A 16-year-old Kimberley beauty walked off with the title of Miss Teen Universe South Africa 2022.
THE FAIREST teenager in the universe of South Africa is from Kimberley!
This after 16-year-old Kimberley beauty Theanè Willemse walked off with the title of Miss Teen Universe South Africa 2022.
Theanè was crowned on Sunday during a ceremony held at the Coastlands Musgrave Hotel in Durban.
The teenager first broke through a provincial competition.
“We went for auditions per province, where 120 contestants were selected as semi-finalists. Only 67 finalists made it through to the finals for Miss Teen Universe South Africa,” explained Theanè.
She added that she never thought she would be crowned the overall winner.
“I did not expect to win at all, especially since there were so many girls I thought had the potential to walk off with the title.
“I have worked very hard for this and am thankful that my hard work paid off.”
Theanè, who is from Royldene and is home-schooled at Teneo, said she also received some other prizes besides the title.
“I was awarded an opportunity to represent South Africa in Florida in November for the Miss Teen Universe competition. I also received a cash prize, a gift bag and of course a beautiful crown and sash.”
