The beautiful Bhavna Jaikaran.

“I am an empowered individual and I love spreading my contagious energy with anyone I come into contact with,” said Jaikaran, who holds a new title of Warrior Princess as well a MotoFind ambassador.
Jaikaran draws her inspiration from the pioneer reigning Miss Empress, Tshepo Makupu, who she believes personifies the words fierce, fearless and bold. Makupu started her reign last year in December.
“Being part of Empress South Africa gave me the opportunity to grow and draw inspiration from all the amazing women I have been surrounded by. I feel that this platform gives women the ability to break free from gender rules and show that we are beauty with a purpose,” she said.
