Social Sciences student Ms Nomfundo Mayeza is a finalist in the upcoming Miss Teenager South Africa 2020 – a pageant which focuses on youth empowerment and making a difference in the lives of others.

Mayeza entered the pageant with the goal of using the platform to be an agent of change in her community and to empower women and the youth.

This year’s theme is ‘Naledi’*, which is the name of the 2020 crown. ‘This theme encourages young women to believe in themselves, be confidently beautiful in their own skin so that we can reach our full potential as individuals,’ said Mayeza.

Passionate about community engagement, Mayeza has initiated a social media campaign titled #YoungstersTakingCharge. ‘It is a campaign for the shoot your shot generation,’ she said. ‘So that all young people in the world can start taking charge, make a mark and open the doors to their dreams. I plan to use my non-profit organisation, which I am establishing, to bring about concrete change in the lives of all South Africans.’

She has this advice for students: ‘We are human and bound to make mistakes and experience failure but we should not let that define us or make us deviate from our dreams and capabilities. Do all you can to turn your dreams into reality without forgetting the importance of your education.’
