Bryoni Govender is set to radiate South Africa’s light at Miss Universe 2023. The beauty queen emerged first runner-up at this year’s Miss South Africa, and she will be representing at the 72nd Miss Universe Competition which takes place in El Salvador on November 18.
“I have always believed that being different is a superpower and becoming the second South African of Indian descent to represent our beautiful country on the international stage is a testament to that fact. I will be giving the competition my all and have already started extensive preparations.”

My advocacy is to address and remove the gaps in the progress of women’s empowerment by introducing mentorship programs focusing on business and leadership courses, entrepreneurial and job training programs, and skills development training programs on secondary to post-tertiary levels of education for girls and women.”
