Miss Supranational South Africa Thato Mosehle is in Poland, where she will take part in the 12th edition of the pageant on 21 August. See her national costume here

Previously speaking to Channel24 about representing the country at Miss Supranational, Thato said she is "feeling very excited and happy".

"South Africa will be part of this pageant for the first time ever under the Miss South Africa umbrella. I feel like I'm being given the privilege of holding the pen that will write the history for South African women in this competition," she said.

Ahead of the grand finale later this month, the 58 candidates have been paired up with a roommate for the duration of the competition - and Thato's roomie is Miss Supranational USA, Shivali Patel. 

The duo seemingly hit it off immediately, creating fun content for their followers on social media. 

In their latest video, Thato taught Shivali some popular South African phrases including "bathong", "wathint' abafazi, wathint' imbokodo," "mo'ghel" and "baie dankie!"
