MISS UMgungundlovu 2014, Terene Thomas, won the first princess title at the Southern Africa Local Government Ambassador (Salga) pageant at the Blue Water Hotel in Durban on Saturday.

This means that Thomas will be one of 27 women from the nine provinces who will compete in the national­ level competition in July.

“I feel blessed.”

Thomas said she is grateful to have made her family proud.

“I have come a long way and getting the first princess title is a blessing. I was expecting to go far in the competition, but I didn’t think this far. The competition was tight and the ladies I was competing with were very talented. Everybody who was there deserved to win. I’m now looking forward to the national competition and my focus is take that crown and bring it home.”

The founder of Umvithi Youth Development­ Mthobisi Mkhize said the focus is now on the next competition. Umvithi Youth Development is a youth organisation that hosted Miss UMgungundlovu last year. Thomas was crown Miss UMgungundlovu 2014 at that pageant.

Mkhize said what they are expecting from the crowned ladies is responsibility and commitment.

“We need ambassadors who will encourage the youth in all areas. The aim is to have a role model that everyone will look up to. We are grateful that she won and wish she wins the next title. She is a very talented young lady who wishes to take her modelling career­ to another level.”

The national competition will take place in Gauteng on 31 July
