Anthea Amber Isaacs, 20, Western Cape

“I entered Miss Teen SA because firstly it gives you many opportunities , such as build self confidence .There are so many things you learn not only about yourself, but also about communication skills, leadership, interviews and poise. Pageantry is a doorway for those who want to be on stage, give back, and of course learn more about themselves. Something someone once told me is that ‘you define the crown, the crown does not define you’, meaning you make the crown, so do something good, amazing, and make a difference and that is why I entered Miss Teen SA”.
