Miss South Coast: new Queen plans to get her hands dirty

2011-07-15 00:00

IT was a true fairytale moment for Miss South Coast Queen 2011 winner Cherie Muller on Wednesday night at the Lions Showgrounds in Port Shepstone, when she drove away in a Toyota Aygo, sponsored for a year by Halfway Toyota.

Muller said she was completely taken off guard by winning the competition.

“I was sitting on the ground, not expecting to be a princess, let alone the queen, so I was really in shock,” said Muller.

The audience, who had enjoyed entertainment by Roland Perold and a three-course meal by Safron Chefs, were in awe of Muller’s surprised expression and the grace with which she accepted the crown.

“I just did not expect to win and was utterly blown away.”

It took Muller a night’s sleep to realise the gravity of the responsibility she carries with the crown.

“It is a huge responsibility that I feel I am perfectly suited to meet.

“I will have to be on top form for modelling shows, but also an ambassador and leader on the South Coast,” she said.

Muller said she will put to good use her business connections on the coast and she wants to get the schools on board.

Muller, who is studying arts, drama and theatre at the University of Free State, said her studies will not prevent her from carrying out her duties to the full.

The prize of year, the use of the Toyota Aygo, could not have gone come at a better moment, as Muller’s car was recently involved in an accident.

Muller says she comes from a family “where everyone has to contribute, where life is not easy”.

Her father teaches agriculture at Suid-Natal Hoërskool and farms 350 pigs on their farm outside Uvongo.

“When I come home I help scrubbing the floors and help in the pigsty,” she said.

“Most beauty queens just show their face at events, but I want to get involved,” she said.

“I am quite a good singer and want to use that skill at events.

“I really want to get my hands dirty and make the most of this year as Miss South Coast Queen.

“It’s an opportunity of a lifetime and I intend making the most of it,” she added.
