It was an evening of glitz and glamour as Miss South Africa 2018, Tamaryn Green, was crowned at the Sun Arena in Pretoria Sunday evening.


Green competed against 11 other beautiful young women from across the country to scoop the prestigious crown.


She will also represent the country on a global stage at Miss Universe SA. Green made it to the top two and beat 26-year-old, University of Cape Town graduate Thulisa Keyi, who walked away with the Miss World SA.


According to the official Miss SA website, Green says it’s been a life-long dream of hers to enter the competition. She also shared what she hopes to do during her reign:


"As Miss South Africa I will be in a strong position to assist with the reconstruction of a better South Africa. I have always been passionate about making a positive and progressive difference in the lives of others.


"I grew up being exposed to two very different worlds: That of the fortunate and less fortunate. I want to assist in bringing those worlds together. I believe this can be done by providing equal education to all. Actions speak louder than words!  I want to be a voice to those who cannot be heard, a servant and role model to South Africans and to the people of the world at large.


"Importantly, as Miss SA I want to inspire and empower women to be the best version of themselves. I want to show them that we have a voice and it can be heard, seen and valued! As a woman I believe there is a golden thread linking all women across the globe. Together we should be able to uplift, inspire, nurture and educate the youth of our world," says Green.


Miss South Africa 2018 walks away with a prize package of R3 million.


Breakfast with Martin Bester spoke to Tamaryn Green on Monday morning, less than 24 hours after her crowning.
