Stephanie Weil, CEO of the Miss South Africa organization, highlights the pageant’s commitment to providing a platform for winners and runners-up to promote advocacies close to their hearts. Joubert’s dedication to education aligns with her belief in every person’s right to an education.
Call to Action: Joubert Invites National Support
