MISS SOUTH AFRICA 2023

NATASHA JOUBERT

Natasha Joubert was crowned Miss South Africa 2023 on 13 August 2023.

Joubert was born on 23 July 1997 and is from Tshwane in Gauteng in South Africa.

She attended Laerskool Bakenkop and completed her high school studies at Hoërskool Eldoraigne. She received her B.Com Marketing Management degree in 2020 from Boston City Campus. At the time of her crowning she was a business owner and fashion designer and started her own company, Natalia Jefferys, when she was 19.

Joubert is the youngest of three siblings – she has an older brother, Reinier, and sister, Daniellé; both of whom are attorneys, notaries and conveyancers. Her mother Ninette is also her business partner in Natalia Jefferys and has been an inspiration to Joubert as she received her law degree at the age of 50 and is doing her articles to become a lawyer.

As Miss South Africa, Joubert is much in demand. She has already done magazine covers for Huisgenoot and Clicks as well as hundreds of media interviews. She also worked closely with Miss South Africa Organisation partner MoFaya on creating the pink-coloured, berry-flavoured sparkling drink Berry Queen as well as its striking white, pink and gold can.

The reigning Miss South Africa lists the qualities she believes women should possess in order to make a difference as resilience, self-awareness, drive and relatability.

“A woman who can self-reflect and constantly work on herself, challenge herself and reflect when it is needed. A difference maker is someone who has claimed her vulnerabilities and opens the conversation up in order for others to do the same.”

Her Campaign 

Entrepreneurship and education are close to Natasha’s heart and she is devoting herself to this during her reign thanks to her advocacy campaign The Natasha Joubert Collective (NJC).

Education remains her biggest passion project and she will dedicate a significant focus of NJC to education as a whole. This includes partnering with companies/donors to donate funds to granting access to potential students to bursaries and learning programmes. This also includes the betterment of schools in the form of infrastructure, libraries, mentorship, etc.

Says Joubert: “Entrepreneurship lies at the heart of innovation and economic growth. It is the driving force that propels nations forward, creating jobs, nurturing creativity, and fostering a spirit of resilience. As I pledge to serve our country, I will also commit to cultivating an environment where entrepreneurial spirits can thrive. It pains me to know that more than half of South Africa’s youth lack the financial means to pursue their dreams. I was fortunate to receive a bursary that enabled me to continue my education, and I have been proactive in giving back. Not waiting for a crown on my head, I’ve been working to make a difference.

Natasha believes in second chances and sees it as her responsibility to create a better SA by assisting/facilitating opportunities and possibilities for individuals and communities that deserve a second chance – be it in the form of food security, period poverty, clothing, water and sanitation, etc.
