IN a few months time Waterfall mother Salome Gouws will be strutting her stuff on stage again - this time as a finalist for the Ms South Africa National pageant 2015. She is appealing to the public for support in raising funds to bring the title home.

Gouws is currently ranked among the top 18 finalists in the pageant newly founded by H.E. Princess, Tebogo Modjadji Kekana.

She will be raising funds at the Miss Upper Highway beauty pageant on 25 July at Watercrest Mall. With many titles under her belt already and as a permanent make-up skin needling specialist, she holds Mrs KwaZulu-Natal 2014/2015 title and was ranked among the top 100 most beautiful woman in the 2015 Mrs. South Africa Pageant. “What a journey it was. Even though I wasn’t selected to go further as one of the 25 finalists, I didn’t give up. At first I was disheartened, but then I realised there were other opportunities out there.

“That’s when I entered the new Ms South Africa national pageant. It’s for all women – single, engaged, married or divorced – designed to uplift and support woman and make them feel beautiful,” she said.

Due to her down-to-earth personality and beauty with brains, this go-getter was chosen as one of the top 18 finalists.

One of the prizes for the winner of this pageant, is a directorship position in the pageant organisation, which the winner will hold in the area where she lives.

“This is what I am aiming for - as we need KZN to play a larger role within the pageant world. I ask the public to vote for me by SMSing 18 to 33100 to get me closer to winning the Ms South Africa National 2015 title and the directorship position.

“I also need the public’s support in helping me raise sponsorship funds to get me closer to reaching my dream. I really will be grateful for any support.”
