Miss South Africa Lalela Mswane dazzled at the Miss Universe pageant. Mswane's poise and ability to answer questions under immense pressure impressed tons of people. One of the questions she was asked struck a chord with many:
"What advice would you give to young women watching on how to deal with the pressures they face today?"
"I would implore young women today to choose courage over comfort at every opportunity they get. I'd also like young women to know that since the beginning of time, they've had everything within them to achieve anything they've wanted. It was, unfortunately, the world, that convinced us that we did not."

Miss SA Lalela Mswane brings home 2nd runner-up title from Miss Universe 2021: "You worked hard"
Earlier, Briefly News reported that Mswane was crowned the second runner-up at the Miss Universe pageant. Mswane, 24, received a ton of backlash from some South Africans for going to Israel to participate in the pageant.
Mswane was in the top five with Miss India, Miss Paraguay, Miss Philippines and Miss Colombia. Miss India won the coveted title with Mswane and Miss Paraguay bagging the runner-up titles at the event.
KZN's own Mswane seemed to have impressed judges at the pageant a few times as she stunned the audience with her 'Dove of Peace' national costume just before the weekend.
