AWSUMCelebrity Interview

“Tonight I stepped on this stage as Demi-Leigh NelPeters; I now greet you as Miss South Africa 2017. Thank you.”

With these words, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters stepped into her role as a national role model for the women of South Africa and officially the most beautiful woman in the country. AWSUM News chatted to DemiLeigh about her journey from the small coastal town of Sedgefield, where she matriculated with five distinctions at Outeniqua High School, to stepping into the national limelight.

Q Tell us about your journey to the Miss SA crown, which you won on 26 March 2017. A I have dreamt of this my whole life, since I was just a little girl. At first I just admired the glamorous women walking on the Miss SA stage, but I have been inspired and motivated by their achievements. I have learned to work hard and do well at school and to push my limits. If I can make that difference to just one girl’s life, I would have done well. My dream came true – yours can too. Q How did you feel when you were announced as Miss South Africa 2017? A I was overwhelmed. It was an eight-month long process of blood, sweat and tears. The amount of work going into the campaign is staggering. I worked very, very hard for this, and am so deeply grateful that all this hard work paid off. Q You have been in leadership positions and making a difference since you were at school. What were those positions? A I was the first girl in my high school to be chosen as head girl of both my school and my hostel. I was also elected as the Deputy Junior Mayor of the George City Council in Grade 11. Q Tell us a bit more about your family. A I grew up in two loving households. My parents got divorced when I was two years old and I am so lucky to have had four wonderful and supportive parents throughout my life. I never felt like anything was wrong, because this was my normal. Q What do you do in your free time (if there is such a thing)? A I like going to the gym for a good workout, and also to do ParkRuns. I love taking my two Yorkies, Benji and Baxter, for a walk. I also like reading – mostly fiction and science fiction, and also autobiographies. I have recently read The Alchemist and Charlize Theron’s autobiography. Q What is your favourite food? A I’m a real foodie! I am not fussy at all and eat just about everything. I love tucking into oxtail in a red wine reduction served with butternut and samp, and also barbeque pork rib with oven-roasted vegetables. And you can give me dark chocolate and good coffee anytime. Q What do you plan to contribute during your reign? I want to promote entrepreneurship and job creation for the women of South Africa. I hold a B.Com in Business Management and Entrepreneurship from North-West University and it will stand me in really good stead to follow in the footsteps of successful previous Miss South Africas such as JoAnne Strauss, Cindy Nell and Basetsana Kumalo. Q What would you like to say to the young girls and young women of South Africa? A When you believe in something, believe all the way. Don’t be scared to be different. Make your mark – you will find a way to to do anything that you are passionate about. When you look back, don’t ask yourself ‘Why didn’t I?’ Nothing is impossible. The word itself says ‘I’m possible’.

All things gingery!!!

You can eat it, you can drink it, it’s wonderful in sweet dishes and equally delicious in savoury dishes, the wonderful juicy rhizome that turns food into something special. Ever since I was a little girl I have been in love with ginger, my father used to make bottles and bottles of fiery ginger beer and he could never understand how my sister and I could gulp down litres of the fiery stuff from a tender age we loved it, in fact one batch was left to long and I think we got tipsy from it. My grandmother used to make wonderful sticky ginger bread loaves and biscuits every week, we used to cut thick slabs of ginger bread and spread it with a thick layer of cold butter and top it with cheese, it was heaven, I’ve yet to taste a gingerbread like my granny used to make, sadly she took the recipe to her grave. There is An old Indian proverb says that “everything good is found in ginger” and its true it is used in foods, drinks and medicines. My granny used to make us ginger tea when we were feeling nauseous, or serve hot milk sweetened with honey with grated ginger. Ginger has wonderful properties, its anti-bacterial, antiinflammatory and anti-oxidant, You can even add ginger to baths and foot soaks. Because of ginger’s anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial action, it may help keep skin clear and free of blemishes. It may also help fight skin discolouration and aging, both when consumed and topically applied. Ginger may even help your sex life. The famous Arab physician Avicenna wrote that ginger “increases lustful yearnings”, and ginger appears in the Kama Sutra. Rat studies confirm that ginger may help increase testosterone. But enough of that, let’s make some sweet stuff with ginger. Sam Linsell, top South African food stylist and Drizzle and Dip blogger – has done it again with beer, this time creating a triple ginger and stout cake with a stout butterscotch sauce. “If you are a lover of all things ginger in baked goodies like I am, then this one is for you,” she says. “I have used three types of ginger which each add their own ‘gingery’ flavour dimension as they act as independent components. They also do not overwhelm, so if you are a real ginger-head, you can add more. The cake itself is not overly sweet with the stout bringing a smidge of desired bitterness to the flavour. A rich amber caramel sauce is made with the remainder of the beer.

Let’s Cook!!

Triple Ginger and Stout Cake Cooking notes: • Pre heat the oven to 180 °C and line a 20–22cm square or round cake tin with baking paper. • If you are making this in advance, heat the sauce up a little before serving. • Recipe makes a one-layer cake.

