AFTER months of searching for the Kouga Express Miss Matric Dance for 2018, the winner was finally chosen - not an easy task.

She is the beautiful and stylish Shevonne Nelson from Humansdorp Senior Secondary School, who bowled the judges over with her stunning dress and overall look for her matric dance held at the school hall on June 20 this year.

She was crowned the fourth Miss Matric Dance Winner.

“A saw a picture of a dress in a magazine and I immediately knew that it would be perfect for me,” says Shevonne. “With the inspiration from my mother and designer - Hester Pretorius from Notch Boutique in Jeffreys Bay - we changed the detail to fit my style.

The only thing that bothered me at that stage was the right colour I had to choose - a unique colour that would compliment my skin tone perfectly.

“My dad decided on the colour and I’ve loved it ever since.”

Her hair was done by Boutique Salon; her make-up was done by her cousin Bronwyn Kamineth and her photographer was Heshaam Shaaban from InFocus Photography.

According to Shevonne, most of her planning for the matric dance started during the December holiday of 2017.

She said her matric dance exceeded her expectations “above and beyond”. “I was blown away by all the decor. delicious food, atmosphere and beautiful programme. This was definitely one magical night I will never forget.”

She was accompanied to her dance by her twin sister, Shevirnne.

“Since grade 11, my twin sister and I decided that we are going to be partners for the matric dance - come what may.”

She said she never expected to come this far in the competition.

“I did not think for one moment that I would have made is thus far, says this avid Kouga Express reader.

“My designer motivated me to enter, and I decided to go ahead and do something out of my comfort zone.”

Not only a pretty face - and dress - Shevonne was the deputy headgirl for 2018 at Humansdorp Senior Secondary School and she was one of the top 10 academic candidates in grade 12.

She was also a peer promotor, cheerleader, first aid representative and a member of the RCL.

She will study towards a nursing degree at Stellenbosch University next year.

Shevonne’s free time is dedicated towards mastering the euphonium - a brass instrument - which she plays as a member of the band and her church.

Her advice for next year’s grade 12 lear-ners attending a matric dance? “Plan ahead - enjoy and make every moment count.”
