The reason behind her running the pageant projects in Mpumalanga was because she felt that people in this province would benefit more from them.
“ We deal with a lot of people in Mpumalanga who are still in need of support from the government and individuals from the corporate world.
Throughout the journey of Mrs SA, we went out into communities and taught young women life skills, how to face and overcome challenges as a woman so, this is not about beauty only but we empower our communities through this pageant.
We also partnered with organizations such as Women for Women to empower young women”, she added.
