As she hands over her crown, outgoing Miss SA is thrilled she’s been able to help destigmatise mental health issues.

"[That’s] adapting to the situations around us to make the world a better place. So the work should never stop just because we feel like the world has stopped. We all have a responsibility to practise our agency and adapt in the best way we can — as we did with Covid-19.”

During her time as Miss SA, Musida completed her honours in international relations at Wits University — and also wrote a book. Shudu Finds Her Magicis a children’s book about her experience of being bullied as a child.“My mandate, when I became Miss SA, was mental health. We need to empower the minds of people so they can better themselves and be empowered enough to face the situation we are facing right now,” says Musida. “I think we [team Miss SA] did the necessary work that was needed to to empower people.”

Musida believes the mind is the most important tool for empowerment, and her book is aimed at the mental health of children. It also complements her online “” initiative in collaboration with theSA Depression and Anxiety Group.“It was important to destigmatise mental health from the ground up, which is what the book aimed to do. So we targeted children because it’s time for us to give them a seat at the table [on] important social issues such as mental health.” headtopics.com
