On the journey of becoming Mrs South Africa, she and all the finalists underwent a six-month training course. Focusing on self-development, becoming a voice of change within their communities, and showing up as strong, influential women who create a positive domino effect throughout South Africa to empower women beyond the Mrs SA platform.

“To the Mrs South Africa class of 2021, the bravest women I know, this journey has been a walk of grace. We have laughed together, cried together, but most of all, we’ve grown together, thanks to Mrs SA’s empowerment programme.

“I am forever grateful for the friendships we have forged and have the utmost respect for each of you. May we continue to effect change by taking those risks and continue to rise by lifting those around us,” commented Judnick-Wilson.

Roxy van Bruwaene, 39, from Emalahleni was named the first runner-up, and Michelle Forsyth, 29, from Cape Town was the second runner-up.
