Miss South Africa 2014
NAME: Rolene Strauss

LANGUAGE: Afrikaans, English
Rolene Strauss, 22, is the current Miss Universe South Africa as well as a medical student at the University of the Free State. She is a test tube baby and grew up in a small town called Volksrust, in Mpumalanga. She was a small town girl with big dreams. She wants to be the best she can be, to follow her destiny and someday be the woman who uses what she was given out of grace; to inspire, to love, to sympathize and to give.
After traveling abroad to model at the age of 16, she realized that her goal is not only to become a model, but a role model. She aims to represent her country to the best of her ability, finish her medical studies, obtain an MBA and start a business focusing on women's health.
Blessed with wonderful people in her life, endless opportunities and love, she has learned that giving doesn't mean having less. She thanks her country, family and loved ones for the roles they have played in the person she became.
