Natasha Joubert Crowned Miss South Africa 2023
Natasha Joubert was crowned Miss South Africa 2023 at the spectacular pageant finale held at the SunBet Arena at Time Square in Pretoria on Sunday night.
The 26-year-old BCom Marketing Management graduate, fashion designer, owner of Natalia Jeffery and 2020 Miss SA runner-up said she was truly humbled and grateful to win the title in her acceptance speech.
“I am incredibly honoured and humbled to be crowned Miss South Africa 2023. As I step into this new role, I am filled with a sense of responsibility to make a positive difference in the world around me. I believe that success is not just about personal accomplishments but about the opportunities we have to give back and uplift those around us. I will strive to be a source of inspiration and support for others, just as I have been supported on my journey now and before.”
“This moment is the epitome of a full circle moment for me. A dream that started 11 years ago – and which three years ago did come to fruition after proudly representing my country on an international stage at Miss Universe at Miss Universe South Africa – has today become a reality. It took a lot of hard work, grit, self-confidence and support to keep my dream alive and to keep on believing in the beauty of second chances. It is a journey that I will forever be grateful for, which moulded and shaped me into the woman I am today.”Natasha Joubert.
The runner-up was Bryoni Govender from Johannesburg, who also won the Motherkind fitness award and the winner of the special Crown Chaser of the season award, as voted for by the public, was Lungo Katete.
