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.
The new Miss South Africa posted this image this morning to celebrate her win
She shared that she'd been dreaming about this day for very long
A fan of fitness mirror selfies, Demi- Leigh loves to keep fit
Her style is also on point as she has shared lots of beautiful red carpet-worthy looks, like this red, caped jumpsuit

Here she is at her graduation a week ago where she received her degree in B.Com Business Management and Entrepreneurship.
"I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended." Nelson Mandela Today I officially graduated and received my degree in B.Com Business management and entrepreneurship. Today was about taking a moment to stop, look back and appreciate the hard work and dedication that I have put into educating myself. Thank you to my family who supported me in every possible way. This is one great hill done and dusted. Now for the many more to come. #graduation #nwu #pukke #entrepreneur #business #DemiForMissSA
She's a true fan of the institution that is Miss SA
The Miss South Africa pageant moved to Sun City in 1991. Diana Tilden-Davis was the first Miss South Africa to be crowned in the Sun City Superbowl. Miss South Africa 2017 will be the 25th Miss South Africa to be crowned in this spectacular venue. So exciting ???????? #misssouthafrica #misssa2017 #misssafacts #DemiForMissSA #suncity

"There's a voice inside of you that knows what you are capable of achieving. I hope that one day, that voice gets so loud that it becomes all you can hear. There are moments you experience that remind you of how powerful you really are. I hope that one day, those moments happen so often that they become your normality. There are innate feelings you can’t shake that shape the decisions you make. I hope that one day, those intuitive decisions are all you choose to make. Because your power is here to make a positive change - for 1 human or 1 billion humans. The scale isn't relevant. The impact is. And the impact depends on you empowering you.

Proof. #MindOverMatter Thank you @womaninpowered team for the physical and emotional empowering workshop this morning. If I ever doubted myself in any way, that doubt is definitely broken now.
