Remember Miss South Africa 2016 second runner-up Tayla Skye Robinson? Tayla Skye has now been crowned as Queen of South Africa 2017, and will now represent South Africa at Miss International 2017 pageant. The journey is not going to be easy for Tayla as no African has ever won the Miss International title.
Tayla is an Honours student in Marketing at the University of Pretoria and a Ballet Teacher. Tayla is inspired by the South African business woman, Maria Ramos. “She is a prime example of the adage, ‘Nothing is impossible. Considering her disadvantaged youth I find her success and drive inspiring. Regardless of any difficulties she may have faced, today, she is now one of South Africa’s most influential businesswomen of our time. I admire women who dedicate their lives to hard work with the intention of achieving their goals.”

According to Tayla, spare time means luxury time and she spends most of her free time teaching ballet at primary and nursery schools in Pretoria. “I also enjoy a dance class of my own every now and then. In the evenings I have started to learn to produce music on computer software. I’m currently working on a song with local band front man, Tristan Coetzee, from the December Streets.”
Miss International 2017 pageant is scheduled to be held in Tokyo in the month of November. Last year, Tharina Botes, who is of Thai descent, represented South Africa in the Miss International 2016.
