Miss World 2013 Megan Young's successor Rolene Strauss quotes the famous South African leader Nelson Mandela in her Instagram account, "Our human compassion binds us the one to the other - not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future." And continues, "South Africa; our suffering is a beacon of hope to the world. It turned into an example of respect, forgiveness and unity. We honour you Mister Nelson Mandela - today and everyday."
Her countrymen knew that she has what it takes to continue the beloved leader's advocacy. And true enough, she rightfully claims the Miss World 2014 Crown. Congratulations, Miss South Africa!
