“I entered Mr and Miss Faith Primary School, and I was the first princess. I also was in the Top Five in Miss OR Tambo School,” she said.

The St Benedict learner’s love for modelling was sparked by former Miss South Africa, Zozbini Tunzi.

“I love that she inspires young people to stay true to themselves. With my journey, I would also love to inspire young people to be confident.”

When she grows up, Kungawo says she aspires to be a pediatrician. “I love helping people, especially children,” she said.
