I am a 17-year-old student at Pretoria High School for Girls. I am the current Miss Teen Universe South Africa. I entered my first pageant at 14 and won my first pageant. My love for pageantry stemmed from watching the Miss South Africa pageants every year from a young age. I am looking forward to studying Town and Regional Planning next year at the University of Pretoria.
I have been privileged enough to not have had an experience that almost cost me my life.
Women empowerment means uplift all women, young, old, from all backgrounds, and giving them the opportunity to improve some part of their life.
I am in the first team for netball and soccer at my school. I’ve played netball and gymnastics for the provincial team. I am Miss SA Teen Ambassador 2019 I am Miss Teen Commonwealth SA 2020 2nd Princess I am Miss Teen Universe South Africa 2022
My upcoming competition is Miss Teen Universe, the international pageant where all the Miss Teen Universes of their respective countries will compete in Dubai, in October, to become Miss Teen Universe.
Watching Miss SA every year, I developed a passion for it. My mom saw my love for pageants, and she entered me into one. If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
I’d like to leave a legacy of love, kindness, and servant leadership. I believe that those are attributes of a true queen and attributes that I carry as Ntando Sgudla, Miss Teen Universe South Africa.
