Shudufhadzo Musida On The Person Who Helped Her Overcome Her Fear of Public Speaking. It is not an easy thing to jump on stage and address a crowd of people. A lot of people out there shy away from public speaking. But if you are Miss South Africa, like Shudufhadzo Musida, it goes without saying that there will be interviews as well as speeches during your reign and beyond. Thousands of people will be watching and listening to you every time you speak, so confidence will have to be your middle name.
Shudu recently revealed that she also used to struggle with doing speeches while she was at school. It’s difficult to believe, because we all know that once Shudu opens her mouth, we get mesmerized by her intelligence as well as confidence. She gives all the credit to her grandmother, who taught her confidence from a very young age.
According to our reigning queen her grandmother was a well respected village elder with so much wisdom. Shudu says her grandmother gave her her voice, and also taught her how to think. One of the best lesson that Shudu received from her granny was to know the importance of using her voice, how she needed to be heard, and how she should use her voice respectfully. “First know and understand, the talk,” her grandmother would say to her.
Hr grandmother also emphasized the importance of Shudu standing up for herself and other people. This include people who have been wronged, embarrassed, humiliated and mistreated “I learnt social justice on my Gugu’s knee,” she said. We are pretty confident that with such a powerful upbringing, Shudu is going to do wonders at the upcoming Miss World pageant.
“I used to struggle when I had to do speeches in school. I’d always be close to tears because it was so terrifying. Now I’m on the world stage,” Shudu captioned her inspirational video.
