Miss South Africa Organisation CEO, Stephanie Weil, said she is delighted with the support South Africans are showing Bryoni.

“We wish her all of the best as she competes on the international stage, and we know that she has what it takes to win the title as she exudes leadership, focus, and passion. She has worked incredibly hard as Miss Universe South Africa and is an inspiration for a generation of young girls who wish to reach for a dream.”
