SHE has done it again - on an even bigger stage. Greytown's star, nine-year-old Deante Swart, has hit the headlines internationally after being chosen "Little Miss World 2016" and "Photo Model of the Year 2016'' in the World League of Beauty and Fashion contest in Turkey. And for the first time in the 25 years of this event, a nine year old, Deante, has been granted honorary membership of the league. Over and above these awards she was selected as the overall winner of this prestigious competition having chosen as number one in every category she entered. Other entrants - girls, boys ladies and men ranging in age from five to 26 - were from 40 countries.

Deante now has six international titles to her name.

A pupil at Wembley College, Deante is also committed to community work and is involved with Letcee and Arcadia.

The contestants during the 10 days of the competition put on a talent act, took part in panel interviews and several modelling shows on the catwalk.

Greytown is very proud of its young ambassador.

Yet another win for South Africa and KZN - seven-year-old Zanele Mncwabe was crowned Little Miss Universe 2016 and Best of the Best 2016 (Deante won this title last year).
