Cape Town - Voted as one of the most beautiful women in the country, Miss World South Africa, Sasha-Lee Laurel Olivier hopes to raise over a million rand to get ten thousand packs for her "beauty with a purpose" campaign.
She plans to support men and women who have been sexually assaulted regardless of the outcome of the pageant on December 14.
“I understand that being Miss World South Africa comes with a big responsibility, and I am just grateful to be here. It’s something I have to remind myself of every day,” said Olivier. Growing up in Alberton, Gauteng, Olivier always wished to wear the Miss World South Africa sash and it has been her life-long dream.
“I had to command my space and stand up and fight for what I believed is mine,” added the beauty queen who said the Miss World would be a great platform to champion her cause.
As part of her #ItsNotYourFault campaign, Olivier will be at the Kensington police station on Wednesday to distribute Rape Comfort Packs.
