"Miss South Africa should also have a serving heart, be relatable, generous and passionate about empowering other women and girls. Never underestimate the power of one. You need to shine as the best form of yourself. Always be authentic and talk and act from the heart. Don't pretend to be something you are not," she added.
The beauty queen goes on to remind the future title holder of the enormous responsibility that comes along with this role.
"It is hard to comprehend just how big the Miss South Africa platform is and the opportunities it offers the title holder. It is bigger than I ever could have imagined. I found myself in the position where my voice was heard. However, this comes with immense responsibility. You are able to help as many people as you can. You have to seize the opportunity and run with it. It really does transform your life."
The 2019 Miss South Africa pageant will take place at the Sun Arena, Time Square in Pretoria on 9 August.
