The new Miss SA: Demi-Leigh
If you haven’t heard by now, where have you been? The gorgeous 21-year-old Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, from Sedgefield in the Western Cape is our new Miss South Africa 2017!
The final year B.Com business management and entrepreneurship student describes it as a dream come true and is quite determined to make the most of her reign, by empowering women and creating employment.
Nel-Peters says she is on a mission to use her platform to execute change in the country. Her biggest inspiration for this is her half-sister who was born without a cerebellum and is completely disabled. Nel-Peters was crowned the new Miss South Africa at Sun City and walked away with prizes worth R2 million.
