The Miss South Africa organization will be hosting the coronation for Miss South Africa 2021 on 16th October 2021 at Sun International Grandwest Arena, where the representatives for next year’s editions of Miss Universe, Miss World, and Miss Supranational will be crowned. The organization officially announced the top 10 delegates who will now compete for the national crown.

Jeanni Mulder is one of the finalists who will be vying for the coveted crowns and an opportunity to represent South Africa on an international stage. She is 24-years-old and is currently doing a TEFL course to help educate people around the world to speak English. The diva started working as a professional model after graduating from school.



After being announced as the finalist, Jeanni stated, "I want to use my voice, my platform, my time, and my skills to better the road that others have to walk on." She entered Miss South Africa 2021 to provide hope and create opportunities for the younger generation. She wants to use her voice, platform, time, and skills to improve the road that others must walk on. Being Miss South Africa is an honor and a responsibility, and she would use her voice to influence all South Africans.

Jeanni discussed her struggles as a model and shared that she has battled depression and still struggles with anxiety, but she is firmer and more confident about who she wants to be and what she has to offer. This confidence has helped her to be content and understand that what she has to offer to the world is bigger than what her mind tells her. Since she has the first-hand experience with mental health issues, she believes that the youth of the country are dealing with the same issue, which should be addressed as soon as possible. Jeanni’s role model is her mother, who taught her to fight hard, love deeply, and never be afraid of being passionate about what makes you happy.



The diva shared that since she posted her entry video for the competition, she has seen massive growth in herself and is proud of herself for entering the competition. She added, "I just wish my younger self could see how far I’ve come, compared to the shy, insecure girl that I was growing up."

A message that she wants to give to young girls and women in South Africa is, "Who you are and what you have to offer is enough. You are so powerful and you deserve to be heard. Find you why, because everything you need to achieve greatness is already inside of you. " Jeanni would like to use her platform and voice to eradicate gender-based violence from the country.

If she wins, she would love to meet Oprah Winfrey as she feels like she could receive a lot of knowledge from her. What she has done by creating her Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa is incredible. She is a compassionate, strong-willed, and genuine woman who is going to make the best use of the opportunity given to her.
