Ludina Ngwenya was crowned Miss Soweto 2021 and she has plans to advocate and help those who are different in society realise that their voice matters.

Miss Soweto said she wants to represent other young women and help them to believe in themselves in societies where beauty is standardised.

She revealed that she wants to stand for people who are different. Ludina went down memory lane saying she entered Miss Soweto because when growing up she did not see women who were like her.

Ludina Ngwenya told a local publication that children fear going to school because of their difference.


This is the reason why she studied as a foundation phase teacher to help instill confidence in children who do not believe in themselves.

Ngwenya was crowned Miss Soweto 2021 at an event held at Soweto Theatre on Saturday. As the winner she walked away with a grand prize worth R100 000 from White Star.

She also won a brand new Toyota Starlet for the year of her reign. Ontsiametse Tlhopane was crowned the first Princess whereas Thando Tshabalala was the second Princess.
