It was an evening of glitz and glamour as Miss South Africa 2018‚ Tamaryn Green was crowned during an electric ceremony at the Sun Arena in Pretoria. Tamaryn beat 11 other dazzling young women from across the country to scoop the prestigious crown. She will also represent the country on a global stage at Miss Universe SA. Tamaryn made it to the top two and beat 26-year-old‚ University of Cape Town graduate Thulisa Keyi who walked away with the Miss World SA title.
Tamaryn is a 23-year-old medical student from the Western Cape. She is the 3rd consecutive winner from the Western Cape. The dazzling student looked amazing in a Galluzzi e Gini number and the model bowled judges over when she told them that she would use her medical knowledge to heal people. “I want to empower women to be the best version of themselves.”
“Miss Universe must be unapologetic‚ beautiful‚ demonstrate credibility and grace under pressure. She loves her country and knows this will always be home.” Outgoing Miss SA Adè van Heerden said that she handed the crown over with a full heart. Tonight also marked 60 years since the Miss SA pageant first started and nearly 40 former Miss South Africa title holders took to the stage for a beautiful tribute.
Tamaryn walks away with a lucrative R3-million prize package‚ which includes a R1-million cash prize and a fully-furnished apartment for the year of her reign‚ and a Nissan Qashqai. She looks like a Miss Universe already!
