"I'm a girl from locations – very simple – and I feel I don't deserve to be here at all. I did nothing to deserve to be here but I feel really blessed that people feel that I deserve to be here. And I feel really privileged and really blessed and it's really humbling," Sobetwa said, as reported by iAfrica.
