On the official Miss SA website, Green shared:
“As Miss South Africa I will be in a strong position to assist with the reconstruction of a better South Africa. I have always been passionate about making a positive and progressive difference in the lives of others.
I grew up being exposed to two very different worlds: That of the fortunate and less fortunate. I want to assist in bringing those worlds together. I believe this can be done by providing equal education to all. Actions speak louder than words! I want to be a voice to those who cannot be heard, a servant and role model to South Africans and to the people of the world at large.
Importantly, as Miss SA I want to inspire and empower women to be the best version of themselves. I want to show them that we have a voice and it can be heard, seen and valued! As a woman I believe there is a golden thread linking all women across the globe. Together we should be able to uplift, inspire, nurture and educate the youth of our world.”
This year’s Miss SA pageant have two winners, a Miss World South Africa and a Miss Universe South Africa. The two beauty queens will represent South Africa at the Miss World and Miss Universe pageants respectively.
