Claude Mashego Biography: Career, Nationality, Education, and Everything you need to know about her Life
Claude Mashego is a finalist in Miss World South Africa 2023.
The Miss World South Africa title represents a leadership platform and an opportunity to inspire quality and effective leadership in our country, continent and worldwide.
If she wins Miss World, Claude’s goal is to build a network of young leaders and community builders in South Africa and across the African continent through her non-profit company, the Young Leaders Network.
“There will be communities I can never reach for geographical reasons and because I am just one person. But can you imagine what we could achieve if young people across this country and continent came together with the common goal of building Africa into the powerhouse we know it can be,” says the 24-year old medical doctor.
“For me, pageants have always been about finding a platform that gives one an opportunity and resources to be a community builder, finding my corner and brightening so much that my light inspires the next person to the same in their corner,” says the University of Pretoria Bachelor of Medicine & Surgery graduate.
What does the young girl from Acornhoek, Bushbuckridge, like most about herself? “I’m real. I have been quite intentional about incorporating authenticity into my DNA because I believe that is what makes one relatable. Relatability allows people to connect with you human to human and that’s what amplifies the impact of everything you do,” she says.
Claude is working with the Maripi-Orhovelani Alumni Organization (MOAO), a non- profit organisation founded by the former learners of Orhovelani High School, where she matriculated.
They work on various projects to rebuild the school to higher than its former glory and to empower the learners and communities surrounding the school.
Her wish is to see the inequality gap narrowed and poverty completely eradicated, equal quality educational opportunities and equal quality healthcare services provided for all the citizens of this country.
