21-year-old Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters has been crowned Miss South Africa 2017!

Channel24 reported on her crowning at the Sun City Superbowl; with Boipelo Mabe as second princess and Adè van Heerden as first princess in the 59th annual beauty pageant.

It’s an exciting time in Demi-Leigh’s life as she's not only receiving a bevy of wonderful prizes, but she’ll also be serving her country as she travels locally and abroad meeting people from all walks of life.

So, since we don’t know much about the new Miss SA yet, we decided to have a look at her Instagram account to find out a bit more about her everyday life.
