The beautiful Thobile Steyn is the new reigning queen in the streets of Soweto as she is wearing the Miss Soweto crown for the year 2020.
Born and bred in Diepkloof, Steyn became Miss Soweto 2020 on Saturday, November 28, at the Soweto Theatre in Jabulani. Her crowning was a double celebration as she was celebrating her 21st birthday. The young lady who is also a Politics and International relations graduate aims to use her reign to make a difference in girls lives. Anathi Conjwa has crowned the first princess while Kutloano Moloi was the second princess.
Talking to social tv publication, she admitted that she was still in disbelief about winning the award. “I’m feeling overwhelmed. I don’t have words to define how I am feeling. I’m still shocked. I’m sure it will sink in once I begin to do things that I have been wanting to do during my reign. Everyone has been congratulating me.”
Steyn won a cash prize of R100 000 and an additional R5 000 for winning Miss Congeniality, too. In celebration of the 41st annual Miss Soweto, the pageant organisers took to social media to congratulate the winners. They wrote: “The new Queen of Soweto has been crowned! Congratulations to Thobile Steyn who has officially begun her reign as #MissSoweto2020.
