Mrs SA 2023

From childhood watching Miss SA, I dreamt of gracing such a platform. However, upon my return to SA from Dubai , age constraints kept me from  pursuing the title. I entered Miss Commonwealth SA and placed 1st Princess but I always wanted to try for an international title and that is when I came across Mrs SA. I loved the fact that Mrs SA gave married women a platform and how business-minded they are in using the platform to showcase your brand. This was such an amazing opportunity to share my brand, Perfect Fit, with an audience of like-minded women and to go on a transformative journey.

Perfect Fit specialises in supportive bras and has a deep commitment to helping women. One of the ways this is fulfilled is through The Perfect Fit Foundation, which is an integral part of the business. A portion of the proceeds goes towards the foundation, and its primary mission is to support underprivileged mastectomy patients who may not have the means to afford reconstructive surgeries.

Participating in Mrs SA wasn’t merely about competition; it was a voyage of self-discovery and growth. Month after month, I witnessed not just my own development, but that of all the ladies that entered. The experience enriched us with invaluable skills, and more importantly, created a deep sense of sisterhood among us that will forever be there.

Breast Health Foundation

Supporting the Breast Health Foundation (BHF) was an easy choice due to the incredible work they do for breast cancer patients. Plus, it aligned with my business, Perfect Fit. I firmly believe in giving back and understand the profound impact that regaining confidence can have on a person’s life. Through our collaboration with BHF, The Perfect Fit Foundation provides underprivileged women the chance to regain their confidence and, in essence, reclaim their lives.

Painting hospitals

In 2022, we assisted BHF with painting Helen Joseph Hospital and then in 2023, we assisted them with painting Dr George Mukhari Academic Hospital. I work for The Facilities Company full-time which helped with the sponsorship. The Facilities Company specialises in comprehensive solutions for building, fitouts, and infrastructure management. They offer a turnkey solution whereby a team of contractors are all run in-house with an array of expertise. This sponsorship encompassed the provision of paint, necessary materials, and volunteers from The Facilities Company who dedicated their time to paint the hospitals.

The Facilities Company loves that painting hospitals is a lasting, impactful task. It also speaks to what the company essentially does: maintenance. Painting a hospital may seem like a simple task, but it goes a long way in creating a positive and comforting environment for patients and their families. Hospitals can often be intimidating and stressful places, and a fresh coat of paint can make a significant difference in uplifting the atmosphere and promoting healing. We value the idea that our efforts have a lasting impact on the well-being of the patients who rely on these medical facilities.

Meaningful cause

By assisting BHF in improving the physical condition of their chosen hospitals, we are aligning The Facilities Company’s mission with a meaningful cause. It allows us to apply our skills and resources to a task that directly contributes to the comfort and functionality of healthcare spaces, making them more conducive to patient care.

In essence, our continued support for BHF isn’t only a demonstration of our commitment to corporate social responsibility but also an opportunity to leverage our expertise to make a real difference in the community. We see it as a way to give back by doing what we do best: maintaining and enhancing the physical environment, ultimately contributing to better healthcare experiences for those in need.
