The African National Congress Youth League wishes to congratulate Ms Demi
Leigh Nel-Peters on winning the Miss Universe beauty pageant competition.

This victory by Ms Nel-Peters who becomes the second South African to win
this competition after Margaret Gardiner from Cape town who won the 1978
competition, is indeed celebration for the entire country and not just her
hometown of Sedgefield. We hope that she will use this position of influence
to become a good role model for young girls in the country, the continent
and even the globe. Her rise to the thrown must become a source of
inspiration for many other young people in this country.

The Youth League once more congratulates Ms Demi Leigh Nel- Peters.
