Thato Mosehle was crowned the 1st runner-up at the Miss South Africa 2020 pageant held on 24 October, 2020.

Mosehle was born on 6 April, 1995, in Stilfontein in the North West Province in South Africa. She started school as Strathvaal Primary School and completed high school at The High School for Girls Potchefstroom.

Thato obtained her MBCHB degree at the University of the Free State in 2018. At the time of the Miss South Africa pageant she was working as a medical doctor and completing her internship at the Klerksdorp-Tshepong Hospital complex. She aspires to become an anaesthesiologist one day. She was also a part time make up student at the Beauty Therapy Institute.

Her mother Lesego is a police woman and her father Stoffel works as an operational director for a security company and has started small scale farming. She also has a 21-year-old brother.

Thato believes that Oprah Winfrey is an example of living a purpose-driven life but says she takes inspiration from people that she meets every day: “I have been inspired by presidents, business owners, waitresses, patients and the list goes on. If you take the time to listen to people’s stories, you will see the treasure that you can apply to your own life.”

She says that getting a good education has allowed her to thrive in a career that was once impossible for people like her to even be considered to work in. Her dream is to see other young individuals starting legacies of success stories within their own families.
