Pretoria – The City’s Miss South Africa 2020 finalists are having a look ahead to reconnecting with family and friends as they commemorate Heritage Day day after today.
Lebogang Mahlangu of Soshanguve stated even if she in most cases spent the day website hosting lunch with family and friends, this yr’s Heritage Day can be a bit of extra particular for her.
“This is because we have not had a lot of time together as a family. Coming from a blended family – my mother being Tsonga and my father Ndebele – this day always represents the celebration of diversity and our ever-evolving culture.”
Centurion finalist Natasha Joubert stated with everybody adjusting to the “new normal”, she used to be having a look ahead to celebrating the day through having a braai with circle of relatives.
Joubert stated for her, Heritage Day represented the original, inherited sense of her circle of relatives id, together with the values, traditions and tradition passed all the way down to her through her oldsters and circle of relatives.
She stated having been afforded the chance to spend time with different contestants within the festival, she had a larger and higher appreciation of the various cultures in South Africa.
“You do not really realise how diverse we are until you spend time with the people around you who do not have the same background and traditions as you.
“I have learnt so much about different cultures, and I think Heritage Day is truly taking the time to learn about a different culture other than your own and embracing it.”
Chantelle Pretorius, of Rietvalleirand within the town, stated having had the chance to trip the arena and reside with other cultures had made her prouder of her heritage and nation. “South Africa is not called a rainbow nation without reason, and Heritage Day is also a reminder that no matter your background, we are all part of one nation.”
Miss SA might be topped at The Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town on October 24, with a reside broadcast on M-Net and Mzansi Magic.
