Adè van Heerden
Adè is a 25-year-old medical doctor and second lieutenant in the South African Military Health Services. This former Miss South Africa (2017) hails from Herold’s Bay in the Western Cape. Adè won Protea colours in rhythmic gymnastics at the age of 13 and was a gold medal winner at the All African Championships. As a junior doctor, Adè doesn't find too much time to spare, but when she does, boxing and hiking are top of the list, along with baking anything from brownies to extravagant cakes.
