My heart is filled with so much gratitude as you know that the work we have done together has been the main focus and purpose of my reign as Miss South Africa and to be able to share this with people on the other side of the World has been an absolute highlight of my journey here so far.”

Her Beauty With A Purpose project focused on mental health awareness, something she promoted throughout her Miss South Africa reign.
As part of the project, Shudu released her children’s book, Shudu finds her magic, which tells the story of her upbringing, including how she was bullied at school by her classmates and how she overcame her sadness and challenges as she grew into an adult, who learnt to love herself.
The winner of the Beauty with Purpose will be announced on Thursday, December 16 during the beauty pageants finale in Puerto Rico.
