Johannesburg – Twenty-three-year-old Tamaryn Green was crowned Miss South Africa 2018 at a glitzy event that was held at the Sun Arena in Time Square in Pretoria over the weekend.

Green is a medical student from Paarl in the Western Cape and she was also named Miss Universe South Africa.

This year the competition awarded crowns to two beauties, one who will compete in the Miss World competition and one in the Miss Universe competition. 

Green is Miss Universe South Africa while Thulisa Keyi, a  26-year-old BCom Accounting graduate from Fourways in Gauteng, was crowned Miss World South Africa.

Green became the ultimate winner as there can only be one reigning Miss South Africa.

Speaking after her crowning, Green vowed to make a positive change in the lives of South Africans.

“I promise to build on the legacy of all former Miss South Africa title holders and to represent my country with elegance, style, beauty and unwavering commitment. Miss South Africa is so much more than just a competition. It is a calling, an opportunity to give back to the country that has richly provided so much to me so far.

“As Miss South Africa, I will be in a strong position to assist with the reconstruction of a better South Africa. I have always been passionate about making a positive and progressive difference in the lives of others. I grew up being exposed to two very different worlds: That of the fortunate and less fortunate.

“I want to assist in bringing those worlds together. I believe this can be done by providing equal education to all. Actions speak louder than words.  I want to be a voice to those who cannot be heard, a servant and role model for South Africans and to the people of the world at large,” said Green.

Green added that she will use her medical background to improve health delivery in the nation.

“As Miss South Africa I will use my medical knowledge to help and heal.  Secondly, as an influencer, I will inspire and motivate all the women of South Africa to reach for their strengths and overcome their challenges.”

Besides the coveted crown, Green also went away with a prize package to the value of more than R3 million, the largest in the history of the event. 

Green and Keyi were selected from the Top Five, which also included Noxolo Ndebele, Karishma Ramdev and Thandokazi Mfundisi.

The crowning of Green was, however, met with different feelings on social media across the nation.

Some congratulated Green, for the victory while others expressed concern over the issue of black women whom they say could not win the pageant because of apartheid, hence they expect free South Africa to consider them.

“Maybe it’s a lot to ask, but it would’ve been so amazing to see the women who could not be Miss SA because of apartheid being honoured,” read one Twitter message.

“At least, she has natural hair and natural eyelashes. Well done, Tamaryn. Don’t listen to haters. You have the beauty and the brains,” read another Twitter message.
