South Africa's very first wheelchair runway model, Lebohang Monyatsi, has made the country proud.

Monyatsi was crowned runner-up in the inaugural Miss Wheelchair World beauty pageant in Warsaw, Poland.

The pageant was created specifically to change negative attitudes around people with disabilities.  

News24 visited Monyatsi at her grandmother's home in Vryburg, shortly before she left for Poland. Watch that interview here.
