Brainy beauty: Local graduate’s double whammy

2008-04-30 00:00

FIVE days after graduating with a B.Sc. Honours degree in genetics cum laude, Horacia Naidoo (21) was crowned Miss uShaka Marine World 2008, a title that automatically qualifies her to enter into the Miss South Africa pageant.

Always an academic achiever who winged her way through school and university with bursaries, Naidoo will be performing her ambassadorial tasks for the marine park while working on a project on Downs Sydrome at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli Hospital in Durban.

Miss South Africa will be her last foray into the world of beauty pageants.
