Mikaela Oosthuizen is a second year BA Media student. Inspired by Miss World Rolene Strauss, she wants to use the Miss South Africa platform to advance the importance of education to all South Africans.
She has a strong message for other young women: "You cannot act like cheap flip-flops and expect to be treated like an expensive Louis Vuitton. Value yourself, educate yourself and don't let anyone treat you in a way that diminishes you."
The one thing she cannot do, she says, is ride a bicycle. Otherwise the sky is the limit and with hard work anything is achievable.
