Cape Town - Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters is finally home!
The Miss Universe winner landed at OR Tambo airport on Wednesday, where crowds gathered to welcome the pageant queen home.
The 22-year-old, who’s been based in New York since her crowning, will kick off her week-long tour in Johannesburg, then move on to Cape Town and her hometown, Sedgefield.
While travelling the country, the brunette beauty will hosting her Unbreakable workshops – an initiative she started while still in South Africa – in Soweto and Cape Town with locals.
The self-defence campaign aims to train women on how to deal with various situations including assault, violence and sexual harassment.
Demi will also be paying a visit to the victims of the Knysna fires, who she helped raise funds for last year.
She made History in November when she became the second South African – the first being Margaret Gardiner – to win the prestigious crown.
“I can’t begin to express my gratitude and how proud I am to represent our country as Miss Universe. Being a global ambassador is as much a responsibility as it is an honour,” Demi said after her win.