• • •

Ingredients •

Cake • ¾ cup Castle Milk Stout Chocolate Infused • 120g of butter • ½ cup (110g) brown treacle sugar or muscovado • ¼ cup golden syrup • 1 free-range egg • 1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger • 1 tablespoon finely chopped preserved ginger in syrup • 1 teaspoon ground ginger • ½ teaspoon salt • pinch of white pepper • pinch of ground nutmeg • 1¾ cups (230g) flour • 1 teaspoon baking soda

• •

Stout butterscotch sauce • 1x 340ml bottle Castle Milk Stout Chocolate Infused • 2 tablespoon butter • 1 ½ cups sugar • 1 cup cream • 1 teaspoon vanilla • 1–2 teaspoon/s sea salt flakes

Instructions • To make the cake, place the stout and butter in a small pan and bring it to boiling point. Cook briefly and stir until the butter has dissolved.

Remove it from the heat and allow it to cool a little. Add the stout and butter mix to a large bowl with the sugar and golden syrup and whisk until it’s well combined. Add the egg and whisk again. Add all the spices and whisk. Sift the flour and baking soda in by hand and whisk briefly until smooth (it will be fairly runny). Decant this into a lined 20cm cake tin (square or round), tap the filled pan to remove and bake for 30–35 minutes. The cake is done when it’s springy to the touch and when a sharp knife pierced into the thickest part comes out clean While the cake is baking, make your butterscotch sauce. The quantities make a little more than you need for the cake but store the rest in a sterilised jar and use with other desserts. Bring the Castle Milk Stout Chocolate Infused and butter to the boil in a medium-sized pan and allow it to simmer for about 10 minutes until it has reduced by more than half. Add the sugar and continue to let this cook, stirring frequently until it reaches 110 °C on a sugar thermometer. This will take around 15 minutes. When it has reached temperature, add the cream while stirring constantly. Carry on cooking this until it thickens more. Once it has reached 105 °C on the thermometer, it is ready. It will also thicken more as it cools. Let the cake cool to room temperature and then pour the warm sauce over to serve. Keep any extra on the side to serve.

TWO SIDE S OF THE STORY

HOLEY MOLEY, BRO Torn, ravaged, distressed, slashed, ripped, whatever! As long as your sweater looks like it’s ready to be binned, it’s big news. Kanye West blew everyone’s mind with his range of destroyed sweaters riddled with holes and tears and now everyone wants a jersey that’s falling apart. Of course, it’s completely unisex, so girls you can borrow your guy’s beaten up pullover and you’re hot to trot. Charcoal destroyed sweater, R499, Factorie.

Kanye West dropped the knitting needles when he designed his blockbuster tattered sweater. A star wearing stars – what could be more on fleek? Gigi Hadid lifts the bar another notch when it comes to the forever jeans and sneakers combo.

If you’re worried about that embarrassing white flaky stuff that settles on your shoulders, think again. It hits just about everyone at some time as dry scalp and / or dandruff is a common scalp condition. Add to that cold weather and heaters on full blast and scrunching up your hair under a beanie or cap can also add to the snow storm. Check out that list of ingredients on the back of the bottle and if you see zinc pyrithione, you got it bae. It’s the big guns found in products like Head & Shoulders Shampoo, R51.95 and Gill 2 in 1 Conditioning Shampoo, R41.95, which help to cool, calm and comfort an itchy or sensitive scalp. If you want to be flake-free forever then you must use it at least twice a week so change up your in-shower routine. Don’t wash your hair with shower gel or soap and don’t use hair gels, sprays or styling products that contain alcohol, as they will dry out your scalp even more. If after a month or so of sticking to your anti-dandruff routine, you’re still shedding and itching, get professional help and go see a dermatologist.

Fashionista and Guess model, Chiara Ferragni, adores velvet from top to toe and you can see why.

FIGHT THE FLAKES

FASHION

Sometimes guys and girls just have to be on opposite sides like these newest street styles. Pepe Sofianos sees it like this --- it’s all dress up for the babes in vampy velvet and super stars and dress down for the dudes in basic beanies and knock-down knits.

RANDPARK PRIMARY SCHOOL (t) 011 793 7434 (e) info@randparkprimary.co.za Rainwater harvesting system In 2016, Rand Park Primary School, undertook to investigate the possibility and benefits of installing a rainwater harvesting system at the school. Together with Aquamat Water Solutions and the Department of Civil Engineering Science at the University of Johannesburg, the school found a suitable option for such a system. The system decided upon was funded in part by funds raised at the School’s Annual Fun Day (the Wacky Walk), the University of Johannesburg and Aquamat. In February this year, installation of the system began and should be completed and ready for harvesting before the commencement of the second term of 2017 (including training for the correct maintenance of the system).

