Introducing MDSA Finalists! Portia Lauren Naidu

17 July 2023

Name: Portia Lauren Naidu
Miss Deaf South Africa 2023 Finalist
From Johannesburg, and formerly from Durban.
Schooled at MC Kharbhai School for the Deaf in Lenasia and later at Durban school for the Hearing Impaired in Amanzimtoti.

An avid Bollywood fan who loves music, dancing, watching movies, swimming, good food, travel and ready to explore new things.

“I graduated with a diploma in Business Management and  currently a full time student at Wits University – BEd. Foundation Phase Teaching.

My first language is Sign Language and I’m hoping to create an awareness of the Deaf culture and community with the hope of bridging the gap between the hearing and the deaf communities.

As a Miss Deaf South 2023 finalist winning this title would present me the greatest opportunity and position me to inspire other Deaf people and parents of Deaf children that being deaf is not the end of the world.
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

To individuals and businesses alike, I need your support however small it may be. I welcome donations, sponsors, funding, opportunities, raising awareness and the want to learn a new language to bridge that gap. My success depends on you.”
