Shudufhadzo Musida Biography
Shudufhadzo Musida is a South African model and beauty pageant titleholder who was crowned Miss South Africa 2020. She was crowned Miss South Africa 2020 on 24 October 2020. She will represent South Africa in Miss World 2021. Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi inspired Musida to enter the Miss South Africa pageant “because of her grace and her ability to make a statement without straining her voice.”
Musida is an advocate for mental health awareness and the educational and economic empowerment of children and women. She said: “I plan to bring more awareness to mental health, especially in rural and disadvantaged areas, because I truly believe that we need to work on the mind for any change to come about in this country. I plan to mobilise various stakeholders and the nation so we can bring about educational empowerment through the tackling of issues such as period poverty among young girls, workshops that teach children about the importance of mental health from a young age, and mentorship programmes for young women so they can be empowered to be agents of their own future.
“I will continue the fight against food insecurity in rural communities because children can only be their best at school when their basic needs are met. I believe that all of this will continue the efforts of bringing about economic empowerment in this country as more children will be given a fair chance at becoming active members of the economy through educational empowerment.”
Musida has worked as a model and appeared in titles such as Vogue Italia where she modelled for Selfi and Rharha. She was appointed as an ambassador of The Bookery – which has been setting up school libraries in under-resourced public schools since 2010.