The system allows for the capture, harvesting and storage of up to 40 000 litres of rainwater using the school’s current drainage system which has been redirected to feed into a central drainage channel which collects the water before it is pumped into 4 x 10 kL UV-lined tanks to prevent bacterial growth. The water stored will be used to irrigate the sports and other grounds of the school and amount to a large savings of both water and municipal costs for the school, which can then be redirected to enhance the education of the learners at the school. To further redirect funds, the school has opened up the option of sponsorship of any one of the 4 x 10 kL tanks that are being used to store the water from interested parties.

NORTHCLIFF HIGH SCHOOL Monty Python’s Spamalot This musical is based on the Monty Python film Monty Python and the Holy Grail which, in turn, is based on the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, but in this version, Arthur and his knights are sent on a divine quest to search and find the Holy Grail. This is a hilarious adventure with nonsense and slightly irreverent content that is guaranteed to not only raise a smile but have the audience rolling with mirth. Don’t miss the chance to see our outstanding acting talent, supported by a live orchestra. This promises to be a large, loud and over-the-top production! The show will run from Wednesday, 31 May to Saturday, 3 June 2017. Page 8

ST PETER’S BOYS PREP SCHOOL (t) 011 705 3423 (e) reception@stpeters.co.za St Peter’s Boys Junior Prep Book Week The JP Boys Book Week was based on the fascinating story of The Wizard of Oz and the aim was to align our week with the Year of the Woman at St Peter’s. The book choice was prompted by a TED talk by Colin Stokes on ‘How movies teach manhood’. The Wizard of Oz to this day remains one of the few classics where the various heroines demonstrate strong leadership, the importance of friendship and building positive relationships by accepting individuals for who they are. The movie, which was made in 1939, displays very little violence, triggers creativity and

imagination, and demonstrates that boys do not always need to be the defenders within a patriarchal society. The themes of courage, perseverance and loyalty that run through the story align with the values of St Peter’s and are needed as strong 21st century skills in the workplace. Throughout the week these themes were reinforced within the classrooms. The dress-up day towards the end of the week was a highlight with delightful Oz characters wandering through the JP Building along the yellow brick road towards their own rainbow’s end.

ST PETER’S GIRLS PREP SCHOOLS (t) 011 367 6631 (e) girlsreception@stpeters.co.za A busy start to the trinity term at St Peter’s Girls Prep The second term started at a fast pace on 3 May!

Congratulations to all the girls, as well as Mr Webb (our headmaster), who took part. The autumn leaves have created a beautiful display of colours around the campus – what a lovely trail on which to compete! The Junior Prep held a Mums and Daughter’s Enchanted Garden Tea Party on the day before Mother’s Day. The girls and their mums dressed up for the occasion and braved the chilly Saturday morning weather to join in the fun. A delicious tea was served and everyone took part in an imaginative activity, which involved creating an ‘Enchanted Garden!’ It has been a great start to this term.

HOËRSKOOL LINDEN (t) 011 888 1433/4 (e) linden@linden.co.za Sake-ontbyt: onsekere tye is ook tye van geleentheid Jong mense moenie vasgevang word in die dampkring van grootmense se negatiwiteit oor die politieke situasie in Suid-Afrika en die toestand van die land se ekonomie nie. Dit was die raad van Bernard Swanepoel, stigter en voormalige hoof van die mynmaatksappy Harmony Gold, en Theo Vorster, hoof van Galileo Capital, by die sake-ontbyt wat op Vrydag, 12 Mei by Hoërskool Linden aangebied is. Cobus Bester, ekonomiese nuusredakteur, het die gesprek geopen deur te sê ons leef in ‘n deurmekaar en uitdagende wêreld, maar hoe meer onsekerheid, hoe meer geleenthede is daar vir dié wat daarop

ingestel is. Te midde van ekonomiese onsekerheid en politieke woelinge het Cobus Bester, Bernard Swanepoel en Theo Vorster ‘n boodskap van hoop aan ons jongmense gebring. Dié drie gesoute sakemanne het ons jongmense aangemoedig om nie vasgevang te raak in negatiewe denke nie, maar eerder hulle toe te spits op die aanleer van vaardighede en die skep van geleenthede. Kinders word deesdae deur die politieke en ekononomiese gebeure en ook swartgallige ouers onder geweldige druk geplaas oor hulle

toekomsplanne. Mnre. Swanepoel en Vorster het die jongmense beslis nuwe hoop gegee sonder om feëverhaaltjies aan hulle te verkoop. “Geluk aan Michelle Maritz en Tia Wessels, twee leerkragte wat die inisiatief geneem het om ‘n verskil te maak,” het Bester gesê. “Die sake-ontbyt raak elke jaar net beter. Sowat 160 leerders en ouers het die jaarlikse geleentheid bygewoon. Ek glo ons gaste het daarby gebaat en sien kans om die wêreld en die toekoms met nuwe perspektiewe en insigte aan te pak,” sê Michelle Maritz.
