Not only does Miss SA Junior finalist, Nthandoyenkosi Kunene come from Mkhondo, but also Miss Junior SA finalist, Andréa Abrahams!
Andréa Abrahams has been chosen as a finalist in the Miss Junior SA pageant which will take place in Pretoria from 22 to 26 March. There are different age categories in the pageant and she will be taking part in the 18 to 22-year old category. Girls are judged on inter alia confidence, verbal skills, poise (especially in front of audiences) and how they walk (model). They also have to supply all the judges (10) and other staff, like choreographers and others (38 in total), with small gifts. The gifts should not be anything edible and the contestants are also judged by the chosen gifts.
The contestants are expected to do charity work and raise funds as well. Andréa does most of her charity work at Uzwelo Home. She does, however, still need a lot of funds and any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Contact Marina at Excelsior News should you want to assist. For the pageant they have to model in casual wear ( a pair of jeans and the Miss Junior SA pageant shirt), evening wear, interview outfits (the skirt and jacket-professional look) and as some or other Disney character. Andréa is also a finalist in the Face of South Africa competition on FB. She believes in natural beauty and does not plaster herself with make-up.
She has won a string of beauty titles like Miss Rainbow Festival 2012 (her first), Miss Blue Jeans (Pretoria), Miss Secunda Show and Miss Gert Sibande. Andréa has also been second princess in the Miss Sparkling Beauty and Miss Teen South Africa pageants. In the recent Miss Christmas Beauty pageant in Secunda, she was crowned first princess. Andréa is especially thankful for all the support she receives from her family, her model coach (Alicia van den Bergh) and her best friend Nicole Gerber. She is excited about the upcoming contest, but also quite stressed. May you succeed in raising enough funds Andréa and may you add the title of Miss Junior South Africa to your collection. We are all very proud of you. Good luck!
