Sean van Noordwyk bested 14 other finalists to be named Mr World South Africa 2021 in a competition held on Saturday, May 22 in Johannesburg.
The 26-year-old actor and model from Gauteng succeeded former Mr World South Africa and Mr World 2019 first runner-up Fez Mkhize.
In a post on his social media page, he shared that taking each other into consideration is the only way we can possibly achieve unity especially during this difficult time of the pandemic.
“Placing yourself in your neighbor’s shoes. Spreading as much love, kindness, and hope that we possibly can,” he said.
Sean will represent his country South Africa at the next edition of the Mr World international pageant.
Mr World SA is an international ambassador for doing good within his community and country the title falls under the leadership and support of the Miss World Organisation.
In 2020, Mr World SA took over the management of a new title – Mr Gay World SA. Both titles are under the banner of United With Purpose which promotes equality and unity regardless of race, religion, colour or creed.
