Bloemfontein rose, Boitumelo Toli, who holds a number of pageant titles, has made it into the Top 25 of the Miss Teen SA 2021 and is looking forward to representing her city.
The born and bred Bloemfontein girl has always been passionate about making a difference from a young age and is also the proud title holder of Miss Secondary Schools South Africa Personality in 2018 and Miss Teen Mangaung Second Princess.
Toli told Bloemfontein Courant in an interview that 2020 has been challenging and being in the finals of Miss Teen South Africa is one of her greatest achievements so far. She is truly grateful for the accomplishment.
“Pageants are a platform where we as young women empower one another instead of competing against each other. As we are future of our country we don’t need be afraid to put out your voice and be heard, because I believe there is always a room for improvement,” she said.
According to her, one of her big visions for the New Year is learning how to communicate in sign language. “Disabled people have always been misinterpreted and I believe we all deserve a chance to be heard.”
Toli also hopes that being Miss Teen SA will help her find sponsors for the project she aims to start in the next few months.
