and hearing they are proud of me and they feel they are being seen is amazing to me.

The Miss South Africa pageant on Saturday was a limited audience due to Covid-19 lockdown.

She jokingly laughs and says 'I get stage fright so that worked for me.'

It was great to even have friends and family there, it was very limited, but having my mom and my aunt there was enough.

She says the organisers ensure the contestants still had a good experience while taking all the Covid-19 safety precautions.

This is the new normal, so we were appreciative we got to have some of her friends and family there.
