Apple Vannie Hanover Park is a Graceful Goal-getter


Keegan Lee Croy is a little beauty queen with big dreams. While the whole world has been tinged with the darkness of COVID-19, somehow, Apple, as she is affectionately known, has managed to sashay and shine on every platform she graced.

Thirteen-year-old Apple hails from Hanover Park and is currently a Grade 8 learner at Mountview High School. She has participated in community pageants since the tender age of 4 and in 2015 made her mark beyond the borders of Hanover Park.

The year 2020 proved to be twenty plenty for the teen as she scooped up the following titles: Miss Hollywood, Miss Peach Perfect, Miss Tourism South Africa and Miss Aquamarine. She was also the First Princess for Miss Teen South Africa 2020 which was held on the 10th of October in Johannesburg. Apple then participated in Miss Empress of South Africa 2020, an online pageant in which she was crowned the best overall winner.

One can certainly say that Apple has the Midas touch!

Many crowns have glistened on Apple’s head since she decided to pursue modelling. Miss Cape Flats 2016 and Miss Queen of the Cape 2016 are only a few of the titles that Apple holds. She has also been nominated for the African Children of the Year award. An indication that there is more to this vibrant young lady than just her beauty. She has been actively involved in charity endeavours since the age of 5 and has made her mark as a beauty with a heart of gold.

Apple is determined to encourage her peers and the youth of Hanover Park to go confidently in the direction of their dreams and to use every disadvantage to their advantage. She is an example of someone who grabs the opportunity of a lifetime, in the lifetime of the opportunity.
