Reigning Miss South Africa Shudufhadzo Musida is currently facing some backlash over her term as the title holder. A simple tweet stating her intentions of running the country as the first female president, fell flat when people criticised her role in society as Miss SA.

Arguably, Zozibini Tunzi's victory was seen as a step in the right direction. Shudufhadzo's win was proof of that as both ladies redefined what it meant to be a beauty queen in this day and age. However, Shudu's reign is being mocked as she frequently posts bikini pictures and selfies. For many, they feel her duties as Miss SA are not being fulfilled because she rarely speaks out about social ills, neither is she seen actively making change.

Yesterday, she tweeted, "I want to be president," and expressed her eagerness with a pleading face emoji. But the reactions were very cold.

Miss South Africa came to her defense and reminded her that her dreams are valid and they stand by her, "We believe that the ability to succeed in the face of adversity, while staying true to ideals and principles of a better society gives birth to greatness. We believe that when women face their power and embrace their future they can take on any position and succeed! We all have dreams within us and may we take courage today to pursue them and take up space!"

This morning, Shudu proved that she is using her platform for the greater good and the betterment of society. Daily Sun reported that the beauty queen took a short left trip to KwaZulu-Natal, at a township rocked by Gender Based Violence and HIV. According to the publication, Inanda which is minutes away from Durban has the highest number of HIV infections, hence the reason for visiting the area.

This is part of her Gender Based Violence and HIV campaign she has collaborated with eThekwini Mayor, Mxolisi Kaunda. With their Dreams Programme they are looking for ways to manage HIV infections in the country by lowering it.

At the launch the beautiful Shudu empowered young women to priorities themselves at all costs. โ€œYou have to show up. Donโ€™t forget to show up for yourself. While weโ€™re taking on this health fight, itโ€™s important to love and put yourself first. I know you will protect yourself,โ€ she said as quoted by the publication.
