Green won the Miss South Africa title in 2018 and went on to represent South Africa in the Miss Universe 2018 beauty pageant where she was the first runner up.

The model and beauty pageant titleholder has since been practicing medicine and is now completing her second year medical internship as an anesthesiologist.

During the first roll out of vaccinations in South Africa, Green was one of the many essential workers who vaccinated.

She celebrated with an Instagram post: “VACCINATED ???????? The past year has been one of toughest by far. Having witnessed many patients pass due to Covid-19, having suffered from the infection myself and losing a family member to complications of the disease, this really feels like a light at the end of a very dark tunnel. Fighting Covid-19 one vaccine at a time, blessed.”
