Paarl resident is Miss Petit SA

A Paarl resident was recently crowned Miss Petite South Africa 2018 in Pretoria and has been invited to attend Little Miss Universe in Turkey in May next year.

Sarah Ruth Eichler, a Grade 3 home-school learner was selected to represent the Western Cape as a Mr and Miss Junior South Africa 2018 finalist.

There were altogether nine girls in the 7-8-year-old category from across the country in the Miss Petite age group.

The competition took place in Proclamation Hill in Pretoria last month and the contestants were judged in different categories: casual wear, evening wear and interviews, and for fun there was also a themed wear round. Each year the organisers choose a different theme and the contestants can dress-up accordingly. This year the theme was “Futuristic Sci-Fi” and Sarah went as a futuristic ballerina.

Sarah attended the pageant along with her mother, modelling coach Reana van Tonder, and 10 other models from RVT Modelling School (and their mothers). RVT brought four of the main titles home to the Western Cape, as well as several other runner-up titles.

During her year of reign, Sarah will be attending various events, supporting a number of charities and trying to find sponsors to raise the funds needed to participate internationally in Turkey. Sarah deeply admires Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, South Africa’s Miss Universe 2017, and like Demi she dreams of entering an international pageant.

She says: “When I first saw Demi on TV I saw that she was one of the shortest contestants . . . She showed me that dynamite comes in small packages and even though I am little, I can still change the world.”

If you would like Miss Petite South Africa 2018, Sarah Eichler, to attend your function/charity event or if you would like to become one of her sponsors, please contact her mother at misspetitesa@gmail.com.
