“I’m super excited heading into the finale. It has been an amazing journey and I am so thrilled to see what’s next,” Koolen said.
The grand finale will feature South African celebrities, Katlego Maboe as the emcee and renowned DJ Zinhle as the entertainment for the evening which will be produced by the Jan Malan.
When asked what she had gained from her journey so far, Koolen said she had learnt resilience and found the power to inspire others through her campaign #IAMEnough.
Along with the other 24 finalists, Koolen will be contending for the crown by showcasing fabulous designs from local designers LISOF, BeachCult, Tsotsetsi KL, Ryan Keys, JJ Schoeman and Francois Vedemme.
“My biggest challenge was learning to walk in heels other than that it has been a pretty easy ride.”
The finalists will have to impress the celebrity judging panel which includes former Miss South Africa, Cindy Nell-Roberts as the principal judge; Hlengiwe Twala, a former Mrs South Africa; businessman Vusi Zwane; Mel Viljoen, CEO of Tammy Taylor Nails South Africa; and Alice Lee Giannette, Mrs World 2018.
When asked what she would do if she didn’t win, Koolen said, “I will continue on doing the exact same thing that I am doing now, using what I have learnt in this journey to grow my campaign more and make a difference in the lives of others.”
The finale will have a delayed broadcast on SABC 3 on 11 November at 7.30pm.
